Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder has no regrets about his lengthy addictions to heroin and crack cocaine, despite not being able to remember most of the last 30 years.
The 44-year-old, who has now quit drugs, started taking them in his early teens.
He says, "Regretful? Am I f**k. No chance, no chance.
"They were great times. I can't remember any of them, mind. If you handed me some photos, I wouldn't know where I'd been.
"My memory's f**king bad now, which I'm probably thankful for. I can remember stuff from being under 13, and from 13 onwards, it's just a f**king blur."
