Yep.

Agreed.  I think that answer is right on the money.  Of course, that's just an educated guess, and I could be wrong.

Well, I for one don't belive this !

I did drugs with'in 5 minutes of getting up this morning, most people by Noon have "done Drugs"

I just drove into the grocery store yesterday & the word " Food & DRUG " was 30 feet high in neon on the side of the store,
So I went in & asked for some "Drugs", they pointed me where to go,
Boy, lot of "Drugs" right on the shelves.

Just my pet peeve

Should say instead . . . . "Did Rush Do Any Illegal Drugs"

Then we could talk about who decide's what is legal vs illegal.

My "defense" of the band is no different than the "defense" of the band by users.  They really really want the band to be users like they are, while myself and others want to see them as FORMER or INFREQUENT users, or maybe even completely drug-free.  We all create Ged in our own image.


Does it really matter to you whether they are FORMER or INFREQUENT users? How does that affect you if they are or aren't?

QUOTE
I'm about 98% sure that they don't PERFORM while under the influence of anything.  You can't accurately play music as complex as they do while drunk, stoned, tripping, etc.


Quite possibly, and I don't recall anyone here suggesting that they might perform while high....maybe they do though....who knows? who cares? You go to the show and are happy with their performance, that's what matters.

QUOTE
Really, two packs a day?  Do you hang out with him for days at a time?  How do you know this?


Ok, so lets say a pack a day, still FAR worse for you than the herb (like I said above). I though I've read that he smoked almost 2 packs, but I whatever....I don't really care. And sorry I can't provide you concrete evidence of that. You get my point though.

drunk most likey not, as a drummer it throws my motor functions off.
Stoned I can play all day

and maybe they do smoke a little before the show....of course it's possible. GeddyRulz is 98% sure they don't though. He sure hopes they don't, because if he ever found out they did he would be very disappointed in them.... rofl3.gif

Read Contents Under Pressure. There are a lot of quotes from them talking about drug use.
