Yes, great cover but to call this a tribute edition is just pure cash-in. They could have done a lot better.
A few pages does not a tribute edition make! Ok so Pete Doherty is current and NME being NME means they had to have his words because they are so terrified of being percieved to be out of touch..
Well Doherty can fuck off, he ain't half the man Syd was and is nothing but a tired cliche re-hash with his boring drug problems and is irrelevant to Syd. If he's the best the NME can do in order to make "the kids" turn onto Syd then they don't know shit from a shovel.
The NME was a major disappointment given their history and the Nick Kent article all those years ago.
A missed opportunity.

Pete Doherty? When the fuck has that guy ever done anything to make him worthy of collumn space regarding Syd Barrett? Thats rediculous, I doubt Doherty even knows who he was! (or who he is... damn junky probably doesn't know his own identity).

Pete Doherty (smokes) rocks.


To be honest I'm bewildered as to why that guy gets so much attention. He's not a particularly talented singer or songwriter, and aside from the rampant drug use he's not even remotely interesting.

Can anyone here hum one of his tunes? No, thought not.


Came across a sad Pete Doherty clone in the pub a few weeks back. He'd affected the look right down to the hat and junkie pallor. He and his mates got asked to leave by the management for trying to drink supermarket lager and roll joints in the pub, then they threw a glass at the glass collector and tried to bottle someone else, instigating a mass brawl that ended with them getting the shit kicked out of them by most of the bar staff and everyone else. Great role models the kids have nowadays.

As much as I love reading on Syd, I will never pick up that shit rag of a magazine again.

You probably don't recognise the irony in your post do you?

I can, it's called "Beg, Steal or Borrow". Good song.

Syd Barrett didn't deserve to be a junky, he wasn't a junky anyway! Syd did know who he was, he was Roger Keith Barrett who briefly became a rock legend as this guy "Syd"

gosh you fans are so vicious! do you only listen to one band then? I reckon you would have dismissed syd in 1968 in the same way you slag off pete. he has talent, so did syd. drugs fucked them both up.
