And "Hurricane" Higgins died very young too, at just 61.

Yes, but look at Dracula, Rex Williams, Cliff Thorburn.

Edit : To be fair, the ones that had a reputation for hellraising/drinking pretty much died early. Everyone else seems to be fine, although to be fair many of the 80's mob are only just making it into their 60s, which is when the alcohol really seems to hit. It doesn't seem common for hardcore drinkers to make it into their 70s.

I actually find it amazing that he could handle that much liquid, especially since it was in the 90's before beer started getting really strong.

Most alcoholics seem to have to abandon beer and move up a gear onto hard liquor because there is no way you can get enough alcohol into your system drinking lager.

According the Wiki article, he sometimes used to finish off the evening with a bottle scotch as a chaser!
