Hahaha! Very funny, Zag! People will be scraping Syd's shit for traces of his DNA! There will be an army of Syd clones. Here come the vegetable men!

Iˇve said thi before and will say it again - donˇt dare touching any of his stuff, it still belongs to him, not by law, but morally :evil: unless it was HIS will (I wouldnˇt let do such a thing even to my family, unless I wanted to do that)

Syd seemed to have a thing for customizing all of his posessions, right until the end. (He was also a great painter.) I wish I had that kind of motivation. Heck, I wish someone would take a few pictures of the interior of his house before it's emptied out. He's been an expert in the art of home decoration ever since the cover of The Madcap Laughs, and I doubt he'd mind everyone seeing his masterpiece (he certainly expected SOMEONE to; otherwise he'd just remove the door).

I actually think I acquired some photos of the inside of this house. A bad thing to have! :?

Why shouldn't his family benefit from his death like all other families do when their loved ones pass on and their immediate possesions are handed down ?
If they don't want them then why not sell them ?
Life goes on and to them, he wasn't an ex Pink Floyd member but just a brother or an uncle etc so why the ethics here should be any different to any other persons death to my mind isn't warranted.

oh yeah. the only minor difference is they?re actually selling stuff as Syd Barrett stuff. Making some profit with the name I?d say it sounds a bit bizarre.
btw, I though the royalties were/are quite pleasant. :lol:
All I am saying there?s something I just don?t quite understand :?

I take your point.
I guess it's very easy to be cynical about everything in life but i also think sometimes that we may be very quick to judge something on what it may appear to be construed as.

At the risk of sounding like a total moran, I have to ask once and for all:
