Syd Barrett - 1946 - 2006

In Remembrance.



Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Now theres a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the Steel breeze.

Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, you legend, You martyr, and shine!



You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Well you wore out your welcome with random precision, rode on the Steel breeze.

Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, You prisoner, and shine!

Good man, Tozzy.

Yeah, I'm not partial to the Syd-era Pink Floyd... its a bit to nursery rhymish for me. But I know that without his influence they would never have become the band they are, and for that I owe Syd Barrett the world, he will be missed.

like I said in some other thread...I wonder if Pink Floyd will finally reunite for one last album...

and personally, I think Syd-era Pink Floyd is the best...

i doubt they will. each of them has their own things to be doing, and i don't think they will reunite at all to do any albums or anything like that. live 8 was a one off.

I am not all partial to Syd era PF either, but you cannot deny his influence on Roger and the bands origins. RIP your crazy old bugger.

Floyd + Waters = Aural Orgasms.

Hear, hear.



I still say that Saucerful of Secrets was ahead of it's time, and groundbreaking.

Syd Left his mark.

This song is about their crazy friend who got sent away to an asylum
R.I.P. Syd Barrett

Artist: Pink Floyd
Album: Wish You Were Here
Title: Wish You Were Here


So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change?

And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground. What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

i can't be bothered to do double quotage but...

syd didn't get sent away to an asylum.

he just went home.


and possibly, but i think "shine on you crazy diamond" refers more to the fact he was in the most creative, individual distinctive way, a genius (after all there's alot of specualtion on the fine line between genius and insanity) and a diamond. a seemingly normal element, a piece of carbon, but this one shines and shimmers strangely, and is all but amazing amidst the other bits of carbon, which are the same, but are just arranged differently, and don't have the same incredible properties. that difference in who he was, gave him his awesome creativity, his ability to shine, shimmer, and create beautiful and most wonderful music. keep shining syd.

he's a crazy diamond. a diamond in the rough. shine on, shine on.

ps, syd's real name was Roger.

I read an article about him in Spin or Rolling Stones. I can't remember which magazine I saw it the article in.

My boss and I had a really long discussion about him as well. He certainly will be missed.

In honour of Richard Wright.


The smile on his face in this performance just strikes right into your soul, just as much as this, one of his greatest pieces. A true master of the keys, and an absolute genius of music. Play that great gig, and let us hear your symphony evermore.
