El Nuge-o had a Wall Street Journal Column July 3rd: "The Summer of Drugs". I don't want future Rupert Murdoch lawyers to come after Gooooner, but here's some vituperative crossbow shootin', blonde bimbo mackin', ho-made deer jerky eatin' memories:
I literally had to step over stoned, drooling fans, band mates, concert promoters and staff to pursue my musical American Dream throughout the 1960s and 1970s. I flushed more dope and cocaine down backstage toilets than I care to remember. In utter frustration I was even forced to punch my way through violent dopers on occasion. So much for peace and love. The DEA should make me an honorary officer.
I was forced to fire band members and business associates due to mindless, dangerous, illegal drug use. Clean and sober for 59 years, I am still rocking my brains out and approaching my 6,000th concert. Clean and sober is the real party.
