The new issue of Q Magazine (cover date February 2004) has a cover feature of the top 100 of Most Insane Moments in Rock. Typically with a subject of this nature, the authors of the piece haven't necessarily been totally respectful but we've had a lot of emails about this so am sharing the information with you for you to make your own mind up about this.

"Syd Barrett's bad trip" ranks 78th in their estimation, with these as the top five:

  1. Keith Moon. (!)
  2. Prince goes door to door for Jehovah's witnesses
  3. Marilyn Manson covers deaf girl in meat
  4. Michael Jackson puts a voodoo curse on Steven Spielberg
  5. Elvis Presley flies 879 miles for food.

Despite some items not being in the best taste or respectful (e.g., Syd's trip), some of the entries are actually very funny indeed. The issue is out now. Thanks to Bert for tipping us off!
