        Right, Brian. But try playing in one of those groups. Those who took
a walk are on a different planet. If everybody's doin' it, they all seem to
be on the same wavelength. But there are times when half the band's on pot,
the drummer's on coke, and one or two members are clean. The audience may
not notice but, believe me, on stage, it's not that pleasant.
