    Many musicians have been influenced by drugs, but what drugs do you think helped create the best music?

    Sorry, Bear should be Beer. I put that one on there because of country and I guess thinking about country made me retarded.

    LSD because Eric Clapton did LSD when he was in Cream.

    LSD and Pot. Just look at the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Cream, any psychodelic rock band was jacked on that shit and all the music came out sweeet.

    I'm guessing either Alice In Chains because they had an album called Heroin, or Velvet Underground. :wtf:

    Wait a second.. the members of Pink Floyd took drugs?! This changes everything.

    Seriously though, they got nothin on Coltrane.


    On another topic.. someone on this site once said what the song Comfortably Numb was really about but I can't remember what it was..

    Fuck I forgot about Syd Barrett. Comfortably Numb does indeed ring a bell as well.

    It's about Roger Water's heroin addiction.

    Yeah well that's the obvious choice but I heard some other story that it was about.. can't remember what it was or who said it. They very well could've been bullshitting though..

    Pantera. I forgot about that. Phil (lead singer) did a lot of heroine in the mid-90s. The result: The Great Southern Trendkill. Their best album IMO. I heard he's on that shit again, but Panter is no more and Superjoint sucks so I don't think anything good will come from it now.

    This is why I don't get "straight edge" bands. It's impossible to write good music without doing drugs, or doing drugs before in your life. it makes you a better person.

    Nope (unless you have a dog named Jaco, that's pretty cool). Jaco Pastorius. He was one of the greatest bassists ever and a brilliant Jazz composer (and my avatar). He made it through about half of his carreer without doing drugs and still made amazing music sober. You're wrong.
