Alexander Curly (echte naam: Harm Douwe Breemer) wordt in 1946 geboren in Haarlem. Hij werkt eerst als steward bij de KLM en speelt in de jaren '60 in de band De Maestro's.

In 1972 gaat hij solo en wordt hij opgepikt door Chiel Montagne. Hij scoort prompt een nummer 1-hit met I'll Never Drink Again, dat het twee weken bovenaan volhoudt. In 1973 volgen drie Tipparade-noteringen, maar in 1975 is het weer raak: het Nederlandstalige Guus (over koeien die op springen staan) eindigt eveneens op 1 (drie weken).

In 1976 wordt Curly onderscheiden met de Zilveren Harp.

Halverwege jaren '80, met vijf hits en evenveel Tipparade-noteringen op zak, keert Curly de muziekwereld de rug toe. In 2012 wordt bekend dat hij op 4 juni is overleden aan prostaatkanker.

Songtekst

Good morning morning, what did you say
Sure I feel strong and healthy today
I know my face looks almost green
It's quite interesting where I've been

God I don't remember where I went
Or how much money I must have spent
I don't suppose that it was a bit
Still got a feelin' that I am going to vomit

I'll never drink again
I'll never smoke again
My throat is dry, my eyes are red
And there are nails inside of my head

I'll never drink again
I'll never smoke again
I'm sick of cigarettes and beer
I'll stick to booze blues, oh dear

My head is turning around, don't make a sound
Who was that girl, what was her name
Well it don't matter, 'cause they are all the same
She had a smell of garlic, how could I be pleased
She could have surprised me with a disease

I'll never drink again
I'll never smoke again
My throat is dry, my eyes are red
And there are nails inside of my head

I'll never drink again
I'll never smoke again
I'm sick of cigarettes and beer
I'll stick to booze blues, oh dear

My head is turning around
Don't make a sound
Don't make a sound

I'll never drink again
I'll never smoke again
My throat is dry, my eyes are red
And there are nails inside of my head

I'll never drink again
I'll never smoke again
I'm sick of cigarettes and beer
I'll stick to booze blues, oh dear

My head is turning around
Don't make a sound
Don't make a sound

I'll never drink again
I'll never smoke again
My throat is dry, my eyes are red
And there are nails inside of my head

I'll never drink again
etc.
