    Syd Barrett: Some Thoughts

    Syd Barrett was a gentle soul who played his guitar like a soul who'd circled the spheres for centuries: exploring, learning, knowing, teaching. Then he was done. Syd created sounds that had never been heard before or since. His words were a great reflection of his innocence and curiosity in this World. He lived as a complete individual who influence thousands of lives. Syd Barrett became an icon of the 20th century through his imagination and use of drugs (LSD) as Poe, Van Gogh and Monk before him: abstract genius' on individual planes of existence and thought, totally original and impossible to emulate successfully. Syd Barrett was an "absolute original artist", the greatest thing an artist can ever lay claim to. I pray that he knew this in his lifetime and enjoyed some satisfaction from it. Syd Barrett has been missed for a long, long time, but he was never gone. Why should he be gone now? I don't miss Syd any more now than I did before. Some people can never go away. Syd is one.
