Syd Barrett - A Very Irregular Head US edition Syd Barrett - A Very Irregular Head

"Syd Barrett: A Very Irregular Head", book by Rob Chapman that is in stores now, has received glowing reviews from the press and Pink Floyd fans alike. Published by Faber and Faber in the UK (cover thumbnail far right), and Da Capo Press in the US (cover thumbnail near right), it aims to be "the first authoritative and exhaustively researched biography of Syd Barrett that fully celebrates his life and legacy as a musician, lyricist and artist, and which highlights the influence that he continues to have over contemporary bands and music fans alike."

With the book running to some 448 pages, and the help of Syd's sister Rosemary, there is plenty of information that Chapman has brought together to tell Syd's story.
