“My ego couldn’t take that I wasn’t the top dog anymore. That’s when things started to unravel.” (Mixmag)
Erick Morillo recalling how recreational drug use slipped into addiction that saw him injecting ketamine, being busted three times and losing his ‘love of his life’ wife (chatting to Pete Tong at IMS).
“I used to post cocaine to myself, taped to the inside sleeve of records like Chicago or a Jamiroquai album.
If I did get caught I could say I would never listen to a Jamiroquai record, so how could it possibly be mine?” (Guardian)
The Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess recalls getting away with high living in LA in the 90s until going straight edge 5 years ago (‘I had to stop taking drugs when I started running low on money . . . ’)
