Casablancas' Drunken Performance

THE STROKES frontman JULIAN CASABLANCAS was so inebriated during a recent gig, he caused his guitarist to storm off in a rage.

According to the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS website, Casablancas was already drunk when he took to the stage at Manhattan's BOWERY BALLROOM, and promptly indulged in more alcohol - drinking during the set.

After stumbling off the stage, the singer rested in the arms of the crowd before security dragged him out.

Casablancas subsequently swigged from an assortment of drinks at drummer FABRIZIO MORETTI's feet, and halfway through the set, he started singing the wrong song - causing disgruntled guitarist NICK VALENSI to march offstage.

However, Valensi returned and a chastened Casablancas got it sufficiently together to finish the set.
