Spin magazine has, for once, a really great article up on its site. No, I mean, really good and entertaining. It's an article all about what it was like for a guy to go touring with Grinderman.
The very first picture of Nick scares me because he looks like Billy Bob Thornton, post-facelift. I think it's just a bad picture. The boa picture is amazing, and it's not the pink one!
Nick goes shopping for magic tricks, almost barfs over chicken gizzards, Warren keeps vomiting or having diarrhea...no, seriously, that's just the first couple pages. OH, and the thing about getting a dog = adorable and hilarious.
It's long, but DEFINITELY worth the read for such gems as:
"The three of them begin ordering for the table: skewers of chicken hearts and gizzards, beef tongue, quail eggs, and French fries with spicy cod roe and mayo sauce. Nick looks pale. "Do you have any, like, plain rice?" he asks the waitress."
"Warren, after four nights of gastrointestinal battle, improbably orders a side of chili. "He just likes the attention," Nick notes.
"Nick blows me away with his one-night stand years ago with a renowned and extremely temperamental diva. They went back to his hotel and got busy. Hungover the next morning, Nick drank the glass of water that was on the night table. Water that contained the diva's contact lens. "She never quite forgave me," he says.
Oh, and there's a disgusting joke Nick tells too...involving incest and, erm...well, anyway...haha.
