He was dubbed as ‘Rocky O’Riordan’ and he spent the next 4 years recording and gigging. He added that the Pogues became very successful quite fast but his favorite memories are of those little pub as well as club concerts in early days, when the disorderly energy of both the band as well as their crowd still owed as much to Sex Pistols as to Dubliners. He left the band aged just twenty and over the next seventeen years he battled depression and addiction, finally picking up his bass again in the year 2003.Cait has also returned to school, getting a Master’s degree in Psychological Science in the year 2013 and he currently enrolled in PhD program at the UCD Smurfit Graduate School of Business.
