If you read the books on the ABB you will find what drugs they have used. In the late 60s and 70s drug use was socially accepted back then. Our culture reflected that.

Lately I think it's heart and cholesterol medication

I read somewhere that some of the early shows you could tell what was going around by how they played..a good example of that is the 9-16-71 show.I know that Gregs wedding present the night before was a big chunk of coke and I think Greg new wife (at the time said that they were all really sprung that night) and you can kind of tell by how long and how fast they played,Duane was pretty chatty (The begininng of you don"t love me) now I cannot remember if one of the guys that works on the archive stuff told me about how to tell (sort of)by listening..I understand why you got the reaction to your question that you did but I can also tell by reading all your posts in your profile you are not a troll. on the other I also know that there are two times they were really high on acid and that was the 2-11-70 show with the dead in the fillmore east and bill grahams memoirs he said that Mick Fleetwood was so high on acid that all he could do was sit on the speakers and say " the **** in grateful dead man...." over and over. and later at the cow palace new year gig( that is the 7 disk set show)Butch did not want to get dosed by the dead as they or their entourage "Bear"dosed everyone so he brought his own water and in the beginning of his drum solo the in Les brers the drums became big marshmellows and he couldn't figure out how he got dosed but then saw bear with a squirt gun shooting the lip of his bottle he had ,he said that he finished the solo on the side of the stage with a big grin on his face while Paul Riddle finished on drums...that I got from Leavells book.......I guess the truth is no one likes to advertise that,I know that I am a recovering addict with almost 13 years clean so it is touchy the one guy was right just read books....and other sources they will talk alittle about it if you are curious.....

If you're a recovering addict (and congrats on your 13 years clean) I'm curious on why you're airing somebody else's "pharmaceutical adventures"?

Truth is, the only thing that people should be concerned about in regards to the ABB, is the music they play. As far as their private lifes, people should let it be private.

In any case, all you're doing is feeding a troll. Don't believe me, go over to the Whipping Post and see what question he's asking over their.

To allmanfanfromsweden, whether or not people did or still do various drugs is really none of your damn business, and it's rude to ask them on a public forum.

You might want to read some books about The ABB... drug use is explained ... Red Dog's Book Of Tails... this is insightful into all their lives on a daily basis.. back in those days ( early) of the sixties... it was a festival of drug use ..for lots and lots of people .. it was the time of Love and Peace make Love Not War alot of changes in the world were happening..We had war Vietnam that almost everyone felt passionate about whether for it or not, equal rights, people of color, woman's rights, assassinations and the best damn music to hit the scene ... and the younger people were experimenting with all kinds of drug use...
It was good and bad times.... i guess like all times... but start reading more and you will get your answers...


I don't think you are a troll

treat people the way you would want to be treated...anything one does on a personal basis is personal business...and despite the media's BS, it is really none of our business..

Are drugs and alcohol a part of rock and roll ? Yes...
Are drugs and alcohol used by millions of people not in the music industry ? Yes

Would you question your insurance agent on his /her drug and alcohol use ? Probably not...

Just my two cents..carry on

Agreed. Given the band's history, it's a legitimate question. I think you would be best served by reading some of the books mentioned in this thread. The reason I think some people have a problem with this thread is that it may lead to speculation about some band members who don't have a public history of substance abuse. That is to say, discussing Gregg's history is one thing since its been public knowledge for decades. ( He's been clean for years as I understand it and I don't think he's ever sounded better.) However speculating on what Derek may or may not do, for example, is not fair since they can't really defend themselves.

Most definately!!!

Maybe things are different here in NJ, but insurance questionaires ask alot more personal questions than whether one uses drugs, that question is routine. I'd be happy to return the favor.

I think this is a legitimate topic, although I am sure I've seen it before. Cleaned up...you need to lighten up a little. Red Dogs' book goes on at length about drug use, it's up to you to decide whether it is an exaggeration or not. "Midnight Rider" told us that, while Gregg is "sober", he and Warren used to smoke a joint pre-show. This goes back to the early 90's. My personal opinion, which is purely speculative, is that Warren smokes, but he is way too productive and consistent to be drinking or using harder drugs to excess.

Well Macon,

Reddog not working for the ABB anymore, and I think that he might have been "let go" because of some of the things say in his book. As far as "Midnight Rider", we'll go over Butch's Forum and read what he has to say about that book. But the fact is, what Warren does in his private life is nobody's business but Warren. btw, Macon, what drugs do you do, remember this is a "public forum"?
