 Who the hell was the douchebag interviewing them? He seemed like a real prick. "It's too LOUD for me, and really repetitive, so I don't like it at all..." Asshole.

 steady on, bassman. just because you disagree with him, doesn't mean he's an "asshole". I don't think he said he didn't like them /at all/. take it easy..

 OK, so I exaggerated a wee bit. But he's still a bit of a douchebag.

 No, that guy was an asshole. A complete asshole. A German asshole named Hans. He was a total prick because Pink Floyd didn't make classical music. Asshole. Syd did a fine job defending his band, however.

 My knowledge of Barrett was (is) almost zilch. Nothing I've read since his death has made me regret this more than this article.

 It's very strange to view this after so many years. Hans obviously didn't understand their music calling it "a regression to childhood" or something. I can't imagine anyone saying that about Syd Barrett or his music today.

 I watched "The Wall" for the first time yesterday, drunk as a skunk, and it seemed like Fantasia with an Oedipus complex. Today I read this article and wonder why it couldn't have been better.
