Shine On, You Crazy Diamond

Pink Floyd Founder Syd Barrett dies aged 60.

You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine....

The ironic thing is that that song about Barrett will probably always be better known that Barrett's own work.
