So you're a fan, but not one of those fans who "think it's 'cool' to be a Pink Floyd fan"?

Are you sure about that?

Brilliant song IMHO.

Apparently, PF didn't/wouldn't play this live and it tended to anger some of their audiences to the point that people threw stuff at the band on stage.

John Lydon has said that Syd Barrett was the original Sid Vicious.

I agree. Some of the harmonics seemed to appear in many groups' creations.

Yes atmosphere is a good way to describe it, John. It's that feeling you get with almost any of the great tunes or albums from this era. Takes me to the time I was a kid and we lived in Phoenix, my older sibs were sort of into the hippie thang. People were more laid back, more accepting, into trying new things, everything was an adventure or a new mystery.

Agreed, Bowie did a nice cover on Pin Ups.

Also, for another nice Barrett cover check out The Hotrats (Supergrass) version of Bike on the Turn Ons CD.

don't know what the fuss is about... this conjurs up dusty faded yellowed photos for me, not a past I want to dig into!  I far prefer Pink Floyd's more spacious stuff (ie post- this claustrophobic tune).... 3 for me (to balance all you 10s)

If you read the books it is quite evident that the "NON" artistic driving force was undoubtedly Gilmour.  He seems to be a strong and focused character.    Even in his NO WAY track he states "There's no way, I'm gonna let go  because It's my show!"

Just by giving the band a suitably abstract and timeless name, Syd played a huge part in the future success of the band.

"The" Pink Floyd.  I think this is the first and only time I've seen them referred to as "The" Pink Floyd.

Oh, by the way, which one's Pink?

Syd you had that mad look in your eye because WELL, BECAUSE YOU WERE MAD, as David said recalling how he saw that look after coming around at the request of the others and not having seen you since school days...  You truly saw how Emily played...  You cried for the moon...  and left us too soon...  I forever love your stuff!
