He [Dave Brockie] partied hard at periods, but I think he was more of a drug dabbler. But there’s a lesson here – dabbling with drugs kills people dead every day, just like being fully addicted does. I am so fucking sick of my friends dying from alcohol & drugs. Really, really, tired of it- some of them die slow in the throes of addiction, & some of them die after just doing something stupid one night after a party. Some of them fuck around and fuck around and fuck around… ‘I’ll get sober one day…’ For most of them, that day comes for sure – when we put them in a casket.
