this. totally this.

rock star addicts only seem to be more prominent because they draw mass media attention prior to their collapses

Depends on what you define as drugs.

Including only illegal drugs, I'd say around 70%

The other 30 being straight edge, country pop, christian rock, indie, progressive metal. My god, sober people make really sh*tty music.

I am assuming you're just completely omitting any "old school" hardcore, like SS Decontrol and the likes? That would make up for a decent amount of musicians, even though lots of them ending up "breaking edge." Still, the anti-drug bit was their driving force.

I'd like to see any jazz soloist play high.

Drugs = good for improvisation
Drugs = bad for anything in 7/8

I'm pretty that it would also mess up any live show. How many videos have you seen of hair metal singers or whatever else so drunk they can't even remember the lyrics? This is why I am against substance abuse. It's just ridiculous, and yeah jazz is too crazy to have all these coked out or whatever else people hopping around stage or in the studio.

What on earth made you think these genres were drug free? Especially indie. And Straight-Edge hardcore can be awesome.
