I do, and you must have resented most of those that played back then because they were into it also. I sincerely doubt that he led anyone into that drug culture, it was wide open, influences coming from more places than just the music industry and I for one had no idea his drug of choice until he died. Same with Janis. There were a lot who did it that most of us had no idea until much later when we found out they were in drug rehab for it. Not all made the transformation that say a Whitney Houston did. For some the drug did enhance their performances, sad to say.
