Its sad to hear that Syd Barrett, the co-founder of legendary Pink Floyd has died. He was one of the founder with Roger Waters and was their first lead guitarist. Gilmour came instead of him later when he left the band for his health reasons. He had some diabetic problems and was also addicted to drugs like LSD. However, he will always remain as an influence on his Floyd bandmates, who previously dedicated the song “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” and the 1975 album “Wish You Were Here” to him. At their last reunion performance during last summer’s Live 8 benefit, Gilmour, Waters, Wright and Mason performed the latter album’s title track in Barrett’s honor.
