    Overrated. Wasn't he only on their 1967 album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn? Certainly a good album, but nothing like their later stuff like Meddle, Animals, or The Wall.

    Very sad, I've stuck some Floyd on the decks out of respect.

    I've had diabetes since 1968. I have to wonder how long he's had it.
