The Streets rapper MIKE SKINNER reduced his drug intake after becoming terrified he would die "a rock star's death". The DRY YOUR EYES MATE hitmaker has determined not to let a narcotics addiction wreck his life. The 27-year-old says, "When you're an artist, you make an album and then you do what you like. "Most rock stars don't mean to die, there's just nothing to stop you carrying on taking loads of drugs."
