Photographer's Note

Six months after his departure for heaven
Syd lives in our hearts with his songs and
his poems. Today its his birthday, born
in Cambridge on January 6th in 1946.
One more picture dedicated to Roger Syd Barrett,
one more bike for Syd


Wouldn't you miss me?

Oh where are you now
pussy willow that smiled on this leaf?
When I was alone you promised the stone from your heart
my head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
please, please, lift a hand
I'm only a person whose armbands beat
on his hands, hang tall
won't you miss me?
Wouldn't you miss me at all?

The poppy birds way
swing twigs coffee brands around
brandish her wand with a feathery tongue
my head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
please, please, please lift the hand
I'm only a person with Eskimo chain
I tattooed my brain all the way...
Won't you miss me?
Wouldn't you miss me at all?


Syd Barrett on his first album, Madcap Laughs, 1970


We miss you Syd,
Shine on you Crazy Diamond wherever you are
