Syd Barrett died today…my interest in in Pink Floyd started long after he left the band and I still think they did their best work in the years after he left…having said that, there is no question his songwriting and musical style had a huge influence on psychedlic rock and rock music in general…I don’t know his solo material all that well but the freely distributed “Have You Got It Yet” 19-disc series is a a great representation of his work with Pink Floyd…very psychedlic, very 1967….Shine on, you crazy diamond…
