Lost passphrase/new key

GPG Keychain Access 1.1.3 (601)

Installed a previous version of the software 2 years ago. Generated a public key and uploaded it, but never actually used the program since. Am interested again, have just installed the latest stable build, but have forgotten my passphrase. It is not recorded in my Mac keychain. I could generate a new key, but I cannot revoke/delete the old one. Wouldn't that be a problem? People searching for my public key would then find both, and would not know which one was valid...
