    Rachael :
    Can I just say how beautiful he was at this time too…

    @Rachael Yes! I was having this same conversation elsewhere. He was 31 years old here and looks 25. That sullen baby face. My goodness! *throwing hearts*

    So he was the same age as I am now, no wonder I fancy him so much (more than usual) in this interview lol!
    Wish more guys my age looked like him…

  3. this is great interview! thanks for posting. i’m surprised he lasted, he was all but rolling his eyes at some points. Can I just say how beautiful he was at this time too…

  4. @Andrew – you are welcome. I was very happy to see a 43 min interview from the Tender Prey period in pristine condition. First I thought there would be voice-overs as we’ve seen in various other European TV interviews but I was glad to see that this chap was English fluent. He certainly did his best with a reticent interviewee. (Not that I blame Nick at all. It was another long-suffering situation.) A rather high number of ‘I don’t know’ answers. Saying Paris was a terrible place to play. How badly he’d been treated. Poor equipment. When it got to Maynard’s dialogue, I thought I’d die! “Want me to show you how I acted?” “Did you write it yourself?” 😀 I laughed so much… 😀 I realize he’d just come out of rehab in September and was probably not feeling that great anyway but that look in his eyes said, ‘if I have to sit here for bloody 40+ minutes, I am going to fuck with you as much as possible.’

    @Deb, yep! 😀
