No More Boozing For Casablancas
Bandmates relieved that frontman has quit the bottle...
Julian Casablancas' bandmates are over the moon that their frontman has quit boozing.
In an interview with New York Magazine The Strokes said their darkest days were in 2004 when the singer was drinking heavily. "Julian's become a lot more communicative since he quit drinking," said drummer Fabrizio Moretti.
And guitarist Nick Valensi added: "Julian quitting drinking had a big effect on the dynamic of the band. Instead of the four of us excluding Julian and getting together and venting and airing our concerns, he's a part of it now. He's a lot more approachable and communicative. He's letting us know what's on his mind."
