Syd Barrett was always this mystic person, especially after he dropped the name and went living back to his mother or sister or wherever. I remember reading how fans bothered him year after year and he didn't want anything to do with them. He was into gardening, biking and long walks. Extraordinary guy.
I've always found it weird how he didn't want to be associated with his past. I love The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and some of his solo songs but musically he could never compete with Waters or Gilmour.
