Sorry, that is David Gilmour bottom right.
That's why I said, Shine on You Crazy Diamond, was a "Tribute" to Syd. I did not say that it was about Syd. Roger Waters stated that in an interview that I read some 20 years ago.
I just wanted to point out the specifics because I hear people getting it wrong many times. Not meaning you specifically. And yes this is all very old news and can be found on youtube
But like you said, fun facts for Syd fans
Here is some garbage currently offered up by iOffer
every Syd is done is the same format and this clown still can't get even close to authentic form. Which is of course a good thing.
And thanks to a member here who was asking about this site, I found this piece of crapola they have listed for sale
It's certainly been awhile posting here. Not much action in the Syd world of selling like there was quite some time ago. For some reason it seemed like a Barrett fest for selling, and now dropped off.
And then this .... the real doozy of an item
I'm adding this because it deserves to be here.
Many AML members and a few behind closed doors people think this one is authentic.
Well... there's a darn good chance it is real. I'm going to say a 99% chance legit. All signatures match well with known exemplars in my files as well as other people's files.
I'm leaving the 1% to float in the wind, because if I owned this piece, I would probably always have a slight feeling of being unsure and to trace the real background of this would prove to be long and windy path which may never be conclusive after all this time.
Recently sold for I believe approx $8000usd on the Saleroom auction site.
If this baby is real, then I believe it fetched it's rightful value.
I still don't know who Ella is/was, but I believe she must have been a friend of the band in some way or at least a groupie. One full signed item is special enough, but to have 3 is amazing.
This really is one the coolest Syd Barrett items I have ever seen come on the market.
Really a beauty! Unfortunatly not mine...
BTW: the "barrettbook" is still avaiable, at the moment for a 50% discount! So, finally I grabbed the signature edition.
Use this link: http://barrettbook.com/celebrate/
Its probably the best book ever published about Syd Barrett
