Piper at the Gates of Dawn was one of the best albums by Pink Floyd, and Syd was the original brilliant talent in the group.
Shine on Syd...

We would have to be ruling out drug-induced psychosis, first, of course...

Definitely substance induced - I just couldn't fathom the thought of him being schizophrenic and truly tortured in that sense. You know, we've all been there, our psychotic drug induced states causing us to be so prolific and yet the world just doesn't understand <sigh>

Shine on you crazy diamond.... How I wish... How I wish you were here, we're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year, running over the same ground and how we found.... the same old fears, wish you were here.

I'll find you again brother, I'll find you again :oops: <flicks bic lighter, holding it in the air... SOB SOB SOB>

Definately in the differential. But there were hints of disturbance and odd behavior even prior to the psychedelic drug scene:

Likely a combination of both, as we've seen in so many cases. Diathesis-physiological stress.
