Throughout the history, music has been an important part of people’s lives. In the last 50 years or so, with the wider expansion of recreational drugs, music has been affected and connected to drugs in more than one occasion, but this connection goes even a little deeper into the history of music.
Musicians have long used addictive substances to trigger creativity and intensify performances. Substances such as marijuana, speed, ecstasy, cocaine, and heroin most of all have shaped performers and musical movements. Unfortunately, some of these performers fell so deep into the addiction that they could never get back and their bands died with them.
