I've probably gone into this story before but I met him once about ten years ago. I'd heard a rumour online that he'd be playing a secret set at a pub just down the road from me, because he'd been doing that at a few places around that time. He didn't, but he was there.
From a distance he looked exactly the same, but up close he looked and smelt like a hobo with a thousand yard stare, and when I asked about his music he talked vaguely about future plans but in a way that gave me no confidence he would ever actually get it together. And ten years on, he still hasn't!
It still sucks because the unfinished La's second album stuff could've been really good if he could've just finished the damn songs:
Even Syd Barret managed to put out four albums of stuff, but not this loon!
