By Julian Palacios

The definitive story of Pink Floyd founding member Syd Barrett’s life and work is the product of years of extensive research and interviews with Syd’s family, friends, and fellow band members. Dark Globe traces Syd’s swift evolution from precocious young art student to acid-fuelled psychedelic rock star, and examines the myriad of musical and literary influences that he utilised in composing his hypnotic, groundbreaking songs. Syd Barrett is one of the most heavily mythologized men in rock, and Dark Globe offers a rare portrayal of this unique spirit in flight and freefall.
