I was a great fan of Syd Barretts. Especially his work on 'Piper at the Gates Of Dawn'.
Overall he was quite gifted in many ways. Aside from the Music which was in a class of its own
he was a very good painter and poet. It's irony how times and the 'State Of Celebrity' have changed. I wonder would the paparazzi be hounding him as he road to market on the bicycle

Cared for by family who loved him and whom he loved. And something else very rare indeed.
