Well, I've just discovered something. :C
On the 6th of July, Paul met John in 1957

on the 7th of July, Syd Barrett died in 2006

Why does some things have to be this sad. :C

No need to thank me, kind citizen. I'm just doing my duty.

I've got a bike
You can ride it if you like
It's got a basket
A bell that rings
And things to make it look good
I'd give it to you if I could
But I borrowed it

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Not really, other than his very early work with Pink Floyd. As a matter of fact, I was surprised to read that he passed away in 2006 - I thought he had died much sooner than that.

I was into Pink Floyd up to and including the Animals album. I started losing interest at about the time The Wall came out and really did not pay attention to any of their stuff after that. I'm sure there was great music on those remaining albums, but it wasn't the same Pink Floyd sound that I was used to. I can't really put my finger on it, it just wasn't the same to me.

You aren't missing much by ignoring post-70s Floyd, Zig! (As for solo Syd - well, he's interesting and eccentric but I find his tunes often too scattered for my personal listening-often pleasure. Certainly worth hearing, though I'll still take his Pink Floyd stuff over anything.)

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

That one about the octopus was good. I quite like Syd's stuff but only in small doses.

*blows thick wreaths of dust off of thread*

As per @sir walter raleigh's suggestion, I am undertaking a Syd Barrett marathon. It's not going to be a very long one since he only released two albums, but Syd's stuff is quite potent enough to feel like a lot more than it is. I usually take Barrett in small doses. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

Anyway, his music always very springlike to me, which suits the current weather perfectly. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Unless you want to throw Opel on the end to make three. However that is bonus material that isn’t for the faint of heart. 

His songwriting style is so unique in how it can be so grand and celestial, yet so spooky at the same time.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15 Listening now. I've heard the title track before.
