    ^^^What is your favorite, solo, Syd Barrett song? I am quite partial to "Lets Roll Another One" and "Whined and Dined".
  2. If It's In You is my fav Syd solo song. I love the vocals on that.

  3. 'Here I Am' and 'Dark Globe'. I love 'Octopus' and 'Opel', too. Syd was a genius. R.I.P.

    Wow, I wish I'd'a caught that one. Too bad I'm in The States. Octupus is a great song.

    Skop's Very old member, but young

    Wawing my arms in the air is maybe my favourite song. It's a very beautiful lyric.

    I love the solo Syd's Song, Terrapin, Love song, Octopus, Feel, Birdie hop and more.

    Syd were a genius, my best musician

    Yeah tis a great song, but its not solo it was recorded with Pink Floyd but it was decided afterwards it was too odd of a song for them to release.
  15. i have a hippy guru who shows me music, i always liked flyod, i just saw a vh1 doc on syd, and it said vegatable man was flyod but when i downloaded it it said it was just syd, ive only heard that and terrapin, but if anyone know the name of the song he was singin when he walked off stage that night he played live 4 the last time please pm me what the name is i was drunk and forgot the lyrics so i cant find it didnt he have a band on it?

    Right now my favorite is "Octopus", but I probably haven't heard all of his solo stuff. So it might change :)
