Oona at the Desk asked me to identify an image someone posted on her blog--I said "I think that's Syd Barrett." "Weird," she mused. "Why would my friend send me that?"
Then I sat down and saw over at Seth's that Syd had passed away at age 60.
One of Cha's favorite songs is Effervescing Elephant, which I taped off a double LP set I have of Madcaps Laughs and Barrett when we first started dating. I think Dave Gilmour played all the instruments on those albums.
