boyhollow on his five favorite Lipgloss guest DJs
Denver3.com Andy Rourke at Lipgloss April 2006.
2. Andy Rourke (The Smiths)
Andy was also an easy choice. He's deejayed for us numerous times, five or six, I think. He's an incredibly nice guy, and I have a ton of stories about him -- from partying with him in Denver to partying with him in NYC, from passing out with him in his hotel bed while drinking a bottle of vodka and watching infomercials to Andy autographing one of my best friends with a sharpie so he could get the signature tattooed. But I think my favorite story is the one where Andy and I went to an after-party here in Denver after one of his gigs at Lipgloss. The taxi we called was taking forever, so we accepted a ride back to Andy's hotel from some dude at the party. On the entire ride to the hotel, the guy kept saying what a huge fan of the Smithereens his dad was since he couldn't seem to get straight that Andy was actually from the Smiths. About two blocks from the hotel, the car got a flat tire. The driver started crying because he didn't know how to change it. Andy and I got out of the car and changed his tire for him. Both of us were piss-drunk and exhausted, but we couldn't stop laughing the whole time. If you ever meet him ask about golden showers in a really bad British accent, he'll look terrified for a moment or two, but he'll laugh once he gets it!
