Syd Barrett, founder of Pink Floyd, dies

From here:

LONDON – Syd Barrett, the troubled Pink Floyd co-founder
who spent his last years in reclusive anonymity, has died, the band
said Tuesday. He was 60.

A spokeswoman for the band said Barrett died several days ago, but
she did not disclose the cause of death. Barrett had suffered from
diabetes for years.

The surviving members of Pink Floyd – David Gilmour, Nick Mason,
Roger Waters and Richard Wright – said they were “very upset and sad to
learn of Syd Barrett’s death.”

“Syd was the guiding light of the early band lineup and leaves a legacy which continues to inspire,” they said in a statement.

There’s a thread in the forums about it if you feel like discussing it.

Yup, still here. Buried under Support tickets with the hosting company I run, support requests over at the Support Forums, trying to get the Kim Possible: Remixed Webcomic
loaded with new works as well as copy over the old ones that I’ve done
(Be sure to take a second and vote over there by the way. It’s a new
month and we’re actually doing well.), work on both my current
fanfiction works, Kim Possible: Mission to Hell and Daria – Star Frontiers: Crash on Volturnus and figure out why that damn shelf takes so long to load and cover up. Plus I need to package up the Random Name Generator and release it via SourceForge.Net. Yup, I’ve got a busy life. 35 items on my personal to do list.


Just a quick shout out to
and it’s Internet Radio Station. Until 4PM US Eastern United States
time or so, they play Pink Floyd music. Kind of nice listening to it
instead of having to spend lots of time searching for the stuff. Give
it a listen to it today. They play a sort of Techo mix after 4PM which
isn’t too bad either. Of course, you need to install WinAmp to listen to it.
