Whatever Happened To My Rock’n’Roll?
The December issue of Q magazine includes a lengthy QAwards 2005 section, featuring interviews with the many award winners. Almost every interview starts with the question, “What Are You Drinking?” Here are the replies, in the order they were printed.
Yoko Ono: “Water”
James Blunt: “I’m drinking the Q Awards Champagne.”
Charlotte Church: “Bloody Coca-Cola.” (At least she’s upset about it.)
KT Tunstall: “I’m on the champagne.”
Paul Weller: “Water. I’m driving, man.”
Nick Cave: “Water. Not a drop of alcohol has passed my lips. I’ve decided to take it easy.”
Robin Gibb: “Just water for me. I don’t drink.”
Damon Alban: “I will be trying not to mix my drinks… Drunken dad is not a good idea.”
Michael Eavis: “I’ve had a glass of white wine, but I probably shouldn’t have.”
Ray Davis: “Water, mostly, although I’ve just had a sip of champagne.”
Peter Hook: “Er, nothing. I’m an alcoholic.”
Stephen Morris: “Water, It’s free.”
Jimmy Page: “Non-alcoholic beer today.”
At which point, you can only say, thank God for The Prodigy. ….
Liam Howlett: “Champagne. I only drink champagne or water, that’s the truth.”
Keith Flint: “Whatever I start on, I finish on. I’ve got loads of time for sleep. I just like staying up, getting fucked.”
