    Syd Barrett, original singer and creator for Pink Floyd.

    Had some mental problems and was not able to continue with the band so I guess you could say he quit

    "everytime I went on stage in-front of people, I was shaking in my boots, it was never a pleasurable experience for me"

    "The New Radicals"

    Period



    Unlike any other group that broke up to soon, these guys, mainly Gregg Alexander, stopped dead in their tracks after one c.d. and two singles! This isn't just any c.d. for me! "Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too...." is locked in my top five c.d.s of all time. Every second of sound, every lyric, every aspect of style, inspired AND original is GENIUS to me. POP PERFECTION in my opinion.

    Now the negative is I want to kick this guys **s for being such a tease!

    Gregg Alexander


    Get out of songwriting and make another c.d. or I'll hire a stealthy MF ninja to kidnap you so I can knock some sense into you! Any ninjas here? Price is not an issue!

    Perhaps the secret of life is to wake up from it!~Paco Estrada

    Can a get a hallelujah. He had it together enough to put out two brilliant (by my standards anyway) solo albums. The Madcap Laughs, and an even more polished Barrett after that. Barrett is crammed full of great songs like "Effervescing Elephant," "Baby Lemonade," and "Wolf Pack," and practically invented modern indie rock.

    the artists on that list that would normally bother me are Mike Nesmith, John Lennon and Brian Wilson, but since they went on to make even better music, if only briefly, after quitting their day jobs, I'll forgive them.

    Brian did come back into the fold later, by the way. And if it weren't for dropping out of touring, I'm sure we wouldn't have Pet Sounds and the brilliant wreckage of Smile to enjoy today.

    Dead from Mayhem. He tried to bleed to death by slicing his veins but it was too cold outside and blood wouldn't pour as he wanted it to, so he quit the music business and this world by blowing his brains out with a shotgun.

    Well, now that you say that, it's about time to bring up Kurt Cobain.
