Good Charlotte party hard in Europe

Good Charlotte find it hard to keep pace with the partying when they tour Europe.

The 'Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous' rockers like the relaxed attitude to consuming alcohol they find in Europe, but admit it can take its toll on them.

Bass player Paul Thomas said: "Drinking is always great fun and a great way to bond, who doesn't love it? You get a lot less flack in England for drinking, you can have a drink with your lunch over here and not get any funny looks.

"You really are too hardcore for most Americans, I drink so heavy over here when compared to in the US that I spend my days off just recovering!"

Paul also said the band has a relaxed attitude to people illegally downloading their music, and that it is an inevitable part of the future.

He added to website liverpoolconfidential.co.uk: "It doesn't really bother me, kind of like it, it means only the good music gets through because it makes the market so saturated. We aren't too old to be speaking to each other and sharing albums over computers. CD sales are not as important as they used to be, you can't fight the future."

Good Charlotte are part of the 'Kerrang Relentless Energy Tour' which is presently making its way across the UK.
