Aren't the lyrics to the title track on Siberia an ode to Mac's love affair with the white stuff?

Without sounding patronising,I cant believe this is such a shock to people.
Macs interviews have been littered with reference to it for year.Mac solo years were really when he took a nose dive right into it all.The Bunnymen in the 80's were called Echo and the Buglemen by the press-thats in the sleeve notes to the boxset.He cleaned himself up for Electrafixion and gave some very frank interviews about coke(see The Face 1994).He was clean for the Bunnymen reunion-I know for a fact that when he recorded NLF with Liam Gallagher Mac was the only one NOT partaking.However with the drop in fortunes of the Bunnymen from 98 onwards plus splitting with his wife,looks like he got back into it big style.[/i]

Maybe for the recording.
But not for the tour.

Anybody heard the name "Delvis"? Paul somethingorother from LA.
Was on the entire second go-round of the tour. Kept Ian in constant supply, but was good enough to make sure he made the bus to the next city most mornings.

I am not surprised but, disgusted on his drug useage. I remember talking to a few people about it and NOT believing it but, at least this thread has evidence.

Will has & will hold the band together. Forever. Miss Les though. Without Will there would be no Bunnymen. Period.

Mac is a grown man. He's got 2 older daughters, an ex-wife and now a new baby with a girlfriend. OMG. WTF more does he need and want? He has money, fame, fortune & notoriety. He has friends that stood with him for the test of time. Just because he didn't get to play for LFC & was dealt some sad cards doesn't mean he doesn't have it all already. WTH? WTF? Wake up Mac, put down the cigarettes, booze & coke. Look around at what is good in your life...

Hey the original review is gone. BOF intervention?
With the Force as his ally he did battle with the Dark Lord. And he showed the measure of a true Jedi at a place called "The Death Star" where hope for the Galaxy was reborn. May all who struggle against tyranny hold his memory in their hearts

we'll ride the tidal wave,
always sailing seven seas together,
in the same boat---always."


And thus began the trend of using lyrics from REALLY SHITTY Bunnymen songs as signature lines...
