this article is a pretty good read, i don't think it's anywhere near as debilitating for him now as it was a few years ago, but yeah, perhaps he's not the cheeriest person.

i didn't know he was a StKilda supporter, that probably doesn't help

well the concert was very good, he mentioned how he doesn't use setlists anymore, as he just got back from America and was playing to crowds of eight or 10 people, it was pointless. i have quite a story to tell about the night however, and i will post back with that later as i'm going to write an actual short story, i would love if you could take the time to read it.

Bollywood movie paints Melbourne as racist - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
