"He did not know where he was, in Saudi, Dubai or Bahrain," he said.

What the hell is the difference?

"When he got up he was acting like a madman and then he crawled like a cat back under the blanket and went to sleep."

So...he got really drunk and suddenly could play guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and sing in a powerful, soulful and inexplicably high voice? And write some of the most amazing songs ever? And then part of him got more drunk and died in its sleep? And the remaining parts of him went their separate ways, enjoying moderately succesful solo careers? And then he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Wow. That's a hell of a bender.

I won't argue Zeppelin's reputation for excess, but I generally think of Keith Moon as the poster boy for rock star hotel room wreckage. He did invent television defenstration, after all.

I thought they cut off your wang for doing that kind of stuff in Saudi Arabia.

It's not our fault you're ingnorant.

So that's why they don't drink over there. Can't handle to booze too well.

Actually there is quite a diffrence. Saudi is alot more conservative then Dubai and Bahrain. No alcohol allowed in Saudi, but in Dubai and Bahrain you can drink just like in the states.

He jumped from the first floor, Now that's softcore!

If by "turn into Led Zeppelin," you mean "get really drunk," and if by "one-man," you mean "two guys," then this is entirely accurate.

Aha... Finally The Wrath of Khan

I've woken up in different states, but never in a different country. ...Unless you count the time I drank Tequila...or Jagermeister..

Did he blame it all on Elton John?
 
2005-12-09 01:03:40 AM
It took me a moment to realize that he didn't jump from the American first floor, he jumped from the British first floor, also known as the American second floor. In Saudi. Or was it Dubai? Bahrain?

I thought it was a mud shark entering a red snapper.

Heh...I actually don't know what kind of fish it was, that was just a caption from the good old days of CREEM magazine and their smartass captions. :)

Must have been terr-ism.

"When he got up he was acting like a madman and then he crawled like a cat back under the blanket and went to sleep."

I found that particularly hilarious.

<i> "We tried to wake him, but he was not getting up, so we had to throw cold water on his body," he said.

"When he got up he was acting like a madman and then he crawled like a cat back under the blanket and went to sleep."</i>

What the hell did they expect? That he'd hop out of bed and offer them tea and hummus?

"We saw glass falling to the ground, so we sent security staff to the room, but the door was locked from the inside," he said.

So in this hotel they usually lock the door from the outside then????

"Staff called police and the man was taken to Hoora Police station, where he was still being held yesterday, said Mr Khan."

Is the police station named after what the inmates yell when they bring in fresh meat?
 
2005-12-09 01:48:43 AM
Already said, but...more like a one-man Keith Moon.

/wait...

It's okay. I have a disease. I have..

Alcoholism

I'm powerless to stop it.

I live in Kuwait, too. There's a huge difference between the countries. HUGE.

Saudis tend to drink like college students. Going across the bridge on Bahrain at 4am Saturday, you're guaranteed to see a bunch of Saudis pulled over, puking off of the bridge. Bahrain's a quick drive from Saudi, where they've got hookers and booze.

Dubai exists for the sole purpose of providing booze, hookers, and pork to Kuwaitis and Saudis. Oh, and it's a big business center.

...The 26-year-old Saudi....

Religion of pissed?
 
2005-12-09 05:45:32 AM
MrJesus golf clap

On a side note, Saudis are pussies when it comes to a lot of things. Hells bells they needed a young Peter O'Toole to lead them to independence.

Anyone actually surprised by this? Anyone?

Saudis et al like to get as drunk as the next guy. I suspect the reason they act like such arses when they do get drunk is simply because they're on holiday, have never drunk in moderation and have no idea how much is enough. Throw in a large dose of cultural mysoginy and you can understand why bars in places like Thailand have prominent signs saying "No Arabs".

Yeh seeing as how the 2nd floor is the 2nd floor it should be refered to from here on out as te 2nd floor, not as the brits call it. It IS the 2nd floor not the 1st. GD brits.

They released him to go home and get the money!
