    Dylan shooting up

    So it turns out Bob Dylan was a drug addict.
    Bit like finding out Rock Hudson was gay.
    Who'da thunk it?
    Amazing that with all the hype surrounding these guys, the truth never gets out.

    This from the man in 1966...forget to mention about prefers shooting up?

    From a 1966 Playboy interview with Dylan:


    Quote:
    PLAYBOY: Paranoia is said to be one of the mental states sometimes induced by such hallucinogenic drugs as peyote and LSD. Considering the risks involved, do you think that experimentation with such drugs should be part of the growing up experience for a young person?

    DYLAN: I wouldn't advise anybody to use drugs - certainly not the hard drugs; drugs are medicine. But opium and hash and pot - now, those things aren't drugs; they just bend your mind a little. I think everybody's mind should be bent once in a while. Not by LSD, though. LSD is medicine - a different kind of medicine. It makes you aware of the universe, so to speak; you realize how foolish objects are. But LSD is not for groovy people; it's for mad, hateful people who want revenge. It's for people who usually have heart attacks. They ought to use it at the Geneva Convention.

    A newly discovered interview has him saying he was addicted (Strung out*) and suicidal in 1966.

    Strung out:*physically weak as from long-term drug addiction, addicted to a drug.

    I have just finished reading INXS story, the official one.
    They tell it warts and all, boy were they doing some stuff while on tour or recording.
    Some very funny stories, a good read.
