Complete c*nt or not?
I am a huge fan and never kidded myself that he was anything but an arsehole especially when it came to members of the musical press (and members of his former band).
Just heard the latest podcast from our friends at The Word. Biographer Howard Sounes talked about Lou for about 45 mins, not too much new info, but he claimed that Lou was always an alcoholic, never stopped boozong and that caused his death from liver disease, rather than the historical abuse in the 60s and 70s.
I know Sounes possibly does not have the best reputation, but this bothered me somewhat. Lou claimed to be completely clean since the eighties, was always sipping on water and eating raw veg or something in interviews. So that was all just a lie? Also would explain a lot of his behaviour towards other members of the human race I suppose.
