Unfortunately the excesses of Syd did destroy what once was a talent, and a gorgeous one at that. I have to agree with Duggie Field`s comment, this definitely applies to many beautiful ones .

Syd Barret.. such a talented, (so)handsome, (so)sexy, mysterious and brilliant man. It`s a shame what happened to him but he`ll always be the best rock artist no matter what. R.I.P Syd Barret.
