I'm always puzzled when I read about artists in control of their intake.
I think very few can keep the beast at reasonable distance while going the distance.

Yep. All you have to do is just a little research to learn of the many great musicians who left us too soon because of that beast - the amazing Jimi, the powerful Janice, and the beautiful Mr. Mojo Risin to name just a few.

I googled musicians lost to drugs and found a Wiki site listing them through the decades. Sad, very sad indeed sad

Uh..me.... biggrin I thought I was getting away with something by drinking beer and Boone's Farm. LOL



lol lol lol Well girl, I came from a small-town upbringing and made sure I tried out everything I could. That is the way people were back then for the most part. I am near P's age and can completely see him wanting to experiment with stuff like that....just like he did with sex wink All part of the growing up experience at that time. When were you born?


100% agree, especially as the harem vulture I am...

Freaking bankers & accountants were dropping acid then. What Studio 54 was all about. Doesn't mean everyone became an addict. Especially when we're talking psychedelics.

The cocaine that followed was another story. And of course, ALCOHOL remains the most accessible (and legal) addictive drug that ruins lives all over the place, probably since it was first concocted.

Well....I wasn't actually pointing the "harem vulture" finger at you poppys - was just stating my position on fending off attacks from that crew smile

All very good points. Alcohol is just as bad, as it can be a very long and slow killer sad

You are the Queen of the Harem Vultures! lol lol

Blotter Acid - The art was amazing.

Back then we all knew you couldn't become addicted to acid.

An acid trip is not like you see in the movies.

Even if not addictive, I would imagine if you're doing it everyday, or on a very constant basis, it would probably get in the way of being productive smile

but i guess people will still try to dismiss ANY drug use.....

I don't think anyone's "dismissing" it, but it was extremely common, especially in Prince's generation, to have tried or occasionally used drugs in one form or another. This in no way translates to him being a "regular" drug user - at least not back in the earlier years. If he had been using acid or another similarly potent drug all the time he would not have had the career he had. No way.

good God..ask Eddie Murphy or their bitch ...arsenio

Yes, and the same guy who, during his 1990 RS interview stated he "didn't really know Kim Basinger that well" after just spending 6 months at PP with her making the Scandalous Sex Suite lol

You could take that to mean he's trying to decide whether the embrace is better than a "trip" on drugs - as in comparing the two, or possibly wondering whether it's better because he'd never tripped on drugs.
