Looks like Syd has an official site now. I think it went live in the last few days.

Interesting too that the site is © 2008 One Fifteen Limited. David Gilmour/Pink Floyd's management company these days.

Indeed. Perhaps they have taken over managing Barrett's business estate. I wonder who managed it before?

the biography is pretty classy, explaining why Syds music is significant without once mentioning the words drugs or insanity
and the art gallery is nice too, its a shame he destroyed so many of his paintings once he was done with them
I notice however in the discography they dont list the Tonight Lets All Make Love in London soundtrack, perhaps because its on a different record label?
I think that one is the best example of the long improvisational soundscapes that are being described in the biography

Is Gilmour a good friend or what??? He knows true talent when he sees it!! Ask my friends in Tel-Aviv!!

I did a news story on it.

I asked Pink Floyd's manager when it went live and he said yesterday.

It's a nice site actually. Like J Ed said, it's good that the site is emphasising his talent rather than the more tabloid friendly drugs/insanity/life after PF part. I think the artistic part of Syd's life has been forgotten to a certain extent. I hope they've got photos of the paintings he destroyed - I'd like to see more of them.
