5.0 out of 5 stars Shine On You Crazy Diamond, 20 April 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pink Floyd: The Pink Floyd And Syd Barrett Story [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
For those of you that are familiar with Syd's story then you will probably already have this DVD. Everyone else that does not own this wonderful DVD should order it now!! It is basically the same as the BBC Omnibus production with some fascinating extras. Syd's story is moving, frustrating, incredulous, almost unbelievable. Here is a man who can write unique and powerful songs seemingly at will. He can paint marvelous images. He is a poet. On top of all of that he is highly intelligent, a great communicator and has the looks of Adonis. He thought of the name 'Pink Floyd' wrote virtually all their songs, played lead guitar and was the vocalist. Then just as the Floyd were on the brink of world domination, Syd stopped playing and withdrew into a world of his own. On the way to yet another gig, the Floyd forgot to stop and pick Syd up. He never played with them again. He now lives a recluse like existance in a modest semi-detached in Cambridge. This DVD tries to explain why. Very moving and, well, just brilliant.
