Well I don't know what Julian was on last night in Houston but he was absolutely trashed. He needed to hang onto the microphone to stand up. Between songs he would stumble back to the drum stand to drink who knows what, His comments to the crowd were incoherent and at one point he put his head down in his armslike he was ill. The rest of the band members looked incredibly tense, watching him like babysitters wondering if he was going to finish. I'd say his drug and alcohol demons are alive and well.

Oh god. What is he doing to himself? Why is no one stopping him?

Gosh, I wanna save him. Obviously someone should and no one is bothering to.

Julian is a rockstar. Let him do drugs, and stop criticizing him for it. At least he makes good music. Actually, you guys probably like him because of his music which was probably a product of some amazing high.
Now shut up and go smoke a bowl.

The strokes r my favourite band in the world, they obhiously don't care bout their fans if they let their lead singer go on stage. This type of stuff makes me want to stop listining to them

The rest of the band obviously doesn't like him enough to help him lol...but I agree with most of you on here. As long as they keep pumping out fantastic records, I'm gunna keep buying them...but he really SHOULD take the fans into consideration before he acts that way. They paid to see a charismatic, arrogant rockstar, not a coked out mess.
