Syd Barrett: Le Rock et Autres TrucsFurther to last month's news about "Syd Barrett, le premier Pink Floyd", which was published on January 15th, news reaches us today about another French language book about him.

"Syd Barrett: le rock et autres trucs" ("rock and other stuff") is published on February 19th by éditions Philippe Rey and written by Jean-Michel Espitallier. The book is said to investigate the "mystery of Barrett", but goes further by questioning other things and exploring subjects such as fan worship, the iconic status of celebrity, and more.

Whilst we cannot of course vouch for the quality of the book, should you wish to investigate it further and are currently taking orders for it, as are other French retailers. Our thanks to Jacques for the info.
