Some Pink Floyd fans speculate that The Wall
may be the life stories of Syd Barrett, not Roger Waters, and that the movie's character, Pink, is a merging of both Waters and Barrett. A piece of evidence toward Syd Barrett's presence in Pink is in this song. The line, "I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm" could refer to Syd's haircut during his prime in the '60s.
