Hey guys, in resopnce to the "rockstars who didn't do drugs" thread, I started the "those who do hard drug threads" Obviously those who have died of an OD did hard drugs, so those stories are alright, but I'm just curious about those who are still alive and have lived their lives full of hard drugs and alcohol use


My suggestion is John Frusciante, not many times you leave a band in order to become a full fledged addict.

any other names?
#3
john frusciante was really bad, but there were also other musicians who were addicted longer than him. i think ray charles was addicted to heroin on and off for 20 years or something like that.

kurt cobain and layne staley also used a lot. Jimmy page also comes to mind, though he only used for I think about 4-7 years.

EDIT: Can't believe I forgot GnR and the stones. Put aerosmith up there too.

Steven Adler is really the most depressing case I can think of, but Froosh comes a cloes second. At least he still has a band :/.

Also, NOOO COREY I didn't know you were that close to the edge .

Slash was ****ed up until 2006ish and now he's been clean ever since. He was dead for 8 minutes on the UYI Tour also.

And Steven Adler is clean now for whoever said him but he was messed up for a long ass time.

And thanks to Megadeth behind the music I found out Dave Mustaine and done pretty much every drug.

he's still messed up. he OD'd on a speedball and it ****ed something in his brain up and now he talks with a speech impediment. im also pretty sure he isn't totally clean yet. he's been saying that same thing since his GNR days.

No he's actually clean now. And yeah he has a hella bad speech impediment (Celebrity Rehab FTW). He used to just flat out deny he did drugs at all until a couple years ago he realized he'd be dead soon from that ****. Slash worked with him on the new solo album and confirmed he was actually clean now.

Source?

I'm not doubting you or anything, but I thought LSD trips last for like 6-8 hours? How can someone trip 4 times a day? That would only be possible if they were tripping for about 24 hours a day...

I do realize syd got pretty messed up in the head, but still...
