Personal Quote:

I never felt so close to a guitar as that silver one with mirrors that I used on stage all the time. See more »

Trivia:

During the taping of the band's appearance on The Pat Boone Show (1967) in 1967, he was so stoned that he couldn't even lip-sync his own vocals, much less mime his own guitar playing (bands playing on television in those days would often mime along to their hit records). Syd instead stood, staring stone-faced at the camera. Eventually bassist Roger Waters began lip-syncing his vocals. See more »

The Crazy Diamond
