11:19 am - And another ray of sunshine
Syd Barrett, dead at 60.

Additionally, June Allyson has also died, and perhaps her body of work, both entertainment and philanthropic, exceeded Syd's, but nobody ever wrote a song that called her "you crazy diamond."

Well, it's not like he's done anything in 38 years. He was in Flink Poyd for 3 years. Until he was 22. Then he went home to live with his mother.

Dude, you gotta learn how to handle your drugs better than that.

I feel badly that I couldn't figure out who June Allyson was until I read that she was the Depends spokesperson. What a legacy.

I will admit my first thought was "No, not the mom from Lassie!" but then I realized that was June Lockhart.

Syd Barrett went crazy, left Pink Floyd and disappeared ten years before I was born but this still makes me sad.
