Of course what if Syd did carry on with the band but just got further and further from success? To even get dropped from Harvest Records. In the early 70's...
Things weren't like that. But here's another, Syd carries on with Floyd but Syd's influence on other musicians outside Floyd diminished? To the extent he becomes as know as Phil Collins level. Immensely talent musician, but really naff instead of "cool" to admit Syd liked?

Still as everything awaits for all of us equally , Syd was just a person who was very easier to be taught and therefore he was even later confronted to entire world by his bandmates as mentally unstable person …

Here is some interesting part in C.C books that confirm same thing Syd have saw :

I think you're projecting a lot of ideas onto the public's perception of Syd Barrett that has absolutely nothing to do with his creative output or his personal beliefs. In his last few professional interviews in 1971, all he was interested in was playing the blues and writing pop songs, and maybe even getting a day job.

I donot know about those interviews and honestly I donot care to much about … I think Syd was opt to much more heavier task then just being a pop star … He already prove to be better then most of us and even being alike did not made him to see everything at all… Speaking about something other’ just look to PF catalogue from Piper and songs like Mathilda mother or Lucifer Sam until the bare ending of Wall and you will see it just scream about them …
