Syd Barrett was an art-school student when he founded Pink Floyd. Famous before his twentieth birthday, Barrett led the charge of psychedelia onstage at London's famed UFO club, and his acid-inspired lyrics became a hallmark of the city's 1967 Summer of Love. By turns improvisatory and whimsical, Zen-like and hard-living, Barrett pushed the boundaries of music into new realms of artistic expression while fighting inner demons. This probing study and comprehensive biography, ten years in the writing, features a wealth of interviews with Syd's family, intimates, friends, and band members, giving us an unvarnished look at Barrett's life and work. Author Julian Palacios authoritatively traces Barrett's swift evolution from precocious youth to psychedelic rock star, examining both his wide-ranging inspirations and his influence on generations of musicians, and presenting a comprehensive overview of his musical, artistic and literary influences. A never-to-be-forgotten casualty of the excess, innovation, and idealism of the 1960s, Syd Barrett channelled the gestalt of the era, and is one of the most heavily mythologized men in rock. Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd: Dark Globe offers a rare portrayal of this unique spirit in flight and freefall.
