Originally Pink Floyd's founder, singer, guitarist, and principal composer, Syd Barrett left the group in 1968 amid wild tales of acid induced madness. He made two solo albums which became cult classics and then disappeared, only to become the subject of countless “Where's Syd?” investigations. Crazy Diamond draws on years of research and numerous interviews with Barrett's family and associates to relate a rock tragedy of epic proportions. This new edition of the book has been updated following Barrett's death in 2006. Includes many rare photographs, a full discography, and a foreword by Julian Cope.
