I was priviledged enough to hear most one of their shows, even though I lived almost two miles from the outdoor venue. It wasn't a clear, distinct sound, but it was enough to know what was being played.
At 30 he clearly had a problem but had it been really as bad as claimed how could he have kept, or even been allowed by the management, to keep performing.
The biggest myth about him, he now claims, is probably that he was constantly endangering himself with drugs. In his own words "Actually, I would take drugs quite responsibly," During his 30's his body could cope but I guess he knows it wouldn't be able to today.
A strong desire to live would be my guess?
I'm sure he has done more than his fair share of drugs, achohol, tabacco and all other things claimed to be "harmful".......but, maybe a desire to live keeps any ill-effects at arms length :)
He is of course a "Brit", and we don't die easily as a nation :)
