The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story

The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story - Review - TV & Radio - Entertainment

Few people haven't heard Dark Side of the Moon, one of the biggest-selling albums ever. Even fewer haven't heard of Pink Floyd, the band that produced it, but less is known about the original lead singer, guitarist and principal songwriter, Roger "Syd" Barrett, who disappeared from the public stage in the late '60s in a swirl of psychotropic drug abuse.

Very sad indeed. One ponders what Pink Floyd would have been like had Syd Barrett remained healthy and remained with the band. Imagine No Dark Side or WYWH or even The Wall, which all were inspired by what happened to Barrett.
