Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of Pink Floyd) in 1996
Additional material from these sessions was compiled and released as the album "Opel" in 1988
During the taping of the band's appearance on The Pat Boone Show (1967) in 1967, he was so stoned that he couldn't even lip-sync his own vocals, much less mime his own guitar playing (bands playing on television in those days would often mime along to their hit records)
Was a member of Pink Floyd from 1964-1968, and wrote most of the songs on the band's debut album "Piper At The Gates of Dawn" (1967)
