Syd Barrett is dead.

I am so sad, I can't believe he is gone.

Those who know me well probably immediately thought of me when they heard or will hear the news, because he played such a huge part in my life growing up. A big, obsessively large part of my life. Thank you for those of you who have emailed me your condolences.

I don't know what to say, I think I'm kind of in shock about it. He is still such a big source of inspiration to me and I feel like there is a little empty spot in my heart now that he is gone.

I tried sharing his music with a lot of people but I don't think a lot of people really understood it, or understood what it meant to me.

There will probably be the usual media junk and a brief resurgence of interest in him, but it will probably just kind of piss me off rather than get any warm fuzzies about it. It's like when a lonely person dies and afterwards everybody toasts them and brags about "Oh, we were such good friends - they were such a good person" and crap like that.

Now I'm rambling. I just felt that I should say something, I guess.
