Syd Barrett was born on January 6, 1946 and died on July 7, 2006.

Besides being Pink Floyd’s founding guitarist/frontman, one of his other biggest contributions to the band’s history is serving as the inspiration to “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” an epic and favorite among fans the world over.

Of course, “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” isn’t the only tribute track in rock history.  In honor of Barrett’s life, scroll through the other notable tribute songs below and who they honor.
