This is an abridged thread from the Pink Floyd board. Note: Syd Barrett's real name is Roger Keith Barrett.
rooster: left alone someone said. possibly someone who follows the rumors and what a family member may say. as a person though, and as a matter of real fact, roger has accepted reading material i have sent him and seems to enjoy it. stalking is done by stalkers, but only someone who knows what really occurs can truthfully say that something is a fact.
he greets whom he wants to, and if that's not you, you may take it as he wants to be left alone with no contact whatsoever. there have been so many reports and sightings and opinions about roger and family members giving interviews that it borders on comedy. they protect his privacy by interviews for websites and books. please......................
if any of you remember, there has not been a report where roger has said to someone...'leave me alone'......or.......'i want no contact at all with society'. do you know why? because he is less social than most, but still a human being with feelings that does interact...just not at the level that some think should be.
wowser: gosh! that's us told eh? There is a tone I dislike about this post. Is this about Roger or Syd?
FloydWright: What a load of rationalizing garbage, rooster. Have some real respect for the man.
Kimbersheep: I'm confused...is this about Syd or Roger, if it's Syd I believe he has mabe it abundantly clear he wants to be left alone, if it's about Roger then I'm really confused...
forksinatoaster: Have you gotten any response from Roger Keith? Love to hear what he said if this is true
floydianyid: oh man that dude is a stalker
triangel: What's your website rooster ?......and have you been involved in one of the greatest rock bands ever?....if so i'll drop in and start posting.....love syd
(oh by the way rooster thanks for the ladies underwear you keep sending me.....although i found the infra red photos of me bathing a little odd......love always... your hero syd barrett)
simps: There's something really not right about all these ideas.
And it goes on to another thread:
rooster: got a letter from roger's brother-in-law, mr. paul breen. that's the husband of rosemary, the sister that takes care of him
wowser: fascinating . care to share it?
rooster: he thanked me for the many gifts roger has received. he indicated the only 2 people that take care of roger are rosemary and himself.
triangel: um rooster....can i just ask you....why do you send him gifts?...do you know him or something.....otherwise it's pretty weird dude.
micke: i really hope that you guys leave mr.barrett in peace and stop stalking him,ok.
i know hes a great guy and have done good music,but please leave him alone.
if you see him on the streets just say hi to him,ok.
he dont wanna be disturbed,if you know what i mean.
he need time and space and not any stalkers...
pinkfloydiac25: what are you talking about? who do you send gifts to? and why are people taking care of roger? do you mean syd?
pinkfloydiac25: oh yeah, syds real name is roger, i remmeber that. why are you calling him roger though, no offense, but i think you are really weird and borderline stalker.
WOOF: When is this letter being displayed? Just seen this topic today so it must be two weeks past since the last mail! Come on mate, show it!!
floydianyid: he won't show it, the dudes a sick stalker
seancoolie01: i'm pretty sure he never sent him a letter or gifts, and if it was just to get people to notice, he should either prove us wrong or say that he lied
triangel: I received a copy of Roosters' reply letter:
Please take all of your sick and twisted correspondence/gifts/women's underwear/photographs of me on the toilet etc....and send them to your local police station or shove them up yer *****...because i am making a shitload of cash from people like you without ha
