Syd Barrett (1/6/1946 - 7/7/2006)
Syd Barrett, founder and inspiration of the early Pink Floyd, passed away July 7, 2006. The Professors were scheduled to play an entire performance of Pink Floyd songs at their summer appearance at the Failte Coffeehouse, and very quickly turned the show into a tribute to Syd Barrett and the influence he had on the later Pink Floyd. The Professors debuted eight new songs at this show: Mother, The Gnome, A Pillow of Winds, Echoes, If, Childhood's End, Free Four, and Us and Them, all of which were prepared in a hectic three week period immediately prior to the show. The songs represent all aspects of Pink Floyd's repertoire, ranging from "The Gnome" from "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn" (1967) through "The Wall" (1979). The show saw the debut of Chris Calidero as a full member of The Professors.
