Allegedly Andy Rourke had an affair with another woman, which isn't that surprising. Heather left Andy as he hurt her too much. Andy Rourke now goes out with Francesca 'Fran' Mor who is a lovely person.
Heather Street was just a small young girl, 20 years younger than Andy Rourke. Heather was only 17 years old when she first met Andy, she is half his age. Andy was in fact old enough to be her father. Heather reminds me of Paris Hilton, rather than Portland's vegan stripper.
Andy Rourke's new girlfriend Fran is a wonderful, classy, intelligent career woman. She is older than Heather. I hope Andy & Fran get married and have children.
The Andy/Heather, Rourke/Street era is over folks! It's been over since 2009!
I think it's sad that the singer Rowetta doesn't much like Morrissey or The Smiths but she thinks Morrissey's lyrics are ok. Sadly Rowetta was really rude to me when I met her in Manchester once.
But Rowetta can sing good though.
I love Rowetta's version of Etta James' "At Last". I bought Rowetta's debut album because it had a good mix of songs on it. I voted for Ro when she was on 'The X Factor' back in 2004. I liked "G4" who were a four-piece British vocal troupe, who first came to prominence when they finished second in ITV's talent show 'The X Factor' back in 2004. I love soul music, jazz and female singers. Rowetta reminds me a bit of Diana Ross in a way because she has similar hair.
I thought Rowetta was good in the tour of "The Songs Of Sister Act".
Rowetta is a good, close friend of Andy Rourke.
I don't like the 'Happy Mondays' as people much though, their music is ok, but their scene is way too edgy, nasty and hard for me. Andy Rourke was part of that bad Happy Mondays party scene back in Manchester. I don't like punk rock music at all. But I know Rowetta likes punk rock music. I think Rowetta sees herself as a bit of a 'punk rock' chick.
Rowetta says she wants to be known as a good singer, a good mother, a good cook and known for looking great for her age. And at 46 I think she still looks pretty good and Ro wears quite trendy, stylish clothes.
This is the first video I could find of Rowetta going off to 'Passages' in Malibu (which is a rehab centre for alcohol and drug addiction). I think this was back in 2009:
In this video Rowetta checks into 'Passages' in Malibu:
In this video Rowetta reveals her tragic, painful past. Rowetta had an unstable childhood (Rowetta came from a broken home). In this video Rowetta reveals that her ex-husband Noel 'Des' Satchell beat her and abused her when she was still just a teenager:
In this video Rowetta has 'Hypnotherapy', which worries me a lot! I'm a born-again Christian and I believe that hypnosis is NOT a force for good! And that it is NOT compatible with 'Evangelical Christianity'. I think 'Hypnotherapy' and 'Mind Control' are wrong:
I think this song "Rosetta" sort of fits Rowetta. GEORGIE FAME & ALAN PRICE - "Rosetta" (1971):
In this video Rowetta and the glamour model Alicia Douvall work on their relationships with their daughters who are called 'Georgina' and 'Georgia', in this segment of the U.K. reality show, "Rehab." Rowetta talks about life after 'Passages' and we see Rowetta's relationship with her beautiful daughter Georgina:
These 5 videos have helped me to understand Rowetta a bit better. I pray Rowetta will become a Christian and know the love God and Jesus have for her!
Surprisingly Rowetta is a 'Joy Division' fan. Rowetta also likes the punk rock band 'Crass'. This is a video of Rowetta singing a Joy Division song with her good friend Peter Hook ('Hooky') who has also had his own battle with drug and alcohol addiction. The group is called 'Peter Hook and The Light' (featuring Rowetta) and the song is called "Atmosphere":

If Andy Rourke is now 48 years old. That makes Heather now 28 years old. I thought Heather Street must of been related to Stephen Street and was maybe his daughter. But I found out they aren't related. Stephen Street is Southerner from London and Heather is from up North from a place called St Helens. I thought Heather looked older than her age. Heather wears very trendy clothes and wears quite a bit of make-up which makes her look older. Your right she has that Paris Hilton celebrity look about her. She seems very confident for a young girl. It's strange but I think there is a road/street in Manchester called Heather Street.
For Scarlet Ibis. The "Scarlet Ibis" bird is a species of 'ibis' in the bird family 'Threskiornithidae'. It inhabits tropical South America and islands of the Caribbean. In form it resembles most of the other twenty-seven extant species of 'ibis', but its remarkably brilliant scarlet coloration makes it unmistakable!
So where in "The Big Apple" does Rourkey live?
Iona Mink you are the best!

Nova Rehman once shouted at me with such force and with real hate in voice. It happened in a nightclub in Manchester back in 2008 at a 'Versus Cancer' event called 'Thanks, Pranks and Party Pants!' on Friday, May 23rd, 2008 at 'The Ritz' nightclub in Manchester. I went up to Nova to wish him a happy birthday (as it was his birthday) and he shouted at me to "Get out the way" with such of force and hate in his voice, while him and a gang of men were bullying one young man who was on his own. They were trying to usher the young man out of the nightclub I think, trying to remove the young man by force out of the club. Nova was at the front of the gang of men, the leader of the gang.
I was in shock and I started to cry I still feel trauma even now from what happened.
I wonder where the young man is today? I hope he is alright. Poor guy nobody deserves to be treated like that.
In another club in Manchester at another 'Versus Cancer' event also in 2008 but earlier on in the year. It was at the 'after show party' at a club called 'Moho Live' in Manchester on Saturday, February 23rd, 2008. Nova gave me the 'evil eye'. Which was about him wanting control/power over me. It was also to try to intimidate and frighten me.
I wanted a safe place where I could express my feelings about Nova. At one time years ago, I even wanted to be friends with him. That was before I knew what he was really like. Nova hurt me a lot! Nova lacks empathy and compassion for people which is very worrying.
Oh dear! I'm worried I think I wrote too much about Nova. I still find him very frightening. I got carried away and I was maybe too harsh on him. As a businessman Nova is honest I think and as a businessman he has done well for himself. But being 'good' at business doesn't make someone a 'good' person! Nova is a man who feels he needs to be in 'control'.
I forgive Nova Rehman for what he did to me. I must forgive him so I can move on! As Christians we are told to 'love our enemies', to 'forgive' and to love the 'sinner', but not the 'sin'. I pray for Nova that he will know Jesus' love and become a Christian. Prayer is very powerful!

He's in the phone book.
I would be interested to know what Andy Rourke and his crew did to Nick Swisher. This is Nick Swisher's Twitter account:
