Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett was born on 6th January 1946 in Cambridge. He is best remembered as one of the founding members of the group Pink Floyd, and was active as a rock musician for only a few years, before mental problems forced him into obscurity, but he has been remarkably influential. Pink Floyd (originally called both "Tea Set" and "The Pink Floyd Sound", then later "The Pink Floyd") was formed in 1965.
