Addicted to painkillers and cocaine
Current wife filing for one
A grotesque caricature of his sleek energetic former self
But the crowds keep turning up
Oblivious that this could be the night he checks out permanently
Fans were becoming increasingly voluble about their disappointment
Unaware of the amounts of pills and powder Vegas Mally was consuming
His face was framed in a helmet of dyed black hair from which sweat sheets down over pale swollen cheeks
One more performance Vegas Mally.
Just one more.
