Song Notes: Today it was made public that Syd Barrett passed away. He was one of the founding members of Pink Floyd, the "crazy diamond" guitar player who wrote most of the band's early material. He went into seclusion because of a mental illness.
The song "Dark Globe" is from the 1970 solo album The Madcap Laughs, and speaks volumes about how he spent his last decades. Yes Syd, we will miss you.
R.I.P. Syd Barrett (January 6, 1946 – July 7, 2006)
