The Economic Scale Of Heavy Metal And Drugs

Seb Hunter spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his memoir "Hell Bent For Leather: Confessions of a Heavy Metal Addict" (view cover here), profiling his time in failed bands RAG 'N' BONES and the TRASH CAN JUNKIES. Asked his most ridiculous tale of chemical excess, Hunter responded, "There's a sliding economic scale. The smaller your band, you take speed and mushrooms. Then you get a bit bigger and you take cocaine and so on, until you've got a full-blown heroin habit and that's when you know you've made it. We never really got behind amphetamine sulphate. We used to put speed in our tea like sugar. It's quite English."
