"It’s sad that these people think he’s such a wonderful subject, that he’s a living legend when, in fact, there is this poor sad man who can’t deal with life or himself. He’s got uncontrollable things in him that he can’t deal with and people think it’s a marvellous, wonderful, romantic thing. It’s just a sad, sad thing, a very nice and talented person who’s just disintegrated."
David Gilmour about Syd Barrett.

Syd Barrett’s paitings from ’60s and ’90s

"❝ We would hang around in the art department, playing guitars every lunchtime. Teaching each other basically. The thing with Syd was that his guitar wasn’t his strongest feature. His style was very stiff. I always thought I was the better guitar player. But he was very clever, very intelligent, an artist in every way. And he was a frightening talent when it came to words, and lyrics. They just used to pour out. ❞"
— David Gilmour (via saucer-full-of-syd-barrett)
"Syd one day decided the answer to Pink Floyd’s problems was to introduce two saxophonists and a girl singer.
We said ‘yeah , yeah. Good idea , Syd.’"
— Roger Waters (via liujo)
