Ken VeryBigLiar: ReapTheChaos: Damn, 74 years old and still struggling with addiction. Drugs, never once.

If you watch enough Steven from the 80s and 90s when he had been clean and most talkative you get the vibe he's the archetype addictive personality.  One's too many but there's never enough. So not endorsing drugs but no matter where he went in life he was going to have problems whether it was minimum wage getting wasted on crappy booze or his estimated $5M worth of drugs he did in his prime (which would be about $30-$35M in today's money).


As someone who's battled addiction, you are spot on.

At 74, I'm sure he struggles with erections too but I don't hear him swearing off sex.

The older you get, the more you fear death, but it's gonna happen no matter what you do. I'd rather it be quick, preferably from drugs.

I've watched cancer eat people up. Fark that noise, gimme the dope. Steve is backwards. Do drugs when you're OLD.

hubiestubert: /My one Tyler story is a festival that they headlined, and ZZ Top played before them. And ZZ Top went f*cking balls out. Like a 25 minute mashup that went hard. Tyler and the guys were on the edge of the stage watching the guys, and they were as awestruck as anyone in the audience. Literally Steven led the applause, and then took the mic as they left the stage, "Can you even follow that?" And led another round. He might be strung out, but he's good to the folks he tours with.


ZZ Top was a late-in-life discovery for me. As an '80s kid, I only knew them from their MTV videos, and kind of dismissed them as a gimmick band. "Oh, they have funny beards and since about chicks. Whatever." I kind of lumped them in with Robert Palmer, but with fancy guitars and motorcycles. I was young and they seemed silly.

Over the years a number of acts I respected also respected them, and they were seen as elder statements, so I finally shook off my bias and figured I'd see what was up. (Once I got past young snobbishness driven by ignorance, I started trying to correct my musical blind spots when I could.)

I think the first record I got from them was Tres Hombres.

Blown. The fark. Away.

Can't believe I'd been missing this shiat all these years. What a kick in the ass!

These days I'm a big fan. They rip it up.

My dad (RIP ) and i used to jam out to Aerosmith and Styx and Ozzy whenever we would go on out of town trips.  So I'm smiling a little bit that a piece of my childhood is getting sober and I'm not reading about a drug fueled death.

Since Aerosmith started sucking after they got clean does that mean they are going to be good again?

Thanks, buddy. I figured that out quickly. It's the convincing that takes time. I found Legos helped me out. Now my problem is I'm running out of space to display them. Ah, who am I kidding?  I'm now just letting my inner kid come out.

Get into Arrma RC cars, it's the best adult toy I can think of that is money well spent personnally as well as socially.

All the adult men on my cul de sac watch me run it around, which is pretty amazing.

Cheers


Oooo!  Now, that sound you hear is my SO's eyes rolling really hard. She knows what kind of "trouble" I could get into with that.

I've got nothing against Aerosmith, and enjoy their music.

But they're one of the most overrated bands in history.

They were the first band I got into (in my defense I was 12) around when Get A Grip came out. I found the older albums and found way more appreciation for them.  That said, I will freely admit there are 4-5 good to great albums in there and the rest are matters of preference to downright yikes.  I might be one of the few who likes Draw the Line.  Also to qualify myself I stopped listening to their new stuff in 1998.  Nine Lives was just... ugh.
