I was putzing around "5thavenueproject" on Youtube and what to my wandering eye should appear, but *gay gasp* Michael Alig interviews about his recent release from prison! have been following the story of "The Club Kids", not just the '96 murder of drug dealer Angel Melendez (the reason why Michael was in prison to begin with) since whenever E! made one of their "True Hollywood Story" specials about The Club Kids.
I really thought like James St. James and others that Michael was a sociopath as well. Michael did SOO much drugs that he went from a straight-edge kid from the mid-west to a person who really did become a monster. Narcissistic and a trouble-maker (in the sense that he was a trouble-maker when he was a kid), yes, but I don't personally think that he's a sociopath anymore. Micheal also had a bad history of being up for days doing drugs, and that will DEFINITELY make you bat-shit crazy. (The bad-shit crazy from no sleep part I can absolutely relate to and and insomnia can look like a serious chemical imbalance to those who don't know the person. Also the fact that Micheal got away with everything for so long would make you think he's a sociopath as well. Time will tell what the truth is once he's been sober and out and about in civilization.
Palladium, Nelson Sullivan, Michael Musto, Christina, Lahoma, Ru Paul, Peter Gatien, club Limelight and Tunnel, Club USA, and just about every club celebrity from NYC from back in the day where people were dropping like flies over AIDS or a drug overdose. Alig himself flatlined three times.
