exactly, drugs and music go hand-in-hand....

I always wondered about:

The Gratedul Dead
The Doors
The Rolling Stones
The Beatles
Pink Floyd
Guns N Roses
Led Zepplin
The Yardbirds
Jimi Hendrix
Janis Joplin
Layne Stanley (God rest his soul!)

All kinding aside, there are far fewer musicians that don't do some sort of drug than ones that don't. IMO
Jimi hendrix came up with the song purple haze by having an acid trip

Because I wouldn't know Purple Haze was about acid, so I would have tried it and ended up in the situation you described. Good thinking champ.

The only drugs worth doing in my opinion are weed and mushrooms. Acid just ****s your head right up.

I think drugs and music go hand in hand, but you really need a balance. You also don't need drugs to be a great musician; there was a whole straight edge movement during the time of punk promoting the idea of being completely drug free. Drugs do, however, expand your perspectives and therefore enhance your creativity. The problem is that when you take too much, they start to kill it. Look at Syd Barrett for instance. Anyone seen any of his later live concerts with Floyd? He tripped so much he ended up getting on stage and playing random sounds from his guitar rather than the songs he was supposed to play.

Drugs and music? It's far easier to skin up on an LP than a CD. Unfortunately those days are behind me

Last time I got stoned was about two monthes ago and I had what I'm pretty sure was medicinal then walked around with some friends.

I put this song on and the lyric is "she won't start up" but I thought it said "she won't swallow" and I made everybody I was with listen to it with me and we thought it was the most hilarious thing ever.

Then this song came on and I was shaking my iPod. I thought the staticy sounding beats at the beginning were the iPod's response to me shaking it and I remember freezing and all the happiness draining out of me when I thought that I broke it. It faded away a moment later when the vocals started in and I laughed at myself.

Shit felt sooooo goooood.
