Absolutely Curtains (Everyone else is using Shine On You Crazy Diamond...)

Syd Barrett, the founding member of Pink Floyd, has died aged 60 at his Cambridgeshire home where he became a recluse 30 years ago.

The guitarist, singer and lyricist founded the band in 1965 and was one of its biggest songwriting talents in its early days.

But his behaviour became erratic during the psychedelic drug haze of the 1960s and he split with the band in 1968. He has since lived reclusively in Cambridge.
