Mad Notions

#22 - Smokin’ Fags For $8 An Hour

May 23, 2018

So there Mick and Nathan were, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweets shop on the edge of town. So - they go. And - it's closed. So there's Mick, Nathan, and Keith Moon, and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweets shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. Mick managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shopowner and his son... that's a different story altogether. Nathan had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business, really. But, sure enough, they got the M&Ms, and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.

Mick and Nathan discuss only a few of the outrageous demands associated with Axel Rose, and the behaviours of rock stars in the age of indulgent excess.
