bill hicks

This comic is often cited by the lads as an influence. In 1998 Mark told the NME "It's all money and magazine covers and fucking revenue from adverts and shit and it makes me sick. Someone like Bill Hicks had a lot of influence on me when I was younger, opening my eyes to certain ideas and the way the world works. If he was still alive today he'd be disgusted." and Eds once said, "I've got a lot of respect for him - he said a lot of things many people were to scared to say."

He was an accomplished guitarist and formed a band under the name Marblehead Johnson, so you know where that name came from!
