A Thai Rock & Roller’s Troubles

The Thai rock & roller, Sek LoSo, has had some well publicized troubles lately. He has admitted to being addicted to drugs, has been in and out of rehab, married, had children, involved in spousal abuse, divorced,  and then remarried his former wife again. Now they are talking about another divorce. All the typical problems of a lot of rock & rollers anywhere.

Note: The name Sek LoSo comes from his first name which is really Seksun (Just by chance the name “Sek” is pronounced similarly to the way Thais would pronounce the English word “sex”.) And “LoSo” is a play on the opposite of the Thai idiom “HiSo” for “high society” or “rich people”. In his case he is “LoSo” or “low society”.

Sek LoSo is like the Lindsay Lohan of Thailand for all the troubles he has been in. Here is a news story about his latest.
