Rolling Stone and James Bond chase pub loved by Dylan Thomas

LONDON (AFP) - A Welsh pub once frequented by famously heavy drinking Welsh poet Dylan Thomas might be bought up by a more modern hell-raiser, Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, a report said.
Brown's Hotel in Laugharne -- reputedly the place where Thomas gained the inspiration for his most famous work, the play for voices "Under Milk Wood" -- is up for sale later this month.
According to The Independent, the estate agent handling the sale has confirmed that a series of celebrities including Jagger have expressed interest in the building.
Another possible bidder was James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan, who the paper said was such a fan he had previously bought a bed used by Thomas when he stayed at Brown's in the 1930s and 40s.
Brown's Hotel remains largely as it did when the poet -- who eventually drank himself to death in 1953 -- frequented it, with his favourite table and chair still in the same place.
