Sebastian Horsley was a freak of nature. And a damn good one. He was a known dandy (although too excessive to really fit the category), the first westerner to be crucified in the Philippines and a confessed class A drugs and prostitution addict.

He died from a drug overdose, at the age of 47, in June 2010 but left us with is “unauthorized autobiography”, “Dandy in the Underworld”. A must read.

Enjoy the Interview. A sneak peak of Sebastian’s wit.

Personal favourite bit:

“I: You said you spent 90% of your money on prostitutes and 10% on class A drugs?

S: No!

I: It was the other way around?

S: No!

I: So, what’s the equation?

S: I didn’t spend it. I invested it!”

Pure genious.
