    Default Video of Syd Barrett

    So i recently came across this video which is supposedly a home video of Syd Barrett, probably from the 80s playing the guitar. Does anyone have any information in this video? Is it fake? If its legit than its pretty incredible due to the fact that very little is known about Syd from this time period ever picking up a guitar. Would love to know if any of you guys have seen this video or know where its from. Thanks

    If you pause that picture it actually does look like a fat bald Syd.

    More than than I would doubt its him.

    I'm quite sure I've seen this before, long long ago. I believe it was debunked as fake (but don't rely on that information).

    Could be anyone, really. I SERIOUSLY doubt this is authentic.

    Yeah, I saw no reason then and see none now to think it's got anything to do with Syd. I wish I could remember how and when this one was getting passed around -- it might have even been in pre-YouTube days.

    That white thing on the ceiling looks like a smoke detecter, we didn't have those in the 80's!

    I'm sure this is totally fake. Doesn't look like Syd at all to me. And that guitar playing is an insult imho.

    By all reports, Syd didnt play any music past the 70's and certainly didn't have an amp set up at Win's house, with a fuzz pedal and wah, playing beginners attempts at bad 90's alternative.
