Pink Floyd Icon Syd Barrett To Be Focus Of Cambridge Live Event (Week in Review)
It'll be unveiled in 2016 to mark the 10th anniversary of Barrett's death and also the 70th anniversary of his birth. Roger Keith 'Syd' Barrett co-founded Pink Floyd in 1965 along with Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright.
He left the band in 1968 and embarked on a solo career. He died of pancreatic cancer on July 7, 2006, at his home in Cambridge. Syd's sister Rosemary Breen says: "We welcome this opportunity to commemorate Roger. He was bright, funny, quirky and witty and was an artist not just in terms of 'music' or 'paintings' but in a much wider sense. We look forward to working with Cambridge Live to create a lasting memory of an inspiring man." Read more - here.
