"All the right Friends"

It`s pretty hard to keep track of Michael Stipes varying friendships.He`s got a "perfect circle of acquaintances and friends" I just wondered if Brian Molko from "placebo" was one of them? I know that they worked together on that "Velvet Goldmine"-movie. But are they...you know.."close"? Just trying to keep up with the news ;) Thanks.

Yeah sure. But here`s something to ponder... have a look: http://www.placebo.force9.co.uk/gallery/images/brian40.jpg

It looks friendly enough doesn`t it? ;)

-- Driver (Driver@i-mail.com.au), August 17, 2000.

yeah...i guess it does,maybe there was alot of money involved there!!!
