He died very peacefully a couple of days ago," the band's spokeswoman said. "There will be a private family funeral."
Long live rock and roll.
He lived with his mother. He was getting a "pension" from Floyd. None of the music he worked on with Floyd was a huge hit. They ditched him right before they got big, he was holding them back because he was un-stable. The band has been supporting him all along, not because they had too, because they felt a sense of duty.

Here's another one written by Syd Barrett, from Saucerful of Secrets..
It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here
And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear
That I'm not here.
And I never knew the moon could be so big
And I never knew the moon could be so blue
And I'm grateful that you threw away my old shoes
And brought me here instead dressed in red
And I'm wondering who could be writing this song.
I don't care if the sun don't shine
And I don't care if nothing is mine
And I don't care if I'm nervous with you
I'll do my loving in the winter.
And the sea isn't green
And I love the queen
And what exactly is a dream
And what exactly is a joke.
Syd will always have a special place in my heart and mind......
