Shine on you Crazy Diamond.

Treat others how you would like to be treated.

Shine On, indeed.

I wonder how the rest of the band members are feeling. A sad day.

Terrible news.

Very sad.

Well we all shine on--like the moon and the stars and the sun.

Really sad news :cry: . I hope he found the peace he always wanted in the latter days of his life. A tragic end to a tragic life and I was glad to hear that the other members of the group took good care of him financially after he left the group. He was and always will be the classic definition of a troubled genius and he will always be remembered.

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.

Rest In Peace Syd.

I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.
It was them that turned me to drink.

The day he died Roger Waters played in Holland with his solo act. From what I've heared 'wish you were here'was quite the moment that night.

Getting close to the one year anniversary. Me and a couple of friends are going to jam on Wish You Were Here and Shine On You Crazy Diamond for Syd.

We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond

I was surprised to see this topic bumped from last year.

R.I.P Syd. Shine on, always.

Hopefully Floyd Inc. does something for the 40th Anniversary of Piper at the Gates of Dawn.
