?Remeber when you were young ... You shone like the sun ..
Dear Syd,
You were just brilliant. If only we knew what was going on in your wandering mind. Your story saddens me but maybe everything just happens for a reason. Your music always puts me in a better mood. The fantasy-like tunes always takes me away to that happy place. I hope your happy wherever you are, you truly deserve it.

Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Shine on you Diamond now and forever. Your legacy of music and you will never be forgotten. -Lee

To the Barrett family:
May the comfort from family and friends continue to strengthen you, and may you find comfort in the words found in the Holy Scriptures: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

Maybe now Syd, as you look down on the fans who still love you & your music, maybe you will finally understand what you meant to all of us, even though you always thought you were no big deal; maybe you'll finally seewhat the hoopla was all about. RIP,Hero,RIP>

For Syd...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

Roger, I, too, was troubled by LSD and lost my passion to perform in front of people that just utterly scared me. May you find a great gentle peace in your soul. We still think about you down here. We may never understand your departure from music totally, but i have a decent understanding.

Genius of Syds magnitude could have never been diluted, thus only a small measure was all it took to influence a world.

July 19, 2006
I have no words for what your music expresses. It's as if memories and emotions picked up instruments and played. I can't say enough how I appreciate your work. I will continue to listen to and study what you have done...and when I pass to your plane, I owe you a drink.
July 19, 2006
Thank you, Mr. Barrett, for all you did and all you created. I will miss you very much.

Thanks Roger (Syd) Barrett. Your life was perfect! there was no Tragedy - and there is no judgement-only the wonderful influence you brought to me and a billion others.I really love you and I mean YOU!
July 18, 2006
Roger,
I'm sorry I never got to meet you. You've taken a part of me with you that can never be replaced. You've changed my life. To the friend I never met - thank you...for everything. To your family, my condolences. We miss you.
July 18, 2006
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Unquestionably he will be missed. He was a beacon of reality in a world of illusion. Pink Floyd has helped me through some very mentally troublesome times with their words. Syd Barrett helped found a great thing.
July 18, 2006
Genius....
July 16, 2006
I´ve just read a book about your life. It was really sad. I hope you´ll find peace wherever you are.
July 16, 2006
One of my high schools bands, I named "The Madcaps" after you Roger (Syd) - thank you for the inspiration.
July 16, 2006
See you soon.Dan from the peacetapes.And thank you for you know what!Many moons ago.I got a bike you can ride it if you want too. Love Dan
July 16, 2006
Sympathy and condolences to all who loved and cherished Syd, especially his family, friends and bandmates. I am listening to some classic Floyd as I write this, awed by your influence and talent in the original Floyd, but obviously dearly missed and remembered in the successive Band. Wow, how many great memories I have of Floyd music! Even passed to my children. What a bright star that has slowly extinguished, a quixotic life of genius and tragedy. No longer a dark side of the moon for you Syd, now and finally, you have set the controls for the heart of the sun and there at last, you truly will shine on. The time has come the song is over, thought I'd something more to say...you are indeed home, home again. RIP
July 15, 2006
We are all equal in the end Syd. I hope the guys write an album of your life for all to hear.
Keep on shining,
July 15, 2006
Wish you were here.
July 15, 2006
Thank you for the great music you were a true leader in this world. Pink Floyd
will forever be my best band in the world.Sorry to see you go.
July 14, 2006
RIP Syd. Thanks for all you have given us. You will be sadly missed.
July 14, 2006
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
July 14, 2006
He will be solely missed. God bless your family.
July 14, 2006
Syd will sadly be missed. His music will shine on as he will. May God send his angels to comfort your family at this most sorrowful time.
July 14, 2006
I was very sorry to hear of Syd Barrett's death. I did not know very much about him. But, over the last few days I have learned that he wrote some very interesting music. I believe Pink Floyd would not have turned out to be the band they later became without him. He will be sorely missed.

Shine on you crazy diamond!!

"Peace, peace! he is not dead, he doth not sleep,
He hath awaken'd from the dream of life;
'Tis we, who lost in stormy visions, keep
With phantoms an unprofitable strife,
And in mad trance, strike with our spirit's knife" Thank you Syd for all the joy you've given me, and may peace be with you at last
July 14, 2006
Your music has inspired me for years and your legend will live on forever. "Shine on you crazy Diamond"!

July 13, 2006
Syd was a lightening rod for the intense creative energy of the sixties. His personal fortitude and pure spirit made space for the Floyd to become the genius group it's been.
What a marvel he was, and how much we all owe him. And how hard for his family and friends.

Sid Barrett; a good human being an artist, a poet, and a great musician, composer, and a lecturer of the dark side of life.
Heaven must be happy to welcome another rock and roller with vision.
May God give him rest in His palace.

May God bless you and thanks for all the coolest music. Pink Floyd will never be the same....See you on the dark side of the moon!

Your music has been an inspiration throughout my life. Many will list you as an original member of PF but to me you will always be a unique and great musician and individual. Thankyou for giving me so many madcap laughs.
July 12, 2006
Thank You for the good times.
July 12, 2006
It is a difficult thing to mourn what you can't say you knew well. I do not know Barrett personally, but I know what he did. He wrote music, he painted, and he created something which not many have, a legend! I love Pink Floyd, I won't lie and say that Syd Barrett Pink Floyd is better...but the greatest music ever written was written about Syd Barrett! a beautiful memorial to a beautiful life... "When I live, I die" - Syd Barrett (No Man's Land)
July 12, 2006
My deepest sympathies to all the band members, family and friends who knew him and loved the music of Pink Floyd.

"It's been just like your gone for just one day, for so long, it's been so hard to bear with you not there". It will be even harder now!Thanks for inspiring me to be the musician I am.

July 11, 2006
IT TAKES SO MUCH TO BE A FULL HUMAN BEING THAT THERE ARE VERY FEW WHO HAVE THE ENLIGHTMENT OR THE COURAGE TO PAY THE PRICE.

ONE HAS TO ABANDON ALTOGETHER THE SEARCH FOR SECURITY AND REACH OUT TO THE RISK OF LIVING WITH BOTH ARMS.

ONE HAS TO ACCEPT PAIN AS A CONDITION OF EXISTENCE.

ONE HAS TO COURT DOUBT AND DARKNESS AS THE COST OF KNOWING.

ONE NEEDS A WILL STUBBORN IN CONFLICT, BUT OPT ALWAYS TO TOTAL ACCEPTANCE OF EVERY CONSEQUENCE OF LIVING AND DYING.

Dude ! Desiderata ! ........I've got a bike and you can ride it if you like, it's got a basket and bells and things to make it look nice..........GOD SPEED, ONENESS WITH THE UNIVERSE AND THY WILL UPON YOU NOW! , God Speed , IN JESUS NAME, AMEN ! just a huge brat fan of Floyd ! If the sound of EVERY FAN'S heartache could be heard, it would be a deafening roar, Shine on.......to infinity +1 :)
July 11, 2006
pink floyd fan always!!!
July 11, 2006
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Thanks for your music. And Pink Floyd would have never been if it was not for you!
July 11, 2006
Syd Barrett was a genious!!!! His words roll off the tongue in a creative cadence and paint beautiful visions from a child's fairytale. No one else can touch Syd's ability for crafting such works of art that hang in the air as you listen! Syd inspired many who love music....Robyn Hitchcock, the Flaming Lips,R.E.M.....me! We all mourn his passing! We all thank him for his great musical talent, and for sharing just a small but brilliant piece of it with us! Thank you for making this world a better place to be, and providing a wonderful soundtrack to so many lives! We love you, Syd!
July 11, 2006
Roger, you are an inspiration to many, and you shall be sorely missed.

July 11, 2006
Syd was a truly unique individual. He completely changed my perception of what music can be, and continues to profoundly influence me to this day. It is a sad day for us, but now Syd is free from this world's troubles.

All movement is accomplished in six stages, and the seventh brings return.
July 11, 2006

To the family, band mates, and friends: I'm so sorry for your loss! He will be missed greatly!
July 11, 2006
Within the confines of our imagination, lies the courage to seek out that to which we cannot fathom; and lest, some choose not the beaten path, but fade into the dark depths of solitude, only to witness what cannot be shared ........
July 11, 2006
Shine On You Crazy Diamond! Your music will continue to influence us. R.I.P.

Beyond this tale of tears,
there is life above.
- J. Montgomery
Roger has always been some place near, and at the same time always out reach. My conflicted and flawed nature seemed to find an accord with his imagination.
I am forever grateful for his inspiration and hope that he has finally found the peace and love we all seek.
July 11, 2006
My respect for Syd Barrett and his musical genius cannot be put into words. I only hope that he is in a better place now and freed from any pain or illness that he felt in this mortal world.

Sad to see you go, Syd. The music of Pink Floyd gave me much comfort during my teen years back in the 70s. Hadn't heard of you in decades. This brought me back. Thanks for the music and memories.
July 11, 2006
Shine on you crazy diamond. We will see you soon in the heavens that await us. God bless the family and of course the band.
July 11, 2006
This is a sad day in my life. I knew that it was going to happen eventually but didn't know how hard it would hit me. I have written a farewell piece on my companies website if anyone would care to read. (this is not a shameless plug)

Farewell old friend, shine on.

Thanks for the memories...
July 11, 2006
July 11, 2006
Shine on Syd.
July 11, 2006
i am in disbelief! Syd is my absolute musical hero, and i know others in my age group who think so too, and consider him the biggest influence to ever have lived! I still champion his records when i DJ in clubs or bars in london to this day and i'm just 28 years old. He was the most legendary of all rock legends and with a childlike simplicity to his blues-infused music which simply said more to his listeners than songs usually can. i'll always remember him as a godlike man, who has always saved my soul time over throughout my life through his music and words. Syd is god. i love him and always will be sad for his passing and celebrate his legacy.
July 11, 2006
May you be at peace. We were two of your biggest fans.
July 11, 2006
See you on the other side; noone kows how many more days, till I'll be joining you there!
July 11, 2006
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
July 11, 2006
syd, we hardly knew ye.
July 11, 2006
We shall miss you forever Syd. Gone but never forgotten to those whose lives you helped touch!

In our hearts you will forever shine on.
July 11, 2006
My condolences to the band and to Syd's family and friends. Syd's music has always been enchanting and haunting, and is still relevant today. "Shine on you crazy diamond". We will always remember you through your wonderful music.
July 11, 2006
A sad day for me today, Shine on Syd, say Hi to Steph for me.
July 11, 2006
For you and me and Dominoes. God Bless ya brother. Be at peace!
July 11, 2006
Syd was one of the finest musicians I have heard. His style stands far out from a lot of other musicians and his legacy will live on. R.I.P and enjoy the great gig in the sky!
July 11, 2006
Syd was the best RIP
July 11, 2006
Shine on Syd. I appreciate your contribution.
July 11, 2006
God Bless you and the many memories that you have given to all of your fans. Pink Floyd was a part of my teen-hood and is still with me forever in my heart and soul. Kiss the Lords hand for me would you..Rest In Peace...
July 11, 2006
Piper at the Gates of Dawn is one of the most under-rated and influential albums of all-time and is a memorial to Syd's genius. I'll be playing it all day today in his honor.
July 11, 2006
goodbye syd piper at the gates holds a treasured place in my music colllection and in my memories and i thank you for that r.i.p
July 11, 2006
goodbye syd; you weren't here neither physically or mentally nearly long enough. but thank you for what you did while you were here! pass in peace
July 11, 2006
Syd was more than a genius. His music crossed all lines (race, status, gender, citizenship and age). I know of only one other that came to earth with that power and more. May the unconditional love and peace of Almighty God be with Syd and his family.Thank you for sharing your God given talent!
July 11, 2006
Today is my birthday, I will be spending most of it listening to Pink Floyd anyways, but truly a sad day for me, the band, his family and friends and of course the fans. Thanks for all the memories and may you continue to Shine on you Crazy Diamond. Will never forget the impact you had and still have on my life...
July 11, 2006
Syd

Thank you for all the music and inspiration. If it wasn't for you, Pink Floyd would never have been who they are today.

July 11, 2006
I'm a 42 year old physician. It's safe to say that no one person influenced my development more than Syd Barrett. Sounds crazy, I know. It just is was it is. I hope he finally got to Terrapin. "Terrapin", man in college I listened to that album, The Madcap Laughs, over and over. Still do. Those tunes - they're all sort of tunes, aren't they.
July 11, 2006
Shine On You Crazy Diamond..
July 11, 2006
The group would never have evolved into the band it is today without Syd Barrett. Pink Floyd became and IS the best band in the world.
July 11, 2006
Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

July 11, 2006
I can not express anything about Syd that would cover his Genius so I will just say that I was and am a HUGE fan....that I spent many a day and night enveloped in his songs....thank you so much Syd
July 11, 2006
This is such a sad, sad day for the world of music. Sid, you will be greatly missed by the millions you have touched with your music. May you find peace in eternity. Shine on, you Crazy Diamond.

And now you are free. See you one the other side oneday
July 11, 2006
It's a sad fact that Syd was without doubt a truly flawed genius.
It's also interesting that two of the most loved parts of the bands awesome repertoire are tributes to Syd, "shine on you crazy diamond" and "wish you were here"
In peace and respect.
July 11, 2006
thanks for all The Madcap Laughs
you will sadly be missed

What can you say about a man who was a founder of one of the greatest groups that ever existed? It's a shame his life didn't follow the same path as his fellow bandmates.

Finally he can rest in peace.
July 11, 2006
One of the few genuinely original talents. Irreplaceable and totally unique. This is very sad news. I guess he's finally found his "Room of musical tunes"
