I took some Tylenol PM last night. I was playing my heart out on the guitar.. I played some of my favorite covers.. Paul Simon, Pink Floyd, The Beatles. Tossed in a few of my originals… I may play a little picnic gig thing in May.

You know, I think it sounded better because I was getting a little woozy from the “PM” part of the Tylenol. Or maybe it was in my head. In any case:

DO mild altering drugs enhance musical creativity?
Do they make you play better? You know there are tons of musicians out there that think so. And some of the best records in history were made while “under the influence.” Or that’s what is said in musician drug circles.

Some Bands on Drugs:

  • Beatles
  • The Who
  • Pink Floyd
  • David Bowie
  • The Doors
  • Greatful Dead
  • Rolling Stones
  • Jefferson Airplane
  • Led Zeppelin
  • ETC..etc..etc

But drugs have a way of telling lies. Maybe these people were talented and creative rather they were on drugs or not. Perhaps creativity is a giftDrugs are just taking the credit. What do you think?
