Born: January 6, 1946, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England

Died: July 7, 2006, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England

A key figure in the development of London's underground music scene during the late 1960s and -- despite his rather brief period of activity -- a continuing influence on popular (and unpopular) music onward into the 21st century, Syd Barrett also has the unfortunate distinction of being one of rock music's early drug casualties. His combined talents for eccentric pop songwriting and bold sonic exploration insured his rapid rise to fame and enduring legacy, but the equally rapid decent into chemically-induced mental illness sadly leaves us with the never-to-be-answered question of what Barrett would have accomplished had circumstances allowed him to achieve his full potential as a musician.
