Talented, successful, creative and prone to the odd 128-hour binge? Music critic and Quietus founder John Doran turned his popular MENK column for Vice into Jolly Lad, a brilliant memoir about his attempts to deal with being a recovering alcoholic, curb his enthusiasm for narcotics and take control of his fluctuating mental health. He talks about why the music business and drugs seem inextricably linked, when partying goes wrong and how even the worst of times has a great soundtrack.
