Alternative rock legend Evan Dando is supposedly living in squalor in his New York apartment, or so says a new US report. The rocker known for his work as the frontman for the band The Lemonheads, was due to perform a show with his ex-girlfriend Juliana Hatfield on 10th September, 2010, with a joint interview with 'New York Magazine' preceding the performance. However, the interview which was set to take place in Dando's apartment, was relocated to a coffee shop when Hetfield expressed that said apartment was too messy.

When writer Lizzy Goodman arrived at the apartment for the interview, she was met by Hatfield who explained to her: "I just got here, and I woke him up. You don't want to go in there. He's sort of living in squalor." After conducting the interview at a nearby coffee shop, the trio returned to the apartment later, with Goodman recalling various dirty items littered around the apartment. In addition to a "sticky sofa", the apartment contained: "a dingy stuffed tiger; an open bottle of Dr Pepper; a wad of cotton; several empty beer bottles; ...a charred tablespoon; a copy of Aleister Crowley's 'Diary of a Drug Fiend'; a Polaroid of Dando and his ethereally blonde estranged wife, Elizabeth Moses; a pile of plastic bags filled with substances; a crusty container of green sauce."

Dando, a struggling drug addict, was more than happy to talk at length about some of the items strewn around the floor, and discussed a photograph of the Cape Cod, Massachusetts location where his father and "macrame, LSD-damaged hippie" stepmother live together. He also pointed out a postcard from his dentist, telling Dando he was overdue for an appointment, with the last having taken place in 2003. Dando explained why he like his dentist, saying: "He's a groovy guy. He looks at your teeth and is like, 'Let's get you high.'"
