The Madcap Expires
I really dislike post-Syd Barrett Pink Floyd, but Syd himself is another story - a lot of his work has been weirdly wonderful, and has profoundly influenced a couple of generations of charmingly countercultural artists (Robyn Hitchcock, anybody?). Tragically, Syd Barrett is dead from complications related to diabetes at the age of 60.
