Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
Musician
    (January 6, 1946-July 7, 2006)
    Birth name is Roger Keith Barrett
    One of the original members of Pink Floyd
    Recorded with Pink Floyd 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn' and 'A Saucerful of Secrets'
    Recorded as a solo artist 'The Madcap Laughs,' 'Barrett' and 'Opel'
    He did so many drugs that he made himself go crazy.
    He was fired from one of the most phenomenal bands ever.
    He named the band after his cats which were named after jazz musicians.
    His birth name is Roger, but he used to go by the name 'Syd.'
    His drug addictions got so bad that he was incapable of playing the guitar or singing during their live performances, which would lead to Roger Waters picking up the slack.
    His inability to perform live would be the basis for his ousting of the band.
    In the song 'Wish You Were Here,' Roger Waters sang: 'And did you exchange, a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?'
    Although he is still considered the most prominent member of Pink Floyd, past or present, he didn't take part in the recording of Pink Floyd's two best-selling albums 'Dark Side of the Moon' and 'The Wall.'
    He rarely plays music anymore.
    He founded the Pink Floyd.
    Some say he's the best songwriter of the last 35 years.
    Before forming Pink Floyd, he was an actor and a painter.
    After being fired, Pink Floyd's management decided to leave with him and follow his solo career, banking on him becomming a break-out star on his own.
    His firing allowed for David Gilmour's involvement with the band.
    Roger Waters and David Gilmour were big fans of his solo recordings.
    Pink Floyd dedicated the album 'Wish You Were Here' to him.
    He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Pink Floyd (1996).
