The first authoritative and exhaustively researched biography of Syd Barrett that fully celebrates his life and legacy as a musician, lyricist and artist

Syd Barrett was the lead guitarist, vocalist and principle songwriter in the original lineup of Pink Floyd. During his brief time with the band (196668) he was the driving force behind the unit. After he left the band he made just two solo albums, which were both released in 1970, before withdrawing from public view to lead a quiet, and occasionally troubled, life in Cambridge, the town of his birth.
