Barret Leaves $3.3 Million Will

Late PINK FLOYD rocker SYD BARRETT has left almost $3.3 million (GBP1.75 million) to his family in his will. The star, who died last year (06) after health complications arising from diabetes, has split the money between his four brothers and sisters. Barrett has left $840,000 (GBP420,000) to his brother Alan, with siblings Donald, Rosemary Breen and Ruth Brown receiving $543,000 (GBP271,500) each. Sister Rosemary will also receive the proceeds from the sale of the musician's house, which fetched over $600,000 (GBP300,000). Barrett left Pink Floyd in 1968 before the band went on to gain international musical success.
