Sad day... :cry: :cry: :cry:

Shine On Syd!

Thank you for your wonderful music and thank you for introducing us to such a wonderful band Pink Floyd.

No words....Syd had a sad life.

It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here
And I'm most obliged to you for making it clear
That I'm not here.

RIP

Only just saw it on the news on the TV. As they say: "I hope he found the peace of mind and the rest he must have seeked for most of his life." This is a sad, sad day indeed. I wonder what caused his untimely death.... :(

Diabetes-related complications. In the last years of his life, he went in and out of the hospital because of that :(

Thank you for the info. The news snippet here on the TV News was very short.

'Tis true, my form is something odd
but blaming me, is blaming God,
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

If I could reach from pole to pole
or grasp the ocean with a span,
I would be measured by the soul
The mind's the standard of the Man.

Syd be in Heaven for sure! His Shining light was foretold to him when he wished to join the Way of the Ascended Masters and was told he had to stay with his Music!!

He has shone so brightly for Millions of people for 1/50 of the elapsed time since Jesus Walked!!

Truly we have all been blessed!

I, like everyone else, am very saddened by this.
Syd is not very well known here in the US and I am doing what I can to spread the word a little.

I really love you and I mean you
the star above you, crystal blue
Well, oh baby, my hairs on end about you...
I wouldn't see you and I love to
I fly above you, yes I do
well, oh baby, my hairs on end about you...

Floating, bumping, noses dodge a tooth
the fins a luminous
fangs all 'round the clown
is dark below the boulders hiding all
the sunlight's good for us
'Cause we're the fishes and all we do
the move about is all we do
well, oh baby, my hairs on end about you...

Wherever you are Syd, i hope the folks there will appreciate your unique gift as much as we do here.

Without Syd there may have been no PF and when i think about how their music has been with me through so many aspects of my life, from good to bloody awful, i have to say thank you Syd.

Nobody knows where you are
How near or how far
Shine on You Crazy Diamond

Rest In Peace Syd
