Daily Deviation

Given 2006-10-21
For me one of the greatest tragedies in rock and roll history was Syd Barrett. In this homage to the late singer/songwriter/guitarist, artistic-engine uses a gritty mix of mediums and style to convey perhaps a tortured soul embarking down a long lost highway of mental illness from where there would be no return. Maybe you disagree with the insertion and placement of the 'dark side of the moon' design, but as for myself I found it appropriate since the memory, artistic spirit and influence of Syd Barrett never left the collective hearts and minds and music of the surviving members of Pink Floyd.

It's a nice picture... But Syd didn't write DSOTM. That was a Roger album...

He didn't write it, but it might have been about him... right?

I think I heard in an interview that Brain Damage towards the end was Syd inspired. It would seem very fitting as well.

It's a goddamn shame I wasn't on this site when this piece was awarded its well-earned Daily Deviation. This is a fucking masterpiece.
