I’m a runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb But alcohol, acid, cocaine…they were just affairs. When I met heroin, it was true love. After we made it big, Mötley Crüe gave me more money than I knew what to do with. So naturally I spent it on the only thing I wanted to do: drugs. Before the band, I lived only for music: after it started, I lived only for drugs. OK, so maybe Mötley gave me the resources to be an addict, but…you know what? If it hadn’t, I’d have found some other way to do it.
