Bela Lugosi’s DUI

The worst part about this story is, of course, that anyone would still get wasted and get behind the wheel:

Peter Murphy, lead singer of 1970s British goth-rock band Bauhaus, was being held in lieu of $500,000 bail after allegedly rear-ending a vehicle in Glendale, police said.

An eyewitness followed Murphy, 55, from Saturday’s crash at Central and Goode avenues in Glendale to the 3400 block of Barham Boulevard in Los Angeles because “he was afraid [Murphy] would kill someone with his driving,” according to Glendale police.

Murphy, who was in a Subaru Forester, reportedly struck a Mercedes about 11:48 a.m. Saturday at the intersection, then drove around the vehicle and entered the 134 Freeway, police said.

The second-worst part is that the lead singer of Bauhaus drives a Subaru Forester.

    The worst part of course is that mugshot. Meth is not your looks best buddy Peter
    of course a slick defense lawyer will use Pter’s Sufi religion stating he was in a stat of Mazjoob 😉
    (Majzoob refers to that state of being immersed in the inner plane and divorced from the outside world. – from Wiki)

    And the Subaru probably isn’t even black. And what the heck is he doing out at 11:45 am in the first place. Undead, indeed.
    He and Bauhaus did a great show at “The Government” (I think) in 98.

    Allmost as bad as the singer from SFH driving a VW Beetle.
    But I look at that pic and keep thinking “undead..undead…undead.”

    I hear they caught him “In the Flat Field”… Perhaps he had too much “Hair of the Dog”… or maybe it was a “Double Dare”…

    as “Fight the Right” people, this interesting fact:

    “The company Temmler produced methamphetamine under the trademark Pervitin and so did the German and Finnish militaries. It was also dubbed “Pilot’s chocolate” or “Pilot’s salt”.[100] It was widely distributed across rank and division, from elite forces to tank crews and aircraft personnel, with many millions of tablets being distributed throughout the war.[101] Its use by German Panzer crews also lead to it being known as “Panzerschokolade” (“Panzer chocolate” or “tankers’ chocolate”).[102][103] More than 35 million three-milligram doses of Pervitin and the closely related Isophan were manufactured for the German army and air force between April and July 1940″

    The sad part (nothwithstanding he got behind a wheel)…is that they found METH on him. You`d think he`d know better not to try that stuff. Big difference between smoking flowers and doing smack. Geesh.
