Syd Barrett Once Said…

Roger Keith “Syd” Barrett was born on January 6, 1946 and died on July 7, 2006. Syd was an English singer, songwriter, and musician who co-founded the rock band Pink Floyd in 1965.

I do tend to take lines from other lines I like, and write around them. – Syd Barrett

I wholeheartedly understand this because I have done that myself, at least I believe I do with this writing here. I’m influenced or something sparks me or I want to talk about with what I’ve been doing for almost a full year. They are my words and I’m not necessarily moving the words around but I talk about what it says at times or what they mean to me.

I’d like to be rich. I’d like a lot of money to put into my physicals and to buy food for all my friends. – Syd Barrett

Who hasn’t thought about what it would be like to not have to struggle or to have money that you want to be able to do the things you want and get the things you want and to help your friends and family out. Who wouldn’t want to help self improve? I’ve thought about it and I’ve tried to do what I needed to in order to be able to do that.

I think it’s good is a song has more than one meaning. Maybe that kind of song can reach far more people. – Syd Barrett

This is also why I talk about different things with my writing. If I were to talk about the same thing all the time it would get pretty boring pretty quick. Also yes it brings more interest if you cover different aspects. The meaning, the tone, and how it’s presented helps who it is intended for and how to lure them in. I chose Syd for the lack of what people know about him. He was a member of Pink Floyd, one of the founders and some say he possibly was schizophrenic but I wonder if it was about the drugs. The movie the wall was loosely based on his life and life with the band. I think Syd was misunderstood and the fame got to him and he turned to drugs which could’ve made him change and become what he was like. I also know that the other members of the band have fond memories of the time they were together because of the music and movie.
