Songs For Syd.

Has Syd touched your life? A talented British musician from the Isle of Man has shown his admiration for Barrett in a very psychedelic way. He writes songs and plays drums,bass,sound effects guitar, and the synthesizer just to name a few. He is in a local band called "Parallax". Joe Perry is a very busy guy between the studio and the stage. Joe discovered Syd Barrett, the Pink Floyd, and PATGOD at a young age. Syd inspired him in many different ways. He learned, like Syd, to think outside of the box. Joe applies this to his music. He has recorded many different tracks for Syd on Some are psychedelic, rock, or just plain spacey. He is a lot like Syd in the way he just wants to have fun and play guitar properly! Sticking a few "Syd~Style" notes or twists into structuring his music. We all love to give Syd a nod. If you are ever in the Isle of Man, and Parallax is playing, go have a beer with them and remember Syd. In the meantime check out his music on

Pink Floyd truly is one of the best bands that was ever together. I think sometimes people get to caught up in considering them a drug oriented band and forget how awesome the music is. Great post keep up the hard work. Check these out IStillGotMyGuitar
