Where Are They Now?
[Info from the “Saucerful of Secrets” and “Crazy Diamond” books:] Roger Barrett currently resides in suburban Cambridge. He lives a fairly isolated existence, his affairs looked after by his sister, Rosemary Breen. He spends his time painting, reading, tending his garden and coin collection, and working on a pet-project of his, “The History of Art.” The money from his Pink Floyd and solo albums is more than enough to subsidize his low-key lifestyle.
Though there are occasional “Syd sightings,” Mr. Barrett finds it difficult to relate to and communicate with other people, and anyone attempting to track him down is likely to meet with a closed door, and the ire of Barrett fans worldwide who feel he should be left alone.
Dave, Rick and Nick
Dave, Nick and Rick are doing what they like best. Nick is racing his cars, Rick is sailing his yachts and Dave is flying his airplanes and occasionally contrubuting some guitar playing to other artists’ albums. Making music and recording a new Floyd album is apparently not high on their priority list.
Roger is undertaking a tour of the USA, is still working on his opera, has plans for a book of poetry and is working on a collection of short stories. He has booked studio time for February 2000 to work on a new album of rock music, which he says will be based on the theme of “personal responsibility.”
