Default Musicians and drug use?

I don't advocate drug use, but I'd be lying if I said I've never consumed a certain type of plant species. As far as music, I find music so much more "enhanced" and "deeper" after smoking.

I don't mean to offend, I'm just wondering about what percentage of musicians would you say use drugs? Again, I am not suggesting a definitive correlation.

What do you base that off? Do you have any proof of the 1% that don't?

I take it you're from Toronto, or do you coincidentally have no idea who Holoscene is?

I don't know what "Holoscene" is, actually.

I would say 85 percent...take out certain Christian rockers and Ted Nugent and Gene Simmons and then there is the recovering addicts that play...like Aerosmith...but are we counting prescription drugs? If we are then 97 percent.

Well, I'd have to take the Bill Hicks angle on it all - most of our favorite bands wouyld probably have sucked without the drugs.... heheh
