Alan McGee's recent interview for

  • Interviewer: Out of Jesus and Mary Chain, Oasis, and The Libertines, who partied hardest?
  • Alan McGee: The Libertines. They’re mental. Pete Doherty’s got the constitution of an ox. The Mary Chain partied, but they’re normal people. Oasis partied, but they’re basically normal people. Pete Doherty partied and I don’t actually know how he’s still alive. I mean The Mary Chain are animals, they’re still at it, but they’ve also got families and normal lives. I don’t think Pete Doherty has a normal life in that way. He is Pete Doherty 24/7. I’m not putting him down; that’s just how he is.

No one got it right, no one got it wrong
Live outside your head, live inside a song
Oh love, those long lost weekdays spilling over me
And your outlines are all I can see

"What irritates you most about Alex?"

Matt: He’s always late. He’s like clockwork in his lateness. Yesterday in Southhampton, the bus was picking us up at half 12 at the hotel to go to the venue, and [tour manager] Timm phoned him, goes, ‘Al, where are you? The bus is here.’ Everybody knew what time they had to be down there. He said, ‘I’m watching Danger Mouse’. He was still in bed.
