The world mourns the passing of Syd Barrett, one of the founding members of Pink Floyd, the greatest band in the history of time and space. I am touched to see the huge media coverage – even from smaller, more parochial channels. Merely putting Syd into Google News produces a whole host of comments, tributes, and the like. (Those reading this post later on may get different results – Google News being a thing dynamic.)
Farewell, you Crazy Diamond.
