10. Drugs kill creativity in the long haul. Sadly.
I wonder how much better a lot of our fave musicians and artists would have been if they hadn't been fucked up.

Except Zappa, of course, who didn't do drugs, and was one of perhaps THE most creative and amazing musician of the 20th century.

Drugs = creativity is a GIANT FUCKING LIE.
