Syd Barrett – The Piper Was Not The Pauper

LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Despite rumors and assumptions that the late Syd Barrett died last year with little to show for his highly influential work, the Pink Floyd founder has left almost $3.3 million (£1.75 million) to his four siblings.

His brother Allan, who authorized the will on behalf of Syd, scored £425,000, while his sisters Ruth Brown and Rosemary Breen and other brother Donald Barrett had £275,000 each.

Breen, who looked after Barrett in his last days, will also receive proceeds from the sale of his house, which was worth approximately £310,000.

Barrett released two solo albums in 1970 entitled 'Barrett' and 'The Madcap Laughs' and shortly after retreated from the public eye to deal with his mental problems.

He died last year at age 60 as a result of complications from diabetes.
