Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett (6 January 1946 – 7 July 2006) was an English singer, songwriter, and musician. As a founder member of the band Pink Floyd, Barrett was the lead singer, guitarist and principal songwriter in its early years and is credited with naming the band. He was ousted from Pink Floyd in April 1968 after David Gilmour took over as their new guitarist, and was briefly hospitalised amid speculation of mental illness and his excessive use of psychedelic drugs.

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.
