Joe looking unwell in MTV doc

Post by muppet hi fi » 08 Jul 2018, 12:35am

I'd never seen this before. It's OK - standard MTV rock-doc fare. But Joe looks horrible, and sounds horrible as well. The lighting doesn't do his face any favors, but you can tell he looks off. And very high. His voice is very high as well - obviously doing coke. Even his diction and mannerisms are off, never mind his Jimmy Buffet shirt. Further evidence (along with 'Earthquake Weather' and its massive success) that Joe was not a very happy camper during that period while living in LA. By contrast, Mick looks and sounds great, especially considering he'd been legitimately seriously ill less than three years prior. Poor Joe.

That shirt immediately screamed – last days of The Pogues...you can see Spider et al drift into these 'World Music' shirts in the times of Shane self destructing during later Pogues tours; Mick is such a fucking fashion victim in this I wanna kill him; that fucking Stussy gear he insisted on wearing – Jesus?!
