Vines Bassist Only Drinks & Drugs Offstage On The Road

Australia’s Beat magazine caught up with local lads and bassist Patrick Matthews, who was asked how he copes with suddenly being thrust into the crosshairs of the world’s attention. “When you’re on the road you feel exposed to the full whirlwind,” he admits, rather unsurprisingly. “Once you’re off stage all you do is drink, and take drugs; but you have a lot of people around you – your manger, other guys in the band – and they become the real world. I guess it’s kind of claustrophobic, cos you don’t focus on the world out there at all.” has since removed the article.
