The first trailer for Have You Got It Yet? The Story of Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd, a documentary about Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett, has been unveiled.
The documentary features new interviews with Pink Floyd’s surviving members — Roger Waters (Barrett’s classmate and Pink Floyd’s co-founder), Nick Mason, and David Gilmour — to provide insight into The Piper at the Gates of Dawn mastermind’s meteoric rise, acid-fueled breakdown and eventual exile from the band.
“There are some people who must have a weakness of some sort, like a switch waiting to be turned, and that switch will go, and they’ll never quite come back,” Gilmour says in a voiceover in the trailer.
The documentary, produced by Universal Music Group’s Mercury Studios, is named after an unreleased song Barrett brought to his final practice with Pink Floyd. The movie also features interviews with The Who‘s Pete Townshend, Blur‘s Graham Coxon, MGMT‘s Andrew VanWyngarden and more.
Roddy Bogawa and the late album cover designer Storm Thorgerson directed the documentary.
“Would anyone care about the story of Syd Barrett if Pink Floyd hadn’t become one of the biggest bands of all time? Would Pink Floyd have existed without Syd?” Bogawa said in a statement.
