What do you think would happen if there were no drugs, music wise. I personally think Reggae wouldnt exist (all reggae I've heard mentioned pot). Jimi Hendrix's lyrics wouldn't be NEARLY as good.

Disclaimer: I actually don't do drugs, never have, probably will someday (who wants to wake up 80 years old and realize its something you never go to experience?). So don't ask me about drugs, truthfully I only know the government propaganda known as Health Class.

Yep, because discussing music is the same exact thing as discussing drugs and only drugs.



Stop being a dick.

Anyways, look at it this way - many classical musicians had substance issues. Alcohol and opium were pretty major.

This topic isn't directly about drugs, but the influence that drugs have had on music over the years. Therefore, I think it should stay in the pit. (Unless there is a better forum)

But I agree, drugs have played a big part in the music industry. I'm not too sure about the influence it has had on modern rock/alternative though.

anyways, in my personal music, the good stuff in music started when the drug scene started, it's a major creativity sparker, but it can ruin your life, and the good musicians either die or burn out...

I don't think music pre-1920 would be that different. One of the things I've always appreciated about composers like Beethoven is that not only are their compositions more complex, less repetitious, and simply more skillful, but the artists didn't write the music while they were high, and their mind was altered to that extent. That being said, I still don't refuse to listen to music written by someone who was high at the time. I'm a huge fan of Syd Barrett, The Allman Brothers Band, and Santana. Much of their music was written while they were high, especially Barrett's.

yes... I meant sugar

Also, wouldn't the music be better to an extent? Seeing as there wouldn't be musicians dieing from the drugs.

ya know that they did have drugs before the 1920's, and there were some musicians that used it. theres just not the synthetic drugs we have now like meth and acid.

QFMFT.

Yeah, classic rock and that era had a lot to do with drugs. But I dont really think its as big of an issue/deal anymore. At least in metal, i know there are very few stoner bands. maybe in other genre's there's more, but idk.

I suppose, but I really never have thought of Marijuana as a drug, so to speak. I really think something that's as natural as marijuana really can't be called the same thing as something being made by scientists in laboratory's. I also used Beethoven as an example because he was very picky with the medicine he took. Their was some medicine that he refused to take (I think he refused to take painkillers, even though doctors thought he should) because he wanted to keep a clean mind for his composing.

its not the drugs that makes someone great, its the life experience. for example many of you people dont like staind i do, hes had a ****ed up life and he was once a drug abuser, but songs didnt come to his head becuase of drugs. drugs will only get you a pink elephant and many colors to look at. its the life experiences you have and how drugs make em worse or inspire them to make them see how bad they really were,and thats why personally i dont like hendrix, he may have been amazing but that wasnt him it was heroin in flesh and blood.

about the different effects, it almost killed me once, and no im nto over reacting belive me i was afraid, but thats just over now and i have a open mind about it but i just personally hate them, although i respect the people that take it

I think that certain drugs may reduce inhibitions in a way that facilitates sorts of playing/writing that aren't normally done (for instance, I'll very rarely write free-form rhyming lyrics sober) but besides that they just provide another topic to write about.

Of course, to me it seems like sometimes there's a correlation between creativity and recklessness (substance use/abuse included).

Some psychedelic drugs do occasionally produce what's been termed "profound life changing spiritual experience" though and that's certainly something that could induce musical creativity.

ive never taken drugs, but i think what they do is just open ur mind. like, i'm sure that if some of those musicians weren't high, but opened their mind and were inspired by the same things when they were high, they would stil make the same music. being high just makes it easier for them to see something in a certain way. see, the human brain is a magnificent thing, but we just don't use it as much cuz we always focus on one aspect and we're so used to looking at things in one way, but we never just try get the big picture, shake it, turn it upside down, and then look at it again and try to interpret it.

I think some beautiful song were written after they just got clean. So I guess drugs played a part there too in a positive sort of way.
