Tracks like Shine On can be the same fine when you are not stoned.

Drugs can enhance creativity, but usually donīt have this effect. Most of the times, they make you exaggerate in usage of effects, and sometimes they can really keep you from working. There are so many bands out there you prefer to get stoned instead of working, and thats sad.

In some special moments, though, when everything is perfect, when you would be very creative without drugs anyway, they can stimulate creativity even more. Anyway, Iīd prefer smoking on a party where I can shake me booty and not think about creating art.

Word is that drugs are uncool. Sometimes...
Have you ever tried to play stoned? It seems so amazing while you're doing it, then you listen to the tape the next day and realize you played a D chord for 95 minutes

i still disagree with all of this talk about drugs not making artists more creative. in the book "acid dreams: the complete social history of LSD: the CIA, the sixties and beyond," bob dylan talks about his music before and after he began using LSD. it's quite interesting.

I think drugs definitely influence the creativity of artists. And that influence isn't necessarily bad. After all, there's a lot of really great music that we probably wouldn't have if the artsits who made it had never done drugs. But I still think it's a misinterpretation to say drugs make artists MORE creative. And I'd still rather have some great artists around and risk hating them by now than have had them die prematurely as they did.

I've never been stoned either but I know
when I'm drunk, I become more emotional.
Like sad songs will make me cry or dance
music will make me dance until I sobber up
(for 3 hours once).


For the most part I like to listen to songs
"a la natural".

Ouch! I was being quite honest. I've heard it's rat poison. Can I please have my head back? You bit it off.

And there are a lot of naturally occuring things that aren't very good for you. Of course, the stuff your talking about isn't exactly rat poison, but just because something's "naturally occuring" doesn't mean it's not harmful.

BG84 you should provide the science behind how these drugs make you "more creative" - as in making the creative centers of your brain more developed, if you are going to take up this argument.

angeloflarrydom: mescaline is not found in all species of cactus. enjoy.

mr.brau1: forgive me. here's your head back. i even combed your hair for you.

hallelujah here she comes: i never said peyote wasn't harmful.

digi: i am not a scientist. nor did i ever claim to have scientific proof. if every post that was made here required scientific proof to support it's validity, it would be a very silent forum. i am basing all of my statements on my own personal experiences and statements made by some of the artists i listed before.

"i believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown" -jim morrison

"we were very fortunate to have a little time in history when LSD was still legal and we were able to experiment with drugs just like we wre doing with our music" -jerry garcia

"LSD opened my eyes" -paul mccartney

"music and herb go together" -bob marley

I know that one pretty well

On the other hand, a D chord can be played in many different ways... and its a nice chord

Anyway, I know and yīall better believe that drugs donīt make a production process more creative. The creativity is there from the start, or it isnīt. There are countless boring hits of the 80s, and artists were on bolivian marching powder such a lot those days.

I agree there are many examples of people tripping and painting Lucy. But on the other hand, take a look at Syd Barrett. Listen to the first LP of the Pink Floyd, and take into account that he was destroyed by tripping out too far.

Or do you think David Bowie would have been less creative without drugs? His music may have sounded different, but less creative - I donīt buy it. Take a look at Prince. He didnīt take much as far as I know, still he is/ was one of the most creative musicians out there. You realize that music itself is a wonderful legal drug.

Iīm not anti-drugs at all, I just say it kills productivity if its not controlled use, like a spliff then and there. Remember the countless hours of studio time that were wasted because people were high.

"What u putting in your nose
Is that where all your money goes
The river of addiction flows
U think its hot, but there wonīt be no water
When the fire blows
Dig it

Pop Life
Everybody needs a thrill
Pop Life
We all got a space to fill
Pop Life
Everybody canīt be on top
Life it ainīt that funky
Unless its got that Pop"

Prince, Pop Life
