RIP, Syd Barrett

It's ironic or something--or perhaps I jinxed it--but I was just thinking the other day how, unlike so many of the other seminal or enduring bands to come out of the drug-addled 1960s, Pink Floyd has been lucky that all of its members were still around and kicking. And, I suppose, if you don't count Syd Barrett, who hadn't been in the band since 1968, that's still true. But if you count Syd--and I do--it's not true anymore. (And David Gilmour's looking pretty pasty lately, too, isn't he?)

Which raises two questions: One, what bands is that now true for? Are there any?

And two, which one's Pink?
