The drink is a cruel mistress that takes a hold on many a great talent. The likes of Dylan Thomas, Brendan Behan, Rimbaud, Baudelaire etc.etc. all succumbed to her promises of sweet oblivion and yet did not ever expound any negativity on their plights. Maybe it fuelled their inner creative demons to greater literary heights and maybe it eased a rollercoaster of a lifestyle that few ever really travaille. Shane is a current "Rider on The Storm" and fascinating to follow as he explores the inner demons that most of his critics are afraid to even acknowledge, let alone deal with, long may he ride!
