Some lyrics of his:

"Emily tries but misunderstands, ah ooh
She often inclined to borrow somebody's dreams till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play

Soon after dark Emily cries, ah ooh
Gazing through trees in sorrow hardly a sound till tomorrow

There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play

Put on a gown that touches the ground, ah ooh
Float on a river forever and ever, Emily, Emily
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play"

May his memory forever rest in peace and not be hacked to pieces by the public now that that restless soul is gone. He WAS a great songwriter!
Makes one wonder though, how Pink Floyd history had been today if he hadn't "tipped over".

Matilda Mother

See Emily Play
Bike.....

some of my favorite yep that's Cid (how we spelled it) tunes.

From an old music rag I had in 74, Dark Side was about Syd Barret so I guess
that Crazy Diamond was further tribute. And then there's The Wall for all the
crazies IMO, a very depressing movie also IMO which made Pink into Punk.

Anyone have any music from Pink Anderson or Ray Floyd?

Sniff, gone to the great gig in the sky.

Always was impressed by how the rest of the band always treated Syd like he was sort of wounded in action, and still one of the gang, and they always thought of him in everything they did knowing that without Syd they'd be someplace different, someplace other than the amazing place that was Pink Floyd.

See you Sid.
