49- Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Over all, Godspeed You! Black Emperor is a very experimental Post-Rock group that always amazes me for its power that almost makes me want to give up everything I have in music. I have to see them live before I die (now thats a treat!).
That must be normal in Canada? -_-
48. Syd Barrett
What can I say? The guy was too original for Pink Floyd... Or maybe too weird! The way Syd Barrett left Pink Floyd, or most likely, the way Pink Floyd let him go was on a beautiful day jaming with the band. Syd wrote a song called "Have You Got it Yet?", and as he was showing the song to Waters, he kept changing the time signatures over and over again until Roger Waters said "I Got it Now" And walked out of the room. Thats the last time Syd Barrett ever played with Pink Floyd.
Now that's only Roger's point of view. I like to think that Roger Waters couldn't follow the insane time signatures of Syd Barrett... Did you know that Gilmour's solo in "Money" had to be in 4/4 because he thought it would've been too hard doing it in 7/4? And if Gilmour was just as good as Waters, it could've been that Waters just didn't understand the time signatures given out by Syd... After Pink Floyd, Syd started his career as a visual artist and let me tell you that his paintings are as good as his songs. Syd was a true genius in everything he ever did. Possibly the most crazy weird musician ever.
Syd died of pancreatic cancer in 2006 at the age of 60. He will always be remembered as a hero.
