  • Other Prefs:

    Contrary to many uttered opinions I do not indulge in taking cocaine, nor other so called heavy drugs - and never will, I even dispise the use of that... stay clean, folks! I like classy, skinny, leggy women with their own nīmind and character, a nice place in the sun, a good talk, 1978, I believe in God, er... and the rest will have to be found out via rumours and local talk, tho you got to be careful,... ask me firsts, rather. And if I lie it's for the best of ev'ryone.

    It's only Rock`n`Roll but I like it -
