Syd Barrett- Dark Globe (the original singer of The Pink Floyd who went crazy and spent most of his adult life living with his mother in the country until he died a few years ago. He inspired many Pink Floyd songs including Shine On You Crazy Diamond, from this list. I am more of a fan of his solo stuff, like this song, than his work with Pink Floyd.
