More words of wisdom from our learned friend and Blur bass player, Alex James.
"I was a hedonist. I wanted to get drunk and be irresponsible."
"I saw life merely as an opportunity to have as much fun as possible. All young people do, I think."
Wrong. We weren't all fun-loving, Alex. Many of us were depressed, you know.
And on why festivals became the place to be seen for hordes of middle class students in the 90s:-
"I think it was because the best music attracts the prettiest girls and when the pretty girls come, everyone else soon follows."
I think you'll find, Alex, that the best music in the 90s was in the clubs. And I'm at a loss to understand why being a pretty girl means you've got good taste in music. And does everyone follow pretty girls? I thought only creepy men followed pretty girls?
To be continued.
