I heard something about Syd visiting during WYWH session.

Reprinted from the Echoes FAQ

When Pink Floyd was recording 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' (and on the very day of David Gilmour's wedding to his first wife, Ginger), they received a visitor in the studio. He basically kept to himself, occasionally getting up to brush his teeth. From Pink Floyd: The Illustrated Discography:

During the WYWH sessions a fat, shaven-headed person wearing grey Terylene trousers, a nylon shirt and string vest wandered into the studio. The band ignored the visitor and kept on playing and it was the visiting Andrew King who finally recognised their guest: 'Good God, it's Syd! How did you get like that?' To which Syd replied, 'I've got a very large fridge at home and I've been eating a lot of pork chops.' The whole event was slightly un-nerving since the theme of the album was based on Syd and his subsequent madness.
