His innovative use of guitar techniques, such as dissonance, distortion and feedback, proved influential to many musicians.

HAPPY 65TH BIRTHDAY GORGEOUS SYD "ROGER KEITH" BARRETT. YOU LEFT TO YOUNG!!! RIP....

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 .

He`s a really great,looking good,talented artist and he should be remembered forever,he invented psychedelic music and was an innovator from all points of view and he is a genius for sure!I think his story is the saddest of all times,RIP

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.
