IS BRIAN MOLKO MY LUKE SKYWALKER?
I sent my mom this picture of Brian Molko from Placebo and said "Look! it's like if I had a twin or if you had a kid between me and Lawrence!" My friends had always teased me that Brian and I looked almost identical, and even once when I met him pre-phone interview at a party he said "It's nice that I'll be able to put a face to the voice," to which my friend replied "You could put your own name to the voice! You guys look like twins!" Then someone at their label kinda freaked out when they saw me and him standing in the same sight line.
My Mom called me just now and was asking about him, what does he sing, do i like the band... and goes "is he egyptian jew? where is he from?" I told her Luxembourg and she said she had a doctor friend that was an Egyptian Jew with the last name Molko from Luxembourg.
So I kinda freaked out. What if I have been lusting after someone I'm related to for the past 10 years?! Oh my God. I told her I had a meeting and had to get off the phone to prevent hyperventilating.
I wikipedia'ed the name Molko and found that it was derived from the name Molcho, which is in fact, a Sephardic last name.
If anyone reading this is friends/in contact with Brian, could you please direct him to this posting? Thanks!
For reference, here's a picture of me from last year. I'm on the left:
