I "drug" myself to go see concerts at the Band Shell near the Academy of Sciences in 1967 to watch groups like The Grateful Dead, Moby Grape, Big Brother and the Holding Co., etc. and saw that the bands had "drugged" themselves there to perform too. In fact I saw them all hanging around the back before and after their sets "drugging" themselves in celebration of the events. I was asked by Jerry Garcia if I wanted a "drag" which I politely said no, but then he asked me if I wanted to play his black Gibson Les Paul and he "dragged" it out from it's case and "drug" me over to sit next to him as I played it. I gotta tell you, it really "drug" out my desire to become a rockstar at 12 years old.
