syd barrett, r.i.p.

The crazy diamond shines no more, having succumbed to complications from diabetes on July 7. See this Slate article about his life.

I guess the news of his death came out yesterday, but I missed it somehow. When I was a kid my brother purchased a copy of "The Madcap Laughs", and some of those songs, recorded when Syd was half crazy (at least), have stuck with me all this time. You never know what's going to get absorbed into your musical psyche.
