Goodbye Syd Barrett... :(

This morning when I drove my car to work, suddenly I heard a shocking and bad news from radio said that Syd Barrett has passed away!!! At 1st I can't believe it... I thought the DJs were kidding because they like to joke early morning show. Then I heard their voice also sound gloomy... I shouted in my heart... SHIT!!! After that they played a song by (Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here) on air... this song was specially written by Pink Floyd to dedicate Syd after he left the band. I was holding my tears so bad when listen to it... this song really touching.

I remember last year at Live8... Pink Floyd reunion to perform on the concert, when they play 'Wish You Were Here'... Roger Waters stand front and said... "It's actually quite emotional, standing up here with these three guys after all these years. Standing to be counted with the rest of you. Anyway, we're doing this for everyone who's not here, particularly, of course for Syd." Well... that was the most touching moment for everyone.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond... Syd. His death is a major loss to the music community. Whitout you, there is no Pink Floyd... without Pink Floyd, there is no great music in this planet... without music, there is no more life to me.

....and I am not
frightened of dying, any time will do,
I dont mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
Theres no reason for it, youve gotta go sometime.
I never said I was frightened of dying....

- The Great Gig In The Sky - Pink Floyd -

Shine On You Crazy Diamond... by Pink Floyd

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught in the cross fire of childhood and stardom,
blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger,
you legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter,
you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Nobody knows where you are
How near or How Far
Shine on You crazy Diamond

How more many more layers
Will there be drawn in you there
Shine on You crazy in Diamond

And we'll bask in the shadow
Of Yesterday's triumph
Sail on the steel breeze
Come on you butcher, you winner and loser, you miner of truth and delusion
And shine!

Thank you Syd... Goodbye Syd...
