SNUFFY & RAB INTERVIEW June 28 2017

 

 

Snuffy has always been there for me during my hard times.
He’s always only a phone call away.
I am a recovering alcoholic, and in the old days I
used to get on my phone and call the ‘World’ at 3am….
I was in my Studio and I called Snuffy one time after 10 pints of the strongest Lager
and 3 bottles of Red Wine, then I was banned from every single Pub in
Grantham England, Snuff picked up and, thank God, told me to never, ever
call him when I was drunk. I was taken aback at 1st, then later on realised ‘That’ was exactly the right help that I needed…
I have been totally ‘Sober’ now for over 25 years, and I thank Snuffy for being there.
