Crazy Diamond

For no reason in particular, I was thinking about Syd Barrett on Friday during my bike ride home from work. He was the psychedelic leader of Pink Floyd before they made it really big, but cracked up from the combined pressures of touring and drug abuse. (This is more than 30 years ago.)

Anyway, news came down the wire today that he is now on "Interstellar Overdrive". Which is to say, he died Friday.

Whenever a coincidence like that happens, I try to think about all the coincidences that didn't happen. But still, that's weird.

(I don't know what's with the rock music-influenced posts these days.)
