Yup, Robert does smoke....


Fatter than Bob, balder than Porl, as sober as Simon, as amusing as Jason

That is He Did smoke then...

I got another trivial issue to ask about:

DID YOU HEAR THE VOICES OF ALL BAND MEMBERS?!

Beside Robert's small talk, there is not many ocasions to hear others speak...

I only heard Simon's voice on that KROQ interview...

I've always wondered the same thing about Robert and smoking. I've only seen one photograph of him with cigarette. It was in the Ten Imaginary Boys book. If he does, he sure is good at concealing it!


i think i've seen a couple of photos (but they are all old ones, around '83 or '84). but i've heard from one person whose friend... (ha ha what a way to start a topic - now everyone will believe me on this for sure oh yes... sure it sounds like an urban legend but at least i do believe my source... well anyway:
 ...attended the bloodflowers show in paris & managed to get an autograph from robert afterwards that robert was 'casually smoking' while he wrote the autograph  :smt033

I would really like to see the video of Lyon98.

Well, indeed he seems a bit! drunk. His erratic behaviour, the fact that he sings very close to the audience (he never does that) and touches them (he NEVER does that)...

another video from 1998.



the best part of it :2:49
fortunately, he's mature enough now to cut down the amount of alcohol he's drinking before the shows.

another video from 1998.

Ah, I still have parts of this gig on a videotape somewhere (along with another festival show from '98)!
I loved it at the time, not because it was their best gig, but because it was real fun to watch!  :lol:
Robert's lying on the floor at one point and Simon's walking over to look if he's okay, while Roger's shaking his head in disbelief.  :-D
Oh I miss the kiss of treachery...
