Maybe we can make a game out of this and try to match the drugs used to music made.
Xanadu- LSD
Passage to Bangkok- Wacky tobaccy

Ok, what about the Time Stand Still video? some triple cocktail of something....

Triple cocktail of egregious video effects!
Don't watch that video on mushrooms.... Just sayin

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.



Yep!  Truth be told I am just like my mortal heroes.  RUSH!

I am also on drugs!  All the time!  It's true confession time.  Some of you over the 11 years of my existence here were always correct........

I do crystal meth every night to calm me down after a long night and early morning on the Rush Forum.

"Now I get up around whenever, I used to get up on time but that old man he's a real muthafukkka gonna kick him on down the line."

So then I get up around noon and shoot heroin like a loon.  Then I drink a pot of "Black Coffee."  Humble Pie right?  Followed by a six pack of ice cold Budweiser.
Snort a few lines of cocaine and then I get in my Audi and drive to work.

I'd be surprised if they had never done LSD and shrooms, considering the era in which they came up.

Alex has talked about doing Ecstasy.

They've probably also all done some coke, given the nature of the industry and the era in which they came up. In fact I've read second hand reports online that Neil had a coke problem at one point and has written about it (I've never read any of Neil's books).

I doubt they ever did heroin or PCP.

They obviously never got deep into the hard stuff (except perhaps for psychedelics in their early days).

Alex smokes weed like a Rasta to this day of course...

I guess it depends on what you call "hard stuff". Coke isn't hard?! It is to me. Ecstasy? Any drug that could potentially cause hyperthermia, diarrhea, or erectile dysfunction should be considered hard. Yes, I said "erectile dysfunction" and "hard" in the same sentence :P

Wow wtf??

So what if they did drugs, that is not important.

I actually did not know this at all, but I don't care.

As longs as they have quit by now(I am sure they have) that's all that matters.
