The syd barrett story

syd barrett interview

We all felt he shoul d have gone to see a psychiatrist, though someone in fact played an interview he did to R. I'd always bee n told, at school anyway, that I was absolutely bloody hopeless at everything, so I had no real confidence about any of it.

I didn't pick up that he was a drug casualty, although there were lots at the time who would do those exact things because they were drugged out.

Barrett's sister, Rosemary Breen, supported this, the first-ever series of official events in memory of her brother. It's impossible. He had little contact with others, apart from his regular visits to his management's offices to collect his royalties, [] and the occasional visit from his sister Rosemary. I see him very rarely. They had this improvisation, this spirit of psychedlia which I don't think any other band had. I introduced my wife and I dunno; I think he just laughed. Brown arrived at the show late, and saw that Bruce was already onstage, along with "a guitarist I vaguely recognised", playing the Horace Silver tune " Doodlin' ".

The syd barrett story

I was with him in the room when he was writing it. There'll be all kinds of things. That stare, you know? The acid brought out the creativity, but more importantly, it brought out the madness. He used to come round to my house at five in the morning covered in mud from Holland Park when he'd freaked out and the police chased him.

Maybe it's our fault because we are trying too hard. We spent three months recording it, which was quite a long time in those days.
