‘Here’s a man who’s got everything and he’s getting up on stage only to fall a part,’  Nick Cave would tell Chris Bohn.  ‘He fucks up “Are You Lonesome Tonight” completely.  Sweat is forming on his face, his eyes are crazed with drugs and fear, like a trapped animal.  He can’t remember anything, so he tells bad jokes in the middle for which he has forgotten the punch lines.  But then he concentrates and manages to sing
“My Way”.  It was a truly inspired performance.  That’s what it’s all about if you ask me . . .
