Somehow,he's managed to get to his 50th Birthday tomorrow (well,fingers crossed):
Shane," Smoking, drinking, partying - that's why I've stayed alive as long as I have. And I've got better with age, that's what's meant to happen.
I party my way through life, it's what I like to do. I'm even partying right now, only I'm doing it on my back. Booze is definitely good for your voice - it greases the whistle."
Did he ever expect to reach 50?
"To be honest, I never thought too much about getting to 50," says Shane.
"But if everybody is making bets that you are going to die at 4.30 tomorrow afternoon you just tend to think, 'F*** it, I'm not going to die as long as those f****** are alive.'"
