‘He would see and hear things no one else ever did,’ remembered Rosemary. ‘Colours were the thing. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he had a condition like synaesthesia because a sound was a colour to him.’

‘Syd was one of the spearheads, and main inspirational figures of the sixties’ so-called psychedelic movement,’ asserts Pete Brown. ‘Undoubtedly one of two or three people who widened English lyric writing. He made it possible for English people to write about being English, briefly. I have a strong image of him as a terrific performer. Barrett was incredibly charismatic on-stage. He became a hero very fast, moving into uncharted territory.’
