I think I'm the only person to have a Billy Mackenzie from The Associates tattoo on my upper arms.

The first one is of the man himself, the late, great Billy Mackenzie and the second is lyrics from the song Sayline Drips which read, "You Say Life's Life no matter how its lived, And what you have you dont know how to give."

I had them done around 2-3 years ago and was supposed to be showing them to Billy's younger brother Jimmy, but sadly he also is no longer here. I got to know Billy through Jimmy as I used to hang around with Jimmy.
