Jay Reatard

"Jay [Reatard] Lindsey did not want to play the show. Why?

He is rich now and likes to remind people of that fact. My favorite quote by him: "You know how much money I have in the bank!" Actually, Yes; $250,000 courtesy of Matador Records.
He got paid almost Four times the Dallas guarantee in Austin the night prior.
He had been doing coke for 12 hours straight.
He had not slept in two days.
He left to go buy $55 worth of LSD."[Parade Of Flesh]
