He's got a bike, you can ride it if you like. It's got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good. He'd give it to you if he could, but he borrowed it.

I have one on my other computer saved from my senior year in high school that's seven pages. When is it due? I'd have to wait until I get a new keyboard for that computer, but I'll e-mail it to you if you want. I got an A on it.

try some rhetoric, spicing it up, saying sentences and pages without saying anything at all.

It's what politicians and English Teachers do.

In all seriousness, I'm guessing his drug use, especially LSD, brought out some hidden mental problems. Maybe schizophrenia.

So what're you gonna cite as your sources?

"I asked the Pit @ Ultimate-Guitar.com"

"Additionally, Jack Off Jill sent me his paper"

Nah, use my real name, Jack Off Jill doesn't seem like a reliable source.

Actually, my ex-girlfriend DID use me as a source for a project she had to do once. She even put me on her Citation sheet. She got an A. It was awesome. She also got me to come in and give an example of Delta Blues in her music class.

God... Our school sucked..

Anyway, like I said, I have to wait until I can get a new keyboard for the computer it's saved to. The dogs chewed up the wire to the keyboard.. There's four computers here, but two of them are laptops, and the computer that has a working keyboard is currently being used.

Maybe, I'd have to wait til my room mate leaves so I can switch keyboards. The main problem is that I currently have no money to go BUY a new keyboard. Which, is gonna suck for me when the owner of said keyboard gets home.

Ok,I only know a little but He was the founding of pink floyd who was forced to leave due to schizopherema(cant spell it)caused by LSD usage almost constantly.While with the band he relased 1 album Piper at the gates of dawn which had some success.Their 1st single was called arnord lange and didnt get much notice like their 2nd see emily play,but this got them onto top of the pops,although syd didnt want to do it and said!If john lennon dosent have to do it why should I"
Syd was living in london at the time and the other band memberrs said that in his flat
you sholud not even accept a glass of water for there was a good chance it had acid in it.His best known works are astronomy domine,bike and Interstellar overdrive all taken from piper at...In 1968 he left the band to relase The madcap laughs and opel as solo album.
Well you can find more on wikipedia but theres a start.

The cover of his Madcap Laughs album inspired the colour scheme for my room.

Burgundy and gold.

Now that's good essay.

Did you read Inside Out? Lots of what you said are direct quotes from the book. Anyway, Syd was born Roger Keith Barret and grew up in Cambridge I believe. His friends were huge rolling stones fans but he proffered the Beatles, and his parents let his early bands practice in their living room which was advanced parenting for the time. Syd joined the band to replace Bob Klose (I think) on guitar and vocals. At this point, the band was called "Tea Set" and were a huge part of the London Psychedelic movement. They mostly played at a club called UFO (pronounced u-fo) which stood for Underground Freak-out where most of the underground movement took place. The group at this point was entering band competitions and were on the same bill as another "Tea Set" so Syd came up with the name "Pink Floyd" on the spot (based off of the blues guitarists Floyd Council and Pink Anderson). The band then signed with EMI and gained popularity with singles such as "Arnold Layne", "See Emily Play" and "Point Me to the Sky". They then released "Piper at the Gates of Dawn" which was mostly written by Syd. He then grew more and more mentally unstable due to the stress of constant gigging and abusing LSD. Then David Gilmour joined the group and for a short time, Pink Floyd was a five peice. Syd was growing more and more frustrated and wrote a song called "Have You Got it yet?" and no matter what the band would somehow play it wrong. They released their second album, "A Saucerful of Secrets" where only one track is written by Syd (Jugband Blues). EMI then went through negotiations as to Syd's contract as he could not be in the band anymore (His solution was to add two girl saxophonists to the lineup). Syd then left the band and released "The Madcap Laughs" and "Barret". During the recordings of "Wish You Were Here" Syd arrived unannounced at Abbey Road and was totally unrecognizable. He listened to part of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" and when asked to play it again he said there was no sense in that because they just heard it. when asked about his life he said "Well, I've got a telly and a fridge full of pork chops, but the chops keep going off so I have to buy more". Syd lived a quiet life in cambridge until his death last summer.

I hope I helped, anyway, read Inside Out bu Nick Mason for details.

What was that quote, I think I read it in a sig here, something with "outsydbarreted Syd Barret in being insane", that's so funny.
all the world's indeed a stage and we are merely players

You have successfully repeated what Roger Waters says in every documentary including Pink Floyd and/or Syd Barrett and claimed they were your own words! I hate you.
