"There is no dark side of the moon, really,

matter of fact, it's all dark." Syd Barrett, one of the founders of Pink Floyd (from the "Ummagumma', "Saucer Full of Secrets" days) is dead . I remember Barrett being a near-mythical figure among acidheads back in the late 60's/early 70's. His story was always a cautionary tale: "Don't overdo it, you don't want to end up like Syd Barrett." Shine on, you crazy diamond.
