The Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story To Be Reissued

The Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story is set for re-issue to DVD on May 20. The doc, originally titled Syd Barrett: Crazy Diamond, debuted on the BBC in 2001. The doc will also come in a two disc set which features interviews with Pink Floyd band members Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright.

Barrett was an integral figure in Floyd's early history, leaving the band in 1968 owing to increasingly erratic behavior.

According to his sister, he watched the documentary when it was first broadcast. He said he found it "too loud", although he did enjoy seeing Mike Leonard, who he referred to as his "teacher."

In addition to interviews, the doc also features rare early television appearances of Pink Floyd, and home movies.
