Some of the Syd nuts here might get a kick out of this. Mark Sturdy wrote an article for Mojo a few years ago that chronicled the Stars period. Stars was a short lived band Syd formed with Twink (drums) and Jack Monk (bass) that existed for around a month in early 1972. The article has lots of new bits about that period as well as Syd's association with Steve Took in 1972 and Syd's last public appearence, amazingly enough, at a jam session with Jack Bruce in 1973. Mark gave me the ok to post his unedited first draft of the article which has around 2000 words that were edited out of the Mojo piece. I'll post the article in a seperate post below.
