Syd Barrett passed away in July this year. His life story is quite a sad one. He was obviously a musical genious but also a victim of the Bohemian lifestyle of the 1960s. Pink Floyd went onto greater things without him (Dark Side of the Moon, Animals, Wish You Were Here) but some would say there was always the "ghost" of Barrett in the recordings, I guess that'll be more true now.

I'm a fan of the whole catalogue of Dylan's work and what a catalogue it is! Such a rich variety but all with wonderful lyrics throughout. His new album is called Modern Times and I haven't heard it yet. There is a DVD with it at the moment, so I think I'll buy it. I hope you like this tribute sketch of the man, circa 2006.
