Syd Barrett, one of the founding members of Pink Floyd, left his public life behind in 1978. Barrett quit the band after just two albums but was never able to find success on his own. When the money from Pink Floyd ran out, Barrett walked 50 miles to his mother’s house, changed his name to Roger, and never appeared in public again. - XFINITY Entertainment Staff
