Primal Scream Star Boasts Of Ping Pong Coke Habit
Primal Scream rocker Bobby Gillespie is set to shock British TV viewers by boasting of taking performance-enhancing drugs - to play table tennis. The singer told a late night music show, set to air tonight (28JUL06), he used to be hooked on cocaine because it improves his bat and ball prowess. Speaking on Channel 4's TRANSMISSION WITH T-MOBILE programme, the 42-year-old recalls, "I used to do loads of cocaine. Me and my mates used to get sniffed up and play table tennis at my house. That's the way to do it. "Put lines on the table and then you can do those Japanese top spins and back spins right. "Cocaine and table tennis - it's a great recreational activity. That's when I'm at my best."
