Barrett Dies

Syd Barrett of legendary rock group Pink Floyd, has died at the age of 60, the band's spokeswoman has confirmed.

Let this be a lesson to you all. Drugs are good, then bad, then you die - So you may as well try them, at least once.


  • ...but preferably when you're old and nearly dead anyway. If I live to my eighties, that's when I'm becoming a junkie. The whole pension is going on crack. let's face it, you're going to be bored, decrepit and incontinent by then anyway. Til then I'd rather just get on with my pristine, healthy life, thanks.

  • I think in the end he was more famous for his houses than he was for his music. He lived in a Barrett Home in Arnold Lane, Cambridge, until he died.

  • I'm already there, Marie.

    That's why you'll frequently find me sitting on a bench on the edge of the village, nothing to look forward to but sniffing petrol out of an old beer can, like a modern version of a character out of a Thomas Hardy novel.

  • I'm all for a bit of everything in moderation. Enjoy yourself, but don't be stupid.

  • Sniffing petrol? I'm a scotchguard man myself.

  • Scotchguard? Vive la difference, eh Billy!?

  • Thing is, our Sydney had mental health problems anyway, so the consumption of vast quantities of acid only exacerbated his problem. It's certainly never done me any harm.
