The Piper's Last Call

It was announced a little bit ago that Syd Barrett died at the age of 60. He's been suffering from Diabeties, and hasn't made any music in a dog's age. Allmusic entry.

The early Pink Floyd stuff had a very profound influence on my writing and, such as it was when I performed, my playing. This was NOT the way I wanted to end what had been a very good show today.

I'm planning a small tribute on the morning show tomorrow.

Godspeed, Syd. Wish you were here.
