You're being Syd Barrett wrong. For starters a lot of the material Syd ever recorded was in demo form conceived in a short time of creative energy before Syd started getting heavily into acid.
Stop being an idiot, Syd should be respected for his music, you're respecting him for his massive drug use and mental break down. Do you really want to be Syd? Ever hear of his "lost weekend". Syd had been acting more erratic for some time, then one weekend disappeared for 3 days, then came back. As Roger said "Syd always had a sparkle in his eye, he was also very friendly and charismatic, then he came back that Monday, and it was gone, and it never came back."
For the record this is what he looked like at the end of it
Those eyes say it all, that's a 1,000 yard state if I've ever seen one. There is no life left in those.
