Yeah, Effervescing Elephant is brilliance, but it's the only song on that album that I really want to hear again. Definitely makes one wonder just what would have happened to Pink Floyd if he'd stayed ...

I think Syd liked being in a band because it balanced him out. Once he lost Floyd I wonder if he just gave up on the idea that he could work with other people. I mean, if you can't work it out with people you've played with for a while - and I'm sure it's not easy to find guys like Water, Wright and Mason - how would he be able to go on with another group that didn't understand him at all. Plus, I think Waters [and maybe Gilmour ] were ambitious and figured Syd was just too loopy?

I'll be at work for much of my 14th, and thus not posting... but in the evening I'll probably be online. Which would probably be the morning of the 14th on your side of the planet...

Do you have any of his albums?
No, I've heard some of his solo stuff, but I've never gotten an entire album of his. What I've heard is good, but not great. To me he has a Hendrix vibe to him - incredibly expressive, but not so great on handling all aspects of the process. Know what I mean?

Righto... so by the time it's the 15th where you are, we'll be into Saturday, and thus more likely to be online. Whee!

Will there be drunkposting? Or do you have sociable birthday-type plans?

I've got three of his albums and an EP. Shadows Collide with People is one of my favorite albums, and The Will to Death is consistent, though not all that impressive.

And I know exactly what you mean. I feel like he's yet to come up with a single song that definitely brings it all together.

There's a lot to compare between him and Hendrix, actually.

It's interesting, his philosophy on recording is that it's best to spend as little time in the studio as possible, so you don't out-think yourself when writing songs. I think maybe he should at least try spending more time, just to shake things up.

Have you listened to Jane's Addiction yet? I notice a lack of homage to them in your writings. This makes me uneasy.
