He did an appearance on Friday Night with Jonny Woss a while back.

He seemed sober and coherant at the time, like he was really clean. It was very nice to see actually.

Eric Clapton, he also continued to make successful music after rehab.

Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, missed a whole tour due to rehab around the No Code album.

Jimmy Chamberlain of The Smashing Pumpkins got booted out of the band due to drugs, missed an album (Adore), brought back for Machina after cleaning up.

Basically, amateurs.

Rehab's for quitter's, and no one likes a quitter.

You have to be pretty idiotic to have to have someone to tell you something you should already know.

werd ****ing quitters.

And that led to the greatest grunge band of all time. Mad Season. Hell yeah.

Also Anthony from RHCP. And then again. And then again. And then again. And then again. I'm still waiting for the next relapse.

kurt cobain

Kurt never quit.

However, Elliott Smith went to a very unconventional and probably malpractice laden rehab. When he died, there weren't even any drugs in his system.

I'm pretty sure Miles Davis and John Coltrane also went to rehab.

And Cris Kirkwood from the Meatpuppets.

Oh, and when Brad from Sublime OD'd, that was his first time using heroin in a few months after going into rehab.
