By an eerie coincidence, a friend and I were whizzing through the countryside singing along to Piper at the Gates of Dawn yesterday.

And now Syd's just a wind in the willows.

I admired the fact that Syd was constitutionally incapable of accomodating or bending to The Machine.

I'll be out on the deck today, listening to his two solo albums. Unlike his material with Pink Floyd, the solo stuff hasn't aged or dated one bit. It's completely insane, recorded from the edge, and some of the best stuff I've ever heard in my life.
