The family and estate managers of Syd Barrett are to mark what would have been his 70th birthday tomorrow with the launch of a new website.

The family of the iconic musician who died ten years ago will be unveiling a new official website at 12 noon on Wednesday 6th January, offering a wealth of previously unseen family photographs documenting Syd from early childhood until the early 1980s.

There are plans to reveal more unseen material at regular intervals throughout the year, as well as publishing a range of articles about Syd and his music from celebrity guest writers.

The original site is still live. The new site will occupy the same web address from noon tomorrow.
