  • "People seemed to drink a lot, and certainly there was a lot of Methadrine around - a really evil and corrosive drug - and though at first LSD was looked down upon as a vestige of the hated Hippies - I took a lot of it myself when I was a psychedelicized thirteen-year-old runaway street kid - towards the end of my time in LA, around 1979, I seem to remember that people were taking a lot of LSD, which was a weird sensation coupled with the music of that time. I suppose I should point out here that I don't recommend drugs to young people, but then again, you have-though it's outmoded to mention it- something called free will, so you can fend for yourself."
