9780806530734: Everybody Must Get Stoned

Keith's on guitar, Charlie's on drums, and Ronnie's on rhythm. But who's on drugs?

Everybody.

Welcome to the red-eyed world of rock and roll, where every riff comes with a spliff--a coked-up compendium of your favorite musicians and their favorite drugs. Loaded with sordid tales of debauchery, lists, and bleary-eyed photos, there's more stuff in here than in one of Snoop Dogg's favorite brownies, including:

  • The Top Ten Albums to Tweak to

  • The Top Ten Rock Star Drug Quotes

  • The Top Ten Drug Busts in Rock

  • Extreme acid casualties

  • Outrageous drug stories of rock legends

  • The secret history of Dylan and drugs

  • Henry Rollins and Frank Zappa: How to act like you're on drugs without actually doing any

  • And the answer to the ever popular rock and roll drug question, "Who gave the Beatles their first hits of acid?" (Their dentist!)

So put on your favorite CD, don't try the green acid, and enjoy!

Note: Pages are not suitable for rolling papers.

From Booklist:

Sirius’ patented zaniness, a little forced from time to time, makes for a not-altogether-serious disquisition on the intersection of the rock-star lifestyle and recreational substance abuse. So what? The text, mostly articles accompanied by lists (of rock stars on coke, rock stars on ecstasy, etc.), skips right along. Sirius’ “rankings” in various categories occasionally owe more to name-checking for big stars than any sort of logic, but he does cover a lot of ground entertainingly. Certain names get dropped in relation to more than one drug. Keith Richards and the Grateful Dead, for instance, score consistently, and Sirius manages to place James Brown and Charlie Daniels cheek-by-jowl in a list of rock stars against drugs—closer than they ever came corporeally or musically. Some rankings seem obvious. Number one rock star on weed? Bob Marley, for whose religion ganja is, of course, a sacrament. Also on deck: Nixon’s war on drugs, Sir Paul McCartney’s weed-ophilia, and more pithy hip-hop-star anecdotes than you could shake a spliff at. Good, clean fun.
