    Hell, that's nothing. If you believe the posts here, half of us have spent more than that on ammo recently... :rofl:

    Without batting an eye, I will say that he probably snorted 4x that much coke. So yeah, maybe out of pocket he was out $5M, but between ass kissers and record label execs in the early days, way more than $5M, not even adjusting for inflation.

    They made the best music and gave the best performances during those drug fueled years.

    Still, it’s good he gave it up so he didn’t end up on that long list of dead before your time.

    Which, in my non-humble opinion, ain't saying much.

    Some of the best music on earth was composed by people who would today be classified with some psychological disorder, and/or who imbibed on mind altering substances.

    That I understand quite well.
    I was commenting on the music of Aerosmith.

    It was only an opinion (of musical/R&R styles)..

    Aerosmith's music isn't exactly good.

    Plus, I shy away from the 80's hairbands, with men trying to look like women.

    Aerosmith wasn't exactly an 80's hair band.

    My budget for buying drugs was modest by comparison; $100K every six months. I spent every DIME of it and had a great deal of fun doing so.

    Ah, the good old days.................

    damn, thats a lot of coke. Doesnt suprise me at all though. Thinking of that, I was listening to yellow submarine the other day and my gf didnt beleive me when i said a lot of the Beatles music was written or inspired when they were on drugs. Sometimes I think she was hidden in a closet growing up, lol.

    Same with comedy and some of the greatest authors.

    What did Dr Evil say?

    "The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. "

    Great scene. True statement.

    True. And throughout the past decades they preached to us about how they cared more and were more enlightened than us, while at the same time they were in business with evil that executed, murdered, tortured and destroyed millions of lives made possible through their purchases of illegals drugs.

    Ever notice that these people never make the connection to the evil that they supported and continue to do so today?

    And some of the best writing. Edgar Allen Poe, for example.

    Good post, Mullet.

    No one should turn a blind eye to that, yet most do.
