It seems like everyone from the 60s and 70s have commented on doing tons of drugs at one point in their musical career. I want to know if there is any artists around that time period that you know of who say that they have never done drugs. Are there any of them? I can't think of any.

Better than hooked on crack, I suppose. I'd rather know my kids are safe at home beating their meat than out in the world robbing old women for their crack fix.

keith richards, he apparently likes to snort his father, but made a fine pirate.

Not sure, I think the chili peppers have an anti-drugs rule within the band due to their past - that isn't really prescriptivist, its just for themselves.

I heard a rumor that he was so drunk while on the set that the director had to hold his legs together during filming so that he wouldn't fall over.

Frank Zappa may have been against drugs but who is still alive? Keith Richards or Frank Zappa?

Minor Threat?

They were in the 80s, but still...

Gene Simmons never drank or did drugs.
Metallica made an anti-drug song (Master of Puppets) but I'm pretty sure at least some of them have done drugs... Just LOOK at Cliff Burton hahaha!

iron maiden was against drugs, they drink but don't do drugs

Alcohol is a drug though...unless they were against illegal drugs

Quote by aaron6890
wrong time period buddy, theres a ton of bands now against drugs. he wants 60s, and 70s bands.

anyway, i think joe strummer was against drugs, same with i think pete townsend was after keith moon died.

Ah crap, sorry, ill delete my post

Anti-Flag! lol. They're mega-fags but make some good tunes. on at leeds

I think Bob Marley was anti some drugs. Rastafaria prohibits alcohol, theyre roman inventions is why.

alot of modern bands dont do so much drugs, but back then i think everyone did :S

Roger Waters. The members of Pink Floyd always bitched him out for never taking a drink or smoking pot. He shocked the hell out of everyone when he was offered a joint by someone who could make or break their career and he took a hit off of it. He hated drugs, but he knew when to play ball.

Edit: I believe Gilmour's account of it went something to the tune of "When he went to pass the blunt to Roger, I figured 'Well, hell, we're screwed, now' but Roger looked him dead in the eye and took a huge hit of it. He knew when to play ball."

I'm paraphrasing, more or less.

theyre vegan? dope.
this thread didnt seem to notice the time period tho..

perry farrell is against drugs, he used to be into them tho.. (janes addiction)

the smiths morrisey, although the bass player i think was into coke for a while..

afis drug free

again, im dismissing the time period stated.

Its pretty weird that no one is adamantly against drugs despite what has happened to countless rock stars.


Well...for me, it's a personal choice. I know how I want to live my life to be happy. If someone else wants to live their life with pot, then by all means, they should feel free. But if they end up busted or fucked up, they can't expect to bitch to me about it.

Well, obviously. Though, for me, I'd rather do drugs, have ****ty health, and be happy than live a long, miserable life. I've always hated being alive ever since I was little, so drugs are just a good choice for me.

Note: not the drug thread, so these are my closing thoughts on the matter.

exactly

there are alot of modern drug free/straight edge bands, like afi have been mentioned, im pretty sure thrice is drug free, i know paramore is, same with flyleaf, jimmy eat world is now i think, i think greenday is drug free too, same goes for switch foot, and red jumpsuit apparatus. also i can believe no one has mentioned guns n roses, minus axl of course. oh and i think, but i could be wrong, kanas was.

Bad health can get in the way of happiness.

Back on topic, Gene Simmons is against drugs. Now, Dane Cook (though many people on board hate him, and he's not a musician) is against all drugs.
