Syd Barrett article update apr07 (my article 66 )

Those of you who have read the Mail on Sunday article from December 2006
, will now know Syd Barrett's biographers failed to find out the truth of Syd's last 25 years, the amount of info they give out on him for his time in Cambridge from 1981-2006 is minimal. Some people illegally posted the article on dozens of websites..putting the websites owners at risk of legal action, in response im asking them to remove the copyrighted article as a handful of people who use Syd Barrett websites have been immature and disrespectful towards me. The article was ghost written..i was interviewed and then a journalist wrote up what id told him in his own way to suit the Mail on Sunday's own agenda. Whilst much in the article is details i did say , but by him editing down my unique insightful info on Syd Barrett's reclusive last 25 years in some part i agree i should have been written up better, some of it is written in such a way as to make me look particuarly harsh on Syd Barrett ,they left out many things id told them and chopped down full statements id made to them in such a way as to make me come across far more insensitive about Syd Barrett than i intended, i wish id been allowed to write it up myself..but id have needed far more space than they would provide for any article. As such im going to write a book on everything i know about Syd Barrett and what happened to him in all the time i lived right next door to him for 25 years..i know more than most of Syd Barrett's family members..99.9% of whom never visited him..nor did any Pink Floyd members, Syd was left to rot.

 When people post comments on website forums they should consider why they say what they say and act as if the person theyre talking about is in a room with polite and argue your point but dont get nasty and immature especially as i didnt write that article!. I could have told you this months ago but seeing how vicious some Syd fans are i had no desire to drop the reporter in the shit so to speak, im still protecting his identity as i dont trust some people who claim to be Syd Barrett fans. I hope that when my full story comes out..written by me in my words youll be more respectful of why im telling you how Syd Barrett aka Roger Barrett ended up, for the last time Syd Barrett the ex Pinkfloyd rock band member was extremely mentally ill id say severe schizophrenia as well as other mental problems caused by using lots of the now illegal drug LSD and smoking cannabis in the 1960s caused him massive unrepairable damage which resulted in him being unable to function as a normal human being pretty much from 1968 onwards..his drug use ruined him..i will go into vast detail of exactly what he ended up like to hopefully prevent people copying his attitude that drugs are cool and harmless. please feel free to comment on this blog article below by clicking the comments button and leaving a reply for me, thanks .

PS on 22 April 2007 i have this to add.. some Pinkfloyd/Syd Barrett websites run forums where a small number of people who hide behind usernames still dont seem willing to understand the details on Syd Barrett ive spoken out about. I am unwilling/lacking the time to deal with some stupid people who simply can not handle the truth ive told about Syd Barrett, as such i shall be making no more comments on Syd forums...everytime i jump in to defend my position im giving away tiny pieces of info towards whats really been going on, im not going to fall for these tricks of Syd fans critisising what ive said so i chip in and tell a bit more of my story. You will have to wait for my book.

As ive said any website that in the future shows even a single page of my book will be sued, multiple virus laden fake copies will be added to filesharing services by a leading Antipiracy group so that anyone trying to get my work for free will be left with a seriously messed up computer .

 To the Syd fans who say they wont buy it that's fine my target markets a million times larger than your tiny fan base, although im writing about Syd Barrett the implications of my info are far far more far reaching than simply being useful to Syd Barrett or Pink Floyd fans, the info's extremely useful to everyone. Anyone who decides to review my book be honest, any review sent to Amazon that looks like its written by someone whos not read the book can be removed, likewise for anyone deliberatley being critical because they dont like what i have to say about Pinkfloyd's Syd Barrett, anyway do you really think a review by some unknown persons going to slow down sales of a book sure to get massive press coverage? . To the vast majority of people eager for my full story youll have to be patient, itll be well worth the wait, thanks for your support .

Update on 27 July 2007 , i was asked in a comment where i live now, well im still in England but no longer next to where syd lived for 25 years. I must point out that i have spoken with the new owners of Syd's home wish to be left alone, can you imagine what its like to have total strangers taking photos of your home especially as both Syd Barrett's family and the estate agents didnt tell the buyers it once housed someone famous ! can you believe that !, anyway 1 year since Syd Barrett died a radio show was played, once again rehashing the tale of syd losing it ( going mad) but once again the media fail to disclose how Syd Barrett actually behaved when he went could they? they didnt live next to the man for 25years like i did. Until i disclose the truth go enjoy his amazing music and for gods sake steer clear of all illegal drugs unless you want permanent brain damage, all the best Ds

What Syd said to me will be in the book

Update on 20 Nov2010 my copy of yet another Syd barrett biography called a" very irregular head" by a Mr Rob Chapman arrived from Amazon and i looked in the index for the mysterious Radha person the author claims was aged 7 and lived 2 doors from syd in the early 80's ( so either number 8 or number 4 seeing as Syd Barrett lived at number 6) and she asked Syd about flying horses ... i hope Mr Chapman can prove this isnt made up as there was no one called Radha living is Syd's road in the 80s ! , it also quotes Ian Barrett a nephew of Syd's as claiming to have known this Radha person which means he's ( Ian Barrett) either in on the lie or Rob Chapman has made up this quote too ! , i challenge Mr Chapman to prove this claim, he also lists Radha as being a Cherry Hinton resident..does he mean now in later life she lives there now in 2010? ( Cherry Hinton is a little village outside Cambridge UK , Syd Barrett lived in Cambridge) I dont want anyone to buy a book if its made up and not labelled as fiction ! so Mr Rob Chapman the balls in your court. The fact there's just 2 or 3 lines in a 400 odd page biography of info from Syd Barrett's neighbours does prove Mr Chapman did no research on the matter and is guilty of revising history as someone else put it.
I will apologise of course if Mr Rob Chapman can prove he's not lying in order to sell books.

The forum on Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett has a thread discussing Rob Chapman's book on Syd and via that info i found out Radha is called Radharani krishna harte ( sounds like hari krishna cult name to me) she also lists her name as Ms ana wrecks ya and lists her age as 25 which means her claim of being aged 7 when she met syd was around 1992 if she was born in 1985 which is 25 years back from now 2010. She lists her location as la la london ! i openly challenged Rob Chapman to prove this womans claims are true i even emailed him telling him about the thread on on 21 november 2010 he replied via email and said
dear "dc s"

as a general rule I don't respond to people who don't include their names either in their e mail address or the main body of the text. who are you?

rob c

actually don't bother replying. I've worked out who you are.

rob 'radha' chapman

Then on Monday 22 nov10 Keith jordan who runs the Neptunepinkfloyd website banned me (burp) from his website he says

Burp, it seems you are very... ... about this book but, unfortunately, your comments are drifting too far into the realm of libel to be allowed to continue on this forum. As such you are account is banned.

Wow how childish can you get ! Got to close to the truth did i ! , So anyone who still uses Neptunepinkfloyd who are only allowed to talk about things Keith decides ask him if Rob Chapman threatened him with libel. Anyway ive made my point its now up to Rob Chapman to explain his research and how Radha lived in syds old street ! Im off to play with my magical horse in the land of make believe !

here are some reviews of Rob Chapman's book on Amazon you can take a guess at which review i like best :)

Update on 23 November 2010
I just thought does anyone actually know Keith Jordan ? has anyone got a photo of him ? here's a conspiracy theory..Keith is Rob ! , is Keith on Facebook or Myspace ? have any of you using actually met him in person ? what does he look like ? i want photo proof of who he is, so please contact me via this article.  by using his website he has your computers ip address, email address and all other personal info you give...but just think do we know who he really is ? are there any Youtube videos of him ?? im asking all Pink Floyd or Syd Barrett fans to dig deep and find out if Keith Jordan is a real person because as soon as i criticised Rob Chapman i was banned by Keith ! ..seems very fishy to me.

Keith joined Neptunepinkfloyd on 12 June 2002 then on 22 november 2010 he says I have the book ( a very irregular head) but have not read it yet as I have exams coming up. Here's info on Rob Chapman so he works for the University of huddersfield.. got exams coming up ! he also says on the thread he's aware other Neptunepinkfloyd users are using multiple accounts..if your 1 of those people please contact me id love to know why your using more than 1 account to use a forum on Pinkfloyd..what is going on ?

Update on 24 november 2010 thanks wolfpack for your comment im happy to publish it, i have no problem showing both sides of an argument. Well firstly i can quite easily fill 200 pages on Syd far all Pink Floyd fans know of my info is a 2000 word ghost written article published in the Mail on Sunday a uk newspaper and a couple of articles here on my blog i felt i had to write to explain whats been going on. Wolfpack you didnt mention if you or anyone you know has ever seen Keith have you? if you use google maps you can see that the webmaster of lists his location as
Domain name:

Keith Jordan

Registrant type:
UK Individual

Registrant's address:
46 Glebe Lane
then i find Rob Chapman works at
Address: W1/18
University of Huddersfield,
Huddersfield, HD1 3DH

these 2 places are either side of the city of Manchester...something very very fishy seems to be going on...what are your thoughts ? who is Keith Jordan really ???? could Keith be Rob ???

Im not at all bothered Rob Chapman failed to contact me in any way what so ever regarding my input into a biography on Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett as i wouldnt have given him any info problem with him is that he's printing lies..i know theyre lies as i grew up next door to Syd..there is no question what so ever about whether David  lived next door to Syd..If being in the national press making this claim completely unchallenged doesnt do it for you i dont know what would..let me know. Maybe going on something like Oprah one day and taking a lie detector test would prove things to you !

Its not hard to find a publisher when you have explosive information about one of the most famous rock groups ever ! but i research info properly unlike some people, 200 pages is nothing compared to what i can fill on what i know..youll just have to wait and see ! I will not give away info on the content of what i have to say as i expect others will be reading this who would copy my info.
Wolfpack ive already said in the 2 articles on this blog that my target market is not simply Syd Barrett music fans..feel free to read my 2 articles again to see what im saying
so thanks for your comment Wolfpack your always welcome to keep me informed of what details you might want to know about in a book that has info on Syd in it..please answer my questions re who is Keith Jordan cheers

Update 25 november 2010 Wolfpack if you thing i told a uk newspaper the biggest info of what i know about Syd Barrett in a 2000 word ghost written article your very much mistaken ! I gave them a taste of whats really been going on to shut up the idiots going around saying Syd moved to Cambridge and lived a quiet life and was not mentally ill. Who are you really Wolfpack ? Youll understand that since i find Rob Chapman very likely to be Keith jordan and since many people using Neptunepinkfloyd seem to have hidden agenda's i prefer to know who im really speaking with. The explosive information was not in the Mail on sunday article, like i said you have no idea of what i have to reveal, anyway how did you get to read it ..where did you find it online or do you live in the uk and bought the paper ? I understand Rob chapman is very likely reading this so you wont want to challenge who Keith Jordan really is in a public blog but off the record feel free to speak to me by emailing me..i will keep what you email totally private thanks.

Wolfpack can you or anyone your in contact with that uses neptunepinkfloyd prove Rob isnt Keith ? Im angry a biographer prints lies about Syd as i saw him every day for 25 years pretty much so when a story is spun he was a pretty normal bloke yes it makes me mad. Youll have to wait for my full story to fully understand why its so upsetting.
As for Syd enjoying children its false full stop.

After his solo albums its correct Pink Floyd had nothing to do with him..if you are pulling apart a 2000 word article looking for errors etc you have to understand that a 2000 word article is highly condensed you understand that? I was explaining that in the 25 years from 1981-2006 they never visited Syd once !
As for what research i need to do you've clearly never written a book before..why are you so obsessed with Syd ? again who are you really where do you live?
Yes its well know Syd Barrett is a drug casualty but whats not known is how it affected him..when you see someone daily for 25 years you know the truth.
Of course i wasnt his doctor ! but i can explain how he lived his last 25 years, its the only accurate detail of this legends last 25 years that can be told thats that, hope thatll do..but i really do wonder why you are so obsessed with Syd...please explain yourself cheers

26 November 2010 I want to know where people read the Mail on Sunday article of December 2006 by me/my ghostwriter as its got copyright protection, so kindly tell me where you saw it..thats why it matters as to where and when it was seen from. I agree that if you use neptunepinkfloyd its very wise to use it anonymously as it seems Keith Jordan is possibly some one else.

14 December 2010 i just found this very interesting article about how our brains can be delusional so ill put a link to it here to help the Syd Barrett or Pink Floyd fans having a problem accepting the truth coming out from me about Syd

Update on 6 January 2011
this is my reply to anonymouse ( his comment to me is below in the comments section of this article by me ) you sent me a link about how some people claim Syd Barrett was autistic and had synaesthesia ! this is the article written by Lilli marlene who ive never heard of. The most famous autistic person most people will have seen is the character Dustin Hoffman played in the exellent film Rainman, so my first reply is that Syd Barrett was not autistic, who on earth says he was ? Barrett's brain was exceptional but his drug use destroyed its brilliance very quickly. Syd barrett did not leave an estate worth over 1.5 million pounds to his siblings, they helped themselves to his money, he did not leave it to them they decided it was ok to say he was mentally ill when it suited them so they could grab his cash, just read what his family said before that he wasnt ever mentally ill, then knowing he'd not written a will they declare him mentally ill and incapable of writting a will and thus sign over all his money to themselves ! . Syd smoked cannabis and used LSD and theres no doubt cannabis alone can cause serious mental problems so the author of this article does understand about the effects drugs have on the human brain.

I myself have previously said that the conclusion Syd Barrett delevoped Scizophrenia isnt fully acurate ill not be expanding on this here and now. I cant take anything a Barrett family claims as gospel due to repeated lies theyve told the media, so claiming he was examined and found to be sane means nothing to me...get me a lie detector machine and ill find out what they really know. Dont forget 1 of the biographys on Syd Barrett contradicts this completely as Syd was taken to see R.D Laing who said he was incurable.
Roger waters came very close to acuratly labelling Syd Barrett's illness as Scizophrenia based on his observations, and likewise when i release my full story youll be able to judge for yourselves after hearing about everything ive witnessed.

Syd's withdrawal was not a nervous breakdown ! what nonsense.
As for Syd getting on with kids give me a break, kids were terrified of him. Syd didnt choose to leave the big bad music business he became unable to perform and ran out of ideas. The article ends with "many questions about his life will remain forever unanswered. Don't you love a mystery" ? well its not going to be such a mystery when im finished. I find it interesting that someone claiming to have known Syd between 1989-1991 called autumn leaves in the comments section of lilli marlene's article is from which was founded by rosemary Breen Syd Barrett's sister ! so who is autumn leaves really ? the more you delve into who benefits from portraying Syd as a lovable recluse who was good at art the more obvious the lies become.

Finally anonymouse said i find it unlikely youll find a publisher maybe its time to move on..your not the first person to say this to me so im wondering why are people afraid of what i have to say ? why would you want me to move on and not publish my information? who are you really and what self interest are you trying to protect ? Some of you seem very afraid of what im going to release, if you cant handle the truth of what Syd Barrett became i suggest you stop following any and all information about him as in the end it all leads to who really knows what happened, who saw him daily for 25 years while he was no longer in Pink Floyd ? the answer is me.
1 last thing i agree id prefer not to have needed to publish the address of Neptunepinkfloyd's address but Keith Jordan who ever he may be needs investigating as does Rob Chapman and the claims he makes in his so called biography on Syd written with biased guidance from some members of the Barrett family and Rob Chapman's book contains out and out lies which makes me question just how much of the information in his book A very irregular head is true. Radha lived in Syd's old street ! nonsense and Rob Chapman says Ian Barrett claims to have known this fictional person !, i wonder which section of a book shop Rob's book should be in ? yes thats right the fiction section.
