Syd Barrett: A Very Irregular Head by Rob Chapman

Here lies a biography that Syd deserves. Insightful, intelligent and sensitive.

A must read for Syd fans – the author Rob Chapman dealing with the mysteries of perhaps pop’s greatest enigma. Starting with Syd’s childhood in Cambridge to the pinnacle of success in Pink Floyd and his downward spiral into obscurity. The book does examine the possibilities that Syd had schizophrenia…. it is well established that Syd was a sound synesthete (hears colours) and that fed directly into his music.

The book title ‘A very irregular head’ is spot on and how Syd referred to himself in his last ever interview with Rolling Stone in 1971.

A must have for music fans.
