Syd's Dead

Sadly, in the near future we may all know where Syd Barrett lives, as he is soon to reside in a cemetary. The Pink Floyd founder died in his sleep over the weekend. While it's no great loss to the current music scene -- it's been over 35 years since the ever-reclusive Syd released a record -- his passing will no doubt affect a good number of psychedelic fans who rightfully champion his influence on the genre. Hopefully, his passing will open a new window for biographers hoping to shed light on Syd's mysterious, private life and continued withdrawal from the psych-rock scene he helped to birth.
