  • "I did a lot of psychedelics. I went to Berkeley in mid-70s. Before that I was doing LSD in high school. It was the era. My favorite was peyote. It's the greatest. It's unbelievable. I was heavily into Carlos Castaneda, I don't know if he's still popular now, the Don Juan stories which I thought were amazing. There's a lot of mescaline and peyote in those.
  • It's these buttons that come off cactus that American Indians eat as a religious ritual and it's a very mystical drug. It's also kind of rough 'cause it can make you sick and you have to go through the sickness, and then you hallucinate. It's a very mellow hallucination, it's very powerful. You never panic. It's a wonderful thing. Anyway, I feel like that opened my mind to something. I have no regrets; I couldn't do it know because I'm too neurotic. I don't have the openness that I had when I was young. But it completely opened my mind to thoughts that are very important to me now.
  • And it's funny cause I was just reading this Steve Jobs biography, and he was doing all kinds of psychedelics, look where he ended up. I think it can be a very creative tool, it can open up your mind. It can be dangerous if you go too far. I'm all for psychedelics. I don't think there's anything wrong with them. I did mushrooms, you name it."
