Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd

Photography by Barrie Wentzell

Syd looked a lot better than the last time I photographed him when he locked us in a small room and seemed to be suffering with a paranoia that “THEY were out to get me!” “Who are THEY?” I asked. I never did find out. Syd was less crazy in this picture and he’d had his hair cut short, he was planing a tour but it never happened. So sad to see all that talent eclipsed by who knows what, but at least we have his magical/maniacal music to play if ever we think we’ve hit zero.
