I always thought they more into amphetamines. I read something Reed said about never having used heroin when he wrote the first album and that during his time at the Factory he used to take so many amphetamines he only slept for 3 hours a week.

I think drugs have defo influenced some of the greatest music of all time. Has anyone noticed how downhill the Chilli Peppers have gone since they cleaned up? And Marilyn Manson?! It's sad to admit I guess but drugs give you a different view in the world, make you think in a different way. They're called mind opening for a reason. I listen to rock/metal and I smoke weed but that's not why I smoke weed. I smoke it cos I like to be mellow and rock music helps with that too. Just like some ravers take E - it gives you energy and they need it dancing to that music! (I would never take anything chemical myself) So I suppose different genres do go with different drugs. I wonder if any composers like Beethoven were on drugs?...

i like to take exstacy to the happy mondays and certain tracks off hail to the thief.

smoke weed to sigur ros and radiohead again. oh and do nitrous oxide to radiohead. nothing compares to that, i once did a whippet standning up listening to sit down stand up and during a fast bit i passed out and fell into my dogs water bowl.

Have you heard Atom Heart Mother?
A total dogs dinner of an album I have a feeling if it wasn`t for drugs that album would be very very different.You never know it may have even been better (no really difficult in the circumstances.

As for the drugs are better arguement i`d like to throw this in....

Frank Zappa - Drug free & teetotaller his whole life.

Britney Spears & Robbie Williams - Currently in rehab.

I doubt Britney Spears has much artistic control over her music, and I doubt she has the talent to make it also. I agree though.

I am curious, though, what role did Roger Waters play in the band prior to Barrett's death, guitarist?

Ok another question: Have the actions of any particular bands/artists influened your views and behaviour regarding drugs? Have you taken any drug or acted a certain way specifically because a famous person has?

Link the drugs to the music, put as many genres of music as you think is applicable:

Weed
Ecstacy
Amphetamines (such as speed or base)
Cocaine
Ketamine
Heroin


Really appreciate your help on this, keep the replies coming!! Sarah.

Definitely punk rock. Its probably part of the reason they were all so damn aggressive.
