Bez - Bez Moves To Hippie Commune

British rocker Bez has turned his back on his rock 'n' roll antics to live in a hippie commune in Wales.

The Happy Mondays percussionist became notorious in the 1990s for his hard partying with bandmate Shaun Ryder, but he has now quit his wild lifestyle for a more sedate existence on a farm.

The star, real name Mark Berry, has teamed up with several friends from his hometown of Manchester, England to buy a plot of land in south Wales, where they aim to grow their own food and become self-sufficient.

He tells Nme magazine, "It's a shared farm. You divide the work and try to become self-sufficient and live a community lifestyle rather than being part of the consumer culture. It's a gentle revolution type thing."
