"Who's gonna drive me home"


Live Aid Pairty, July 1985

After enjoying Freddie Mercury and Queen's sensational performance at Wembley Stadium in big Lourie's Maw's hoose at the Crescent a fresh-faced, yet hirsute, Nevets gets absolutely Radio Ga-Ga on three pints of Charger.

Meanwhile, like a pack of hyenas, the God Squad are circling just out of shot in the background, waiting to pounce.........

As a matter of fact, I'm virtually sober in this picture. It was taken at the start of the evening. The photographer asked me to pose and I gave him my best Dean Martin.

Sorry Nev I think u must be mistaken - we also have the 'Before' foaty. For comparative purposes we'll post it shortly.

No, I think you are mistaken. The "before" photograph you have is actually the "after" photograph, as I have been explaining to everyone for the last 20 years. It's like this: Nash (I'm assuming it was Nash who took the photograph)asked me to pose for a photograph so I took my glasses off to give him my Dean Martin. Then I put my glasses back on, turned my head, and Nash took another photograph. Compare the two photographs; I'm sitting in exactly the same position. Also, check the negatives, which should show which photograph was taken first.

Sorry Nev - I stand corrected.

But ken this - somehow I prefer the legendary version....

It's not that I'm denying getting completely, one-hundred per cent, rat-arsed, pickled liver, throwing-up-on-a-bed drunk and making a total fanny of myself - guilty, your honour - it’s just that the picture of me looking “drunk” has haunted me for bloody years. If you're wanting stupid photos of me, Nash should have one of me with a horrible moustache and a quiff when I was about 14.
