Yes, I'm afraid he is, Mathias. Died at home at 60 years...
Official announcement just made by management.

I'm shocked and sad...
Only this Friday we went to see Roger Waters and we aloud discussed how we thought Syd would be doing. No one had heard anything of him anymore for a long long time...
Now, I learned that Syd already died on that very same day.

Shine on you crazy diamond!

May you now find the peace you never found here on earth.

----------------

Oh where are you now
pussy willow that smiled on this leaf?
When I was alone you promised the stone from your heart
my head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
please, please, lift a hand
I'm only a person whose armbands beat
on his hands, hang tall
won't you miss me?
Wouldn't you miss me at all?

The poppy birds way
swing twigs coffee brands around
brandish her wand with a feathery tongue
my head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
please, please, please lift the hand
I'm only a person with eskimo chain
I tattooed my brain all the way...
Won't you miss me?
Wouldn't you miss me at all

Yes.. interesting that the news wasn't confirmed until the 'Pulse' DVD came out today huh? ;)

Sorry to hear he's gone, but the guy apparently had a very troubled life even without the diabetes.

I still can't help but find the timing rather amusing. This Pulse DVD is long-awaited and oft-delayed.

What a coincidence, the exact same day we were going to buy our Pink Floyd Pulse DVDs.

I know this sounds cruel, but Syd was lucky he made it this far. He was a brilliant musician, but his heavy drug use destroyed his music career, and left him in a quite possibly irreversible physical and mental state.

R.I.P. Syd Barrett
