On tour.

seriously, how do you manage the drugs??? i’ve got to fly to europe tomorrow and the strongest stuff i have is ambien. help!!

Yes, well. It all depends on what you mean by the word “manage,” doesn’t it?

If you’re asking how one manages the drugs amidst an otherwise hectic schedule, the answer simple. Some might even say trite. Moderation in all things, including moderation. You just have to be smart about when you get to blow it the fuck out.

If, on the other hand, you’re asking how one carefully manages the supply of illicit chemicals while headlining your way through a European tour so as not to arouse the suspicion of customs officials, the trick involves a carefully worded backstage rider and a complicit tour manager who has an unspoken agreement with a dedicated member of your vanity team who is exclusively responsible for “powdering your nose.”

I’m sure you’ve done this long enough to know there’s always someone at the local venue who’s holding, and as long as you’ve got someone in your camp who knows to ask, you’ll never go without.

Ah, the minor conspiracies of life on the road. Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.

I love it when rock stars ask for my advice.
