Pet Sounds might be a bit overrated, but I love it.

^No doubt.

Too bad he fried his brain on drugs in the 60's. According to his brothers and close friends, he stayed zoned out in his bedroom for about three years, doing pretty much nothing but sleeping, laying in bed, eating and using the bathroom.

Like Syd Barrett, he took one too many acid trips.

I was lucky enough to see The Smile tour in the UK a couple of years back. One of the best gigs I've ever seen. Brian Wilson is the man.

I don't think you can compare Brain Wilson's mental state to Syd Barrett... Yes Brian used many drugs but he was also a genius (as in above normal smart, not just musically) so he sees things different than most.

At least he is back touring and making new material and hasn't died... He also lost weight.

No Sid Barett blew his mind on psychedelics and had to be committed into a mental institution where he died, and he did not compose a master piece like Pet Sounds. He is no where close to Wilson. I am sure he was smart though...

Syd Barret didnt die in a mental institution. He died at his home in Cambridge.
