On July 7, 1946, Syd Barrett was born in Cambridge, his city of death 60 years later.

The first leader of Pink Floyd who signed almost all the credits of their first album, The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn in 1967, also being their lead singer and guitarist.

This is the promotional video for Jugband Blues, their only appearance on the 1968 second album, A Saucerful Of Secrets, only to be replaced by David Gilmour months later.

Although in later years his former bandmates Roger Waters, Rick Wright and especially David Gilmour tried to enhance his solo career, it was not possible due to his mental problems, leading to his final retirement to the hometown of him until his death.

Shine On, Crazy Diamond!!
