I know nothing about the band Rewind or of James McElvar and had never heard of them prior to today. I am guessing that they aren’t doing so well financially after reading this story. How could a rock star not afford £45? I work a dead end job and could probably find £45 under the seat cushions in my couch.
To avoid paying a luggage fee this Einstein put on 12 layers of clothes and ended up collapsing during a flight. Here is a list of what James McElvar was wearing to avoid coughing up gum money: 6 T-shirts, 4 jumpers, 3 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of sweat pants, 2 jackets and 2 hats. This of course caused him to pass out twice before the plane touched down in Glasgow where he was taken to a hospital.
It’s amazing what lengths people will go to save money for makeup and hair gel.
