Yes, Sad. Arnold Layne, was one of my favourite songs. It is so funny, I really loved all of their 60's stuff (and later stuff), but I guess i was into that music back then (THe Nice, Pink Floyd, etc) I still fire up0 Arnold Layne once in a while to fool all the yungen's , when they try to guess who the band is ;)

Rest in Peace, Sid.


Hmmm, I had to look that name up.... 60 years also isn't old, right...
Arriving somewhere, but not here....


Yep, i've read it too. It was on the ehm...'teletekst' (sorry, don't know how to translate that.  :-\).
It was a rather short item though, only three lines and that was that.  :-\

Kind of the same way how he lived i guess.  :-\

Nevertheless it is quite sad. Can't say that i grew up with his music, being born in 1971, but Pink Floyd was an inspiration, music wise that is, in my life, so i was kinda shocked. Only sixty years of age...

May you rest in peace, Syd.

Syd Barett... the crazy diamond.
Yes, sad news indeed. Not that I knew him well, or something. I never really listened to Floyd. But still, it's a musician who died. A musician that stood on the foundation of Prog.

Rest In Peace.
