New York times website, 21 Dec. 2012: in obituary published July 12, 2006 (Roger Keith Barrett; born Jan. 6, 1946, Cambridge, England; died July 7, 2006, Cambridgeshire, England, aged 60; Syd Barrett, the erratically brilliant songwriter and singer who created the psychedelic rock of Pink Floyd only to leave the band in 1968 with mental problems, died on July 7 at his home in Cambridgeshire, England. For someone with such a brief career, Mr. Barrett has never been forgotten. Indie-rockers have long tried to emulate his twisted craftsmanship.)
