Jul 11 2006, 16h10Syd Barrett, founding member of Pink Floyd and legendarilly scrambled-noggin genius, has died.
According to a spokesperson from Pink Floyd, Barrett died at the weekend after suffering complications resulting from his type two diabetes.
His brother Alan confirmed the news, saying "He died peacefully at home. There will be a private family funeral in the next few days."
As everyone knows, Barrett provided the mercurial element in Pink Floyd's early psychedlic meanderings before he had a massive breakdown, apparently brought on by taking too much acid, though many have speculated that he was a schizophrenic.
Since being booted out of Pink Floyd, Barrett lived at his mother's old house in Cambridgeshire, where he died on Friday.
He is lost but shall not be forgotton.! R.I.P Syd.
Jun 28 2006, 16h15Have you all heard the news?
Much-loved American rock act Sleater Kinney have called it a day after more than a decade.
The band, featuring Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss, will honour their touring commitments before bidding au revoir to their indie brothers and sisters.
In a statement they said: "After eleven years as a band, Sleater-Kinney have decided to go on indefinite hiatus.
"The upcoming summer shows will be our last. As of now, there are no plans for future tours or recordings. We feel lucky to have had the support of many wonderful people over the years. We want to thank everyone who has worked with us, written kind words about us, performed with us, and inspired us.
"But mostly we want to extend our gratitude to our amazing fans. You have been a part of our story from the beginning. We could not have made our music without your enthusiasm, passion, and loyalty. It is you who have made the entire journey worthwhile."
What a kick in the balls huh i was hoping to see them live at least one more time before they did this :( Oh they left us with some kick ass albums i shouldnt moan really,Just a big suprise more than anything.
