  • Syd Barrett

      Syd Barrett was an English singer, songwriter and musician, who is best known as the original lead vocalist, guitarist, and principal songwriter of the rock band Pink Floyd. He was born Roger Keith Barrett on January 6, 1946, in Cambridge, England. He played an important role in the early development of Pink Floyd and was the main creative force behind the band's first album, "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn" (1967).

      Syd Barrett's last album with Pink Floyd was their debut album, "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn" which was released in August 1967. The album was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, and features Barrett as the main songwriter and vocalist, with Roger Waters, Richard Wright, Nick Mason and himself as band members. The album received generally positive reviews and helped establish Pink Floyd as an important band in the emerging psychedelic rock scene of the late 1960s.

      After the album's release, Syd Barrett's behavior and commitment to the band became increasingly erratic due to his heavy use of psychedelic drugs, particularly LSD. As a result, he was eventually replaced by David Gilmour as the band's lead vocalist and guitarist in 1968, and did not participate in the recording of any further Pink Floyd albums.
