with many tears......what a great loss we will suffer at his passing----one of the last of a dying breed of pure artists - what now all we have left is donovan?-----it's a shame and a tragedy but look at his legacy and what he has left behind------
what a poet!!!!-----
even now I hear the words and melody "he goes up while she goes down......." in my head - words don't do justice to his talents---he is so far beyond them (words) that he no longer needed them-----
goodbye syd------I know you'll still be dancing on the rocks--no leaping!!!!
manfred---what a lovely picture......sigh!

the flick by peter whitehead was one of the most inspiring pieces of work i have seen in YEARS - it was "spellbinding" - I know Syd was going over the edge mentally at that point but his music is so other-worldly that they should have just sacrificed their tours (R. Waters) and played live or whatever to keep him in the band - they never came close again to achieving it after he left - even tho the albums are pretty damn good - just don't compare -
