Syd Barrett Wish You Were Here Sessions

This is the time when Syd Barrett turned up at Abbey Road Studios in London when Pink Floyd were in there recording Wish You Were Here. Nobody recognised him until suddenly it clicked. He had turned up to record his guitar parts but he hadn't been in the band for some years at this point.

    Wonder what was going through Syd's mind at the time, obviously thinking he was still in the band after all those years. Poor guy, also must have been heartbreaking for the others to see him like that.

    Shine on Syd, you crazy diamond.

    I'd almost guarantee he didn't just "show up" or "wander in". Someone likely called him and said the Floyd was recording, they weren't sure where Syd was, could use his guitar on some tracks and asked him to hop over to Abbey Road to lay them on. When he asked "When do I put my guitar on?" one of them (Rick, I think) said something to the effect of the guitar being all done. How on earth could he have just wandered into the studio without flashing some credentials? Someone knew he was coming and he was allowed in by someone that recognised him.

    You should not show this photo as the front photo of Syd’s. He was beautiful, dismay him thus so.
    This picture, taken by his former bandmates, not his friends, shows the result of their work. Congratulations. Syd was a difficult case, not more than Brian Wilson. He o my needed a little help from his friends. And definitely not to be ousted of his own band. Guilt is a heavy burden, the more the better person you are. I’m sorry for Rick, he was the most sensible of the four. Then David and finally Waters ( bad man) and Mason (simple man).
