Original Pink Floyd guitarist, songwriter, and frontman Syd Barrett has been the subject of many tales. Some true, some bizarre, most of them compelling. Syd has also been the catalyst, the inspiration for most of Pink Floyd's best work "Brain Damage, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Wish You Were Here, parts of "The Wall", etc). Feel free to post your favorite Barrett story, fact or fiction. One of my favorites is the story that in the early 70's he became a roadie for the band (fiction, of course).
