If you were a real fan, you'd remember!
Disclaimer: I was real drunk.
That would make you more a Lydon fan than Levene fan.
Can’t it be both?
Lydon equals drunk on booze; Levene equals strung out on junk.
Surely Lydon's equally at home with a spliff

Bah, that's not addiction.

Watched the documentary this morning over breakfast. Not a huge surprise that it's an extension of his last memoir. John's a great guy, he's loyal, he's a hard worker, he's been fucked over time and again by people he works with but still loves them all. There's a certain irony that the documentary makes PiL out to be the story of one man's efforts, yet he constantly talks about how it's supposed to be a group effort … and it's the others who failed at that. He puts a lot of emphasis on the childhood meningitis experience and losing his memory and how traumatic that was, how it shaped his character—both being wary and elevating loyalty. If you've read his book, there isn't much here that will change your views, I don't imagine.

Curfews have been curbing
