R.I.P - Syd Barrett

Syd Barrett is easily in my top 5 most favoirite and important musical artists. And now he is dead at 60 years old after 20 years in seclusion.

For those who don't know Barreett was the lead singer of Pink Floyd leading pre Dark Side / The Wall and the inspration for the great Wish You Were Here track "Shine On You Crazy Diamonds."

Now I will go to the park and listen to The Madcap Laughs and Piper at the Gates Dawn on a constant loop.

Syd... Shine on you crazy Diamond. That's too cheest (Editor's Note: edit this out)

Obit in BBC

Epilogue: The day got worse. I went to Dunkin Donuts. No iced coffee. How is that possible? Fucking ghetto ass Dunkin Donuts in Hackensack NJ, I WILL NOT BE BACK!!
