I guess it shouldn't surprise me, seeing the business they're in, but I was surprised to read the Neil, even in his later years, uses drugs?  I guess I would expect it from the younger guys, but I did find myself trying to read and reread the article trying to make the drugs seem like pot.

Not a huge deal, I guess, but I thought some here would be interested.

Oh, for those of you that don't want to read the article, any guesses on what drug Neil was doing in 2004?

That was an interesting read. If the cocaine story is true, it is a little surprising that this was going on as late as 2004. I don't know enough about this Brocklehurst character to question his veracity, but it is noteworthy that he's referred to as a "small time criminal, among other things..."

It's a highly unprofessional looking blog on blogspot.. lets keep in mind that there are fake roadie twitter accounts made by people who have alot of time on their hands.. I say you can even question the validity of the blog itself.

I doubt this is true. Regardless, it's none of our business. And I question how good of a friend he is posting this online for the world to read. Disrespectful of Neil, imo. And his line of (paraphrasing) 'I'm sure it's been said that drugs are not a stranger of Rush' is no excuse.

They admitted to doing pot during FBN-COS era and that one of them only quit in the 80s. As for hard drugs like Cocaine and LSD I would surprised if they didn't at least try it at one point. However, as for doing drugs in recent years I doubt it very much. It would be incredibly difficult to do drugs and maintain the form that they do night after night. My guess is that the shenanagians ceased by the mid 90s at the latest.

Look. They are affluent touring rock musicians. Of course they take/have taken drugs other than uncle Bob. FFS what's the problem? I'm a professional and in years gone by had a dabble or 2 with powders and potions. Did it affect my work? Nope. Did it affect my family? Nope. Nothing wrong with being chemically inconvenienced once in a while. I'm constantly amazed by this weird notion that Alex, Neil and Geddy are choirboys. Check out the clip of Alex on you tube pissed/stoned off his tits on the beach trying to play 2112!!
