Thanks, I think. I tried hard to be that way because my older brother was wild, rebellious and sometimes abusive (when he was paranoid after using drugs). I didn't want to make her and Dad's life any harder than it was. I still went a bit wild. I liked to drink every now and then when I was young- not as an alcoholic would just for a good time. I tried pot once under extreme peer pressure but nothing harder than that.
Drugs made my brother schizophrenic so I basically avoided them at all costs. He had several bad LSD trips. He also had some weird sexual proclivities which he didn't try to hide and were rather embarrassing at times.
I imagine if I grew up in a 'normal situation" that I probably would have been a bit wilder. Dealing with his situation caused me to grow up very fast in many ways but without the full range of life's experiences.
The Dylan/Cash stuff was good. Dylan doing IBM commericals, not good.
I hear you about drugs. Personally I think the "war on drugs" is a mistake for many reasons but also because of what it does to people with problems. Oh, you're addicted- let's slap a criminal history on you so even IF you get better you can never find a job. Never mind the asset forfeiture, corruption, and disincentive to try to get help if one thinks they have a problem. Not to say drugs are 'good' necessarily because clearly, even 'soft' or 'smart' or 'prescription', can be problematic but the way our laws/system treats it is ridiculous and harmful (though generates money, I guess, for some.)
Hated bands: when they start to "sell out" or "new avenues" that are really just new producers, record companies, MTV video, mainstream projects.
