This is the first biography of Syd Barrett, the legendary founder of Pink Floyd, who left the band in mysterious circumstances after the first album. Amid stories of his acid-induced madness he made two solo albums and then retired from music in 1970. This book aims to clear up the mystery.

I will tell you that the book begins with Syd's early years then rather quickly moves on to his intro to the other founding members of "The Pink Floyd Sound" as they were initially called. It continues from his early writing and success "The Piper At The Gates of Dawn", to his extremes and expulsion from the band, his self inposed seclusion, and finally, his early demise.
Recommended for die-hard Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd fans! Although the casual Floyd reader may enjoy it also!
