Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett (1946-2006) was the very definition of a golden boy. Along with three school chums he formed what would soon become Pink Floyd, and rock and roll was never the same.But there was a dark side. Barrett, who fell in with a hardcore group of communal-living, squatter hippies, soon began ingesting vast quantities of a new drug-LSD-and his already-tenuous mental state began to unravel. Syd Barrett became perhaps rock and roll's first "acid casualty."In A Very Irregular Head, journalist Rob Chapman lifts the veil of secrecy that has surrounded the legend of Syd Barrett for decades, drawing on exclusive access to family, friends, archives, journals, letters, and artwork to create the definitive portrait of this brilliant and tragic artist.

Very Irregular Head

Chapman brings Barrett back from his early death to study his contribution to Pink Floyd before retreating into his world of depression, and his introverted hole of what to this day has been spread as madness. He argues that Barrett, though undisciplined and perhaps too true to his psychedelia, was the sort of genius that people like to keep under. It’s a tough job to convince you of Syd’s musical worth given the circumstances, but Chapman manages well. An intriguing guide to the man’s minimal output before his disappearance, for those both partial or impartial to Pink Floyd.
