Apparently he died on Friday.

Why did it take four days to announce it?

Roger is playing live in Italy tommorow. I would like to hear his reaction.

So it was cancer. They did a pretty good job of keeping that one secret.

It says on the reports here in the UK that Syd died from complications rising from diabetes - no mention of cancer though.
