Syd Barrett was not a mad-man...infact he was one of the most talented, beautifull minds of the 20th century. just because you cant understand someone, doesnt make them crazy.

I can assure you I meant nothing pejorative in my use of the term 'madman'. In this context it's the exact opposite of an insult. All geniuses are, to some degree, crazy. He's one, but that doesn't make him any less of a genius for it.
