A revealing investigation into the life of a reclusive cult genius. Syd Barrett was Pink Floyd's founder, singer, guitarist and principal composer, who left the group in 1968 amidst tales of acid-induced madness. Barrett's brief flash of erratic brilliance is now the stuff of rock legend, and his post-Floyd recordings have become cult classics. Revised in 2006, this book draws on years on research to relate the story of an epic rock tragedy.

Syd Barrett was an English composer and purveyor of some of the most intriguing music ever written. Famous before his twentieth birthday, Barrett led the charge of psychedelia onstage at London’s famed UFO club. With a Fender Telecaster and a primitive Binson echo unit, Barrett liberated the guitar from being, in critic Simon Reynolds’ words, ‘a riff machine, and turned it into a texture and timbre generator.’ His inspired celestial flights of improvisation, and his more structured and whimsical short songs indicated a mind of unusual inventiveness. Chief in Barrett’s mind was a Zen-like insistence on spontaneity; each performance had to be unique, and Barrett strived to push his music farther and farther out into the zone of complete abstraction. This in-depth analysis of Pink Floyd founding member Syd Barrett’s life and work is the product of years of extensive research. Lost in the Woods traces Syd’s swift evolution from precocious young art student to acid-fuelled psychedelic rock star, and examines the myriad musical and literary influences that he utilised in composing his hypnotic, groundbreaking songs. A never-forgotten casualty of the excesses, innovations, and idealism of the 1960s, Syd Barrett is one of the most heavily mythologized men in rock, and Lost in the Woods offers a rare portrayal of a unique spirit in freefall.

In celebration of the 45th anniversary of The Dark Side of the Moon, Bill Kopp explores the ingenuity with which Pink Floyd rebranded itself following the 1968 departure of Syd Barrett. Not only did the band survive Barrett’s departure, but it went on to release landmark albums that continue to influence generations of musicians and fans. Reinventing Pink Floyd follows the path taken by the remaining band members to establish a musical identity, develop a songwriting style, and create a new template for the manner in which albums are made and even enjoyed by listeners. As veteran music journalist Bill Kopp illustrates, that path was filled with failed experiments, creative blind alleys, one-off musical excursions, abortive collaborations, general restlessness, and—most importantly—a dedicated search for a distinctive musical personality. This exciting guide to the works of 1968 through 1973 highlights key innovations and musical breakthroughs of lasting influence. Kopp places Pink Floyd in its historical, cultural, and musical contexts while celebrating the test of fire that took the band from the brink of demise to enduring superstardom.

Dies ist die weltweit meistverkaufte Biografie Syd Barretts, des legendären Gründers von Pink Floyd, der nach einer nur allzu kurzen Karriere zum Idol wurde. Sie beruht auf jahrelangen Recherchen und zahlreichen Interviews mit der Familie Barrett, mit Freunden, Musikerkollegen und Journalisten. Das Buch enthält zahlreiche seltene Fotos, eine komplette Diskografie und ein Vorwort von Julian Cope. Syd Barrett, Sänger, Gitarrist und über- wiegend auch Songwriter von Pink Floyd seit ihren ersten Anfängen, verließ die Gruppe 1968 bereits nach drei Jahren. Wilde Geschichten über LSD-bedingten Wahn machten sogleich die Runde und wurden durch Barretts Rückzug in ein Leben in Abgeschiedenheit noch weiter angeheizt. Er trat nicht mehr auf, veröffent- lichte aber zwei Soloalben, die zu Kult- klassikern wurden, und noch jahrzehnte- lang beschäftigte sich die Musikpresse immer wieder mit der Frage 'Wo ist Syd?' Fans und Musikerkollegen sind sich darin einig, dass Syd Barrett einer der großen Pioniere des britischen Rock 'n' Pop gewesen ist. Der Song Shine On You Crazy Diamond ist eine Hommage seiner früheren Pink-Floyd-Kollegen an Barrett, der seine künstlerische Genialität stets kompromisslos ausleben wollte. Der Konformitätsdruck des Marktes jedoch stellte sich ebenso schlagartig ein wie der Erfolg beim Publikum. All dem war der 'Crazy Diamond' nicht gewachsen, und der zunehmende Drogenkonsum tat sein Übriges; der unvermeidliche Zusammen- bruch beendete die kurze Karriere des brillanten Musikers, der schon zu Lebzeiten eine Legende war. 'Eine akribisch genaue, eindringliche Darstellung von Syd Barretts Aufstieg, Fall und Einsamkeit. Syds Geschichte wird mit Sympathie und Verständnis erzählt.' (VOX)

Syd Barrett was the lead guitarist, vocalist, and principle songwriter in the original line up of Pink Floyd. During his brief time with the band (1966-68) he was the driving force behind the unit. After he left the band he made just two further solo albums which were both released in 1970, before withdrawing from public view to lead a quiet, and occasionally troubled life in Cambridge, the town of his birth. Rob Chapman's book is the first authoritative and exhaustively researched biography of Syd Barrett that fully celebrates his life and legacy as a musician, lyricist and artist, and which highlights the influence that he continues to have over contemporary bands and music fans alike.

“I don't think I'm easy to talk about. I've got a very irregular head. And I'm not anything that you think I am anyway.”—Syd Barrett’s last interview, Rolling Stone, 1971 Roger Keith “Syd” Barrett (1946–2006) was, by all accounts, the very definition of a golden boy. Blessed with good looks and a natural aptitude for painting and music, he was a charismatic, elfin child beloved by all, who fast became a teenage leader in Cambridge, England, where a burgeoning bohemian scene was flourishing in the early 1960s. Along with three friends and collaborators—Roger Waters, Richard Wright, and Nick Mason—he formed what would soon become Pink Floyd, and rock ’n’ roll was never the same. Starting as a typical British cover band aping approximations of American rhythm ’n’ blues, they soon pioneered an entirely new sound, and British psychedelic rock was born. With early, trippy, Barrett-penned pop hits such as “Arnold Layne” (about a clothesline-thieving cross-dresser) and “See Emily Play” (written specifically for the epochal “Games For May” concert), Pink Floyd, with Syd Barrett as their main creative visionary, captured the zeitgeist of “Swinging” London in all its Technicolor glory. But there was a dark side to all this new-found freedom. Barrett, like so many around him, began ingesting large quantities of a revolutionary new drug, LSD, and his already-fragile mental state—coupled with a personality inherently unsuited to the life of a pop star—began to unravel. The once bright-eyed lad was quickly replaced, seemingly overnight, by a glowering, sinister, dead-eyed shadow of his former self, given to erratic, highly eccentric, reclusive, and sometimes violent behavior. Inevitably sacked from the band, Barrett retreated from London to his mother’s house in Cambridge, where he would remain until his death, only rarely seen or heard, further fueling the mystery. In the meantime, Pink Floyd emerged from the underground to become one of the biggest international rock bands of all time, releasing multi-platinum albums, many that dealt thematically with the loss of their friend Syd Barrett: The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall are all, on many levels, about him. In A Very Irregular Head, journalist Rob Chapman lifts the veil of secrecy that has surrounded the legend of Syd Barrett for nearly four decades, drawing on exclusive access to family, friends, archives, journals, letters, and artwork to create the definitive portrait of a brilliant and tragic artist. Besides capturing all the promise of Barrett’s youthful years, Chapman challenges the oft-held notion that Barrett was a hopelessly lost recluse in his later years, and creates a portrait of a true British eccentric who is rightfully placed within a rich literary lineage that stretches through Kenneth Graham, Hilaire Belloc, Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, John Lennon, David Bowie, and on up to the pioneers of Britpop. A tragic, affectionate, and compelling portrait of a singular artist, A Very Irregular Head will stand as the authoritative word on this very English genius for years to come.

Dieser Inhalt ist eine Zusammensetzung von Artikeln aus der frei verfugbaren Wikipedia-Enzyklopadie. Seiten: 23. Kapitel: Pink Floyd/Diskografie, David Gilmour, Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, Nick Mason, Jon Carin, Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii, Norman Smith, Bob Klose. Auszug: Pink Floyd ist eine 1964 gegrundete britische Rockband. Mit ihrer Musik und der klanglichen und visuellen Gestaltung ihrer Platten und Buhnenauftritte schuf sie, begleitet von grossem kommerziellen Erfolg, einen unverwechselbaren und vollig neuartigen Stil. Weltweit wurden mehr als 300 Millionen Alben von Pink Floyd verkauft. Unter der Regie des Sangers und Gitarristen Syd Barrett gehorte die Band zunachst zur britischen Psychedelic-Rock-Bewegung. Nach dem drogenbedingten Ausstieg des Frontmanns entwickelten die verbleibenden Mitglieder einen eigenstandigen Stil mit Einflussen aus Progressive Rock, Blues, Jazz und klassischer Musik. Nach einem letzten gemeinsamen Auftritt im Jahr 2005 und dem Tod des Keyboarders Richard Wright 2008 sind zukunftige Aktivitaten der verbliebenen Mitglieder David Gilmour und Nick Mason als Pink Floyd weitgehend unwahrscheinlich. Das letzte Studioalbum der Band mit begleitender Tour wurde bereits 1994 veroffentlicht. Die Wurzeln der Band gehen zuruck auf die Schulzeit von Syd Barrett, Roger Waters und David Gilmour in Cambridge. Barrett und Waters besuchten das Hills Road Sixth Form College, Gilmour die Perse School in derselben Strasse. Barrett und Gilmour trafen sich in den Mittagspausen zum Gitarrespielen und gaben vereinzelt Strassenkonzerte. Zu einer Bandgrundung kam es allerdings noch nicht. 1963 ging Barrett nach London. Gilmour grundete die Band Joker's Wild und zog ab 1966 mit einer weiteren Band relativ erfolglos durch Spanien und Frankreich. 1964 kam Roger Waters nach London und lernte bei seinem Architekturstudium an der Polytechnischen Hochschule Nick Mason und Rick Wright kennen. Sie grundeten die Cover-Band Sigma 6 und

Ein meisterhafter Roman über Pink Floyd, eine der einflussreichsten Rockgruppen der Welt Syd Barrett – ein Engel, ein Dämon, ein Poet – war das Genie, das die Gruppe Pink Floyd so stark prägte, dass er heute noch als ihr Geist gilt. Er ging mit Roger Waters in Cambridge zur Schule, spielte schon damals in mehreren Bands, zeichnete hervorragend, schrieb, komponierte und litt schon früh an psychischen Störungen. Seine Experimente mit Drogen verursachten 1968 einen schizophrenen Schub, von dem er sich nie wieder erholte. Pink Floyd hielten immer Kontakt zu ihm, widmeten ihm die Songs »Wish You Were Here« und »Shine on You Crazy Diamond«. In einem Kaleidoskop der Erinnerungen lässt Mari Tourmanager, Bandmitglieder, Bühnenarbeiter, aber auch die Regisseure Antonioni und Kubrick von Syd Barrets Welt, von seinem Charme, seinen Ideen und der Faszination, die er seit seiner Jugend auf alle ausübte, erzählen. Ein ergreifender Roman über Poesie, Kunst, Genie und Wahnsinn.
