why are successful musicians invariably skinny c***s to a man?  thinking mostly of rock bands like, and i suppose the answer is booze/tabs/drugs but you'd have thought there would have been more successful fatbands over the years

Booze/tabs/drugs is why.

Source - me, I did nowt but booze/tabs/drugs for 15 years.

Nah there are a few bigger lads / lasses knocking about - Pixies, Elbow, Gossip off the top of my head.

I think once you're out of your 20s and not doing so many drugs then it'll be a case of vanity in a sense - they have an image they need to uphold etc.  You could ask the same about actors or actresses or anyone seen publically and judged on their appearance.  Way skinnier people versus the average.

Being skinny/having the right image is what helped them become successful.  If Mick Jagger looked like James Corden the Stones might not have ever got their big break in the first place.

it's obviously a mix of things but this is important as well yeah...you'd have thought over the years that there'd have been a fat c*** in one of the worlds megabands though

bonham got a bit fat iirc, mozza was fat as f*** as well of course
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

The likes of Axl Rose and Vince Neil have really let themselves go too.

Elbow are a strange one in that when they first came on the scene, Guy Garvey was a tall, skinny indie kid, whereas bandmate Craig Potter was a chubster.
In recent years they've switched rolls (of fat) : Potter looks every inch the Dave Grohl lookalike rock God and Garvey looks like a fat beardy pub singer.

Marco Pirroni looked like a beached whale last time I saw him. I also took my wife to see Poison support Def Leppard a couple of years back, and Joe Elliott looked like Alison Moyet.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

i'm not sure judging them into their 50s/60s/70s is entirely fair mind :lol:

He lives around where I work. I've seen him over the last 20 years get bigger and bigger.
He looks like a Dr Who character now...

I keep getting phonecalls from some pre-recorded Chinese message (with, like, 'gentle' music in the background). I've looked it up and apparently it's some bollocks about me having a fine to pay or some s****. Anyway, it's a completely different number every time meaning it's proving impossible to block. I'm due a new phone anyway but am I gonna have to get a new SIM card in order to stop this? Is this the only way?
