After reading a great book on bob dylan that detailed his extensive drug usei got to thinking, which 60s artist did the most drugs? My moneys on bob dylan.

I'm gonna have to say Keith Richards.

I don't think it's fair to say Syd Barrett...as his friends laced his coffee with LCD...so that wasn't entirely his doing.

That wasn't the only time he'd done drugs. And we're not talking about drug users who died, we're talking about drug users in general.

Jimi Hendrix?

Syd was a huge psychedelic drug user, such as LSD. One time he got high, non stop, for like 3 days straight and he locked his girlfriend in a closet for 3 days only feeding her biscuits that he shoved under the door.

Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

I know it's not, he was a huge drug user and he did so much he went insane. But it was friends slipping him drugs that really pushed him over the edge; he didn't do some of it of his own free will.

I read Keith's biography. That man did a lot of drugs. I don't think anybody off of that list could beat him. He needed 2 and a half grams of heroin a day to feel normal at one point.

Of the 60's? Morrison.

Overall? David Crosby. He's been to rehab more than any other musician.
#20
AHAHA i tricked you all.

After 1967 morrison rarely used acid. He always said alcohol was his drug of choice. He might of dabbled in heroin but nothing to major.

And yah i forgot to add some people, but thats bound to happen.

Id go with richards/dylan.

Jim Morrison was more of a drinker, why is he winning this poll? I'd say Richards probably takes it.

People probably think that Jim was a heavy drug user because of the way his music sounds.

But, Kieth was a HUGE drug user though you might not find much of a 'psychedelic' or drug influenced sound lots of his music.

Morrison was actually pretty heavily into cocaine for a brief period.

I don't know if I like the idea of this poll though, I love these musicians as much as anyone and psychoactive drugs are an area of interest for me to say the least, but it's probably better than we evaluate these individuals on their contributions to music instead of attempting to further glamorize their sometimes excessively indulgent lifestyles.

How could you not include Syd Barret?

I didn't vote because I know Barret was the biggest drug user.

How can anybody not say Hunter S. Thompson???

He is the worst than Barrett, Morrison, Richards, Page mixed!


Read his stuff. You'll know.

If you're gonna go the HST route, then don't leave out Ken Kesey...I mean, he did travel around with the Merry Pranksters and was the inspiration behind Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test.

Keef should be a drug by now...

But, after hearing pretty much all of Lennons solo albums...I can confirm that he was indeed doped out of his head for most of it...

Keef is most DEFinately a drug. Keef is just THC crystals.

A friend of mine scrapes the keef catcher in his grinder so infrequently that the stuff is literally caked onto the sides. I had to use a knife to scrape it off last time I cleaned it out for him. He doesn't like it, so he gives it to me and I sell it to my friends that use vaporizers.
