I KNOW Freddie was a 'coker'. I'm not sure if he was a coke head or anything though. ;)

Roger did coke once, didn't like it and never did it again. Dunno about BM+JD.

"Roger did coke once, didn't like it and never did it again."

I think this is in reference to marijuana actually. He made a statement like that in his interview on 'Champions Of The World' but it wasn't about coke.

He may have said the same thing about coke for all I know though.

According to Peter Freestone's book, Freddie was quite fond of coke, but my favorite story is when he tried some acid and was found in a trash can among empty beer cans screaming "Look! I'm trash! Trash!" :)

If you read the Motley Crue autobiography The Dirt you'll read about a certain former dental student, who's now a drummer, attending a dinner with Tommy Lee - with trayfuls of the white stuff there!!!

I read that Brian DID do drugs!!! I was very surprised to read that!!
It said him and Freddie used to sneak back and take coke or summit. I am outraged...tut-tut

They might not all have been into 'charlie', but they certainly provided enough for their guests at parties, bowls full of the stuff on top of the heads of dwarves.

Freddie and Roger both did a lot of coke and loved the whole rock and roll lifestyle
Brian never did drugs. Not sure about John but I think he was somewhere between Freddie and Brian in terms of excess.

"Brian never did drugs"

Sorry, but you sound very sure of yourself, do you think it's really true?
As they all sort of grew up during the sixties/seventies (the era when all sorts of people experimented with drugs), and were in a band, which is even more reason to assume they DID try drugs, because that was cool in those days, I think it would be incredibly naive to think they did not do drugs. Even though it might have just been a try-out thing. Even though it might have been soft drugs like marijuana. I am sure they all smoked marijuana, especially when they shared a flat together in London. I know Freddie did coke. But that is really all I am sure about!

I'm sure Brian did something. Why is he always painted as such a goody-goody. He was a rock star, in his twenties and thirties, in the seventies, he must have tried something.

And I read that they used to put pot in the tea and brownies.

Well Brian has stated many times that he never did any drugs. He didn't smoke either, and would often go into a different room when the rest of the band smoked. He has said this many times on his soapbox and I believe him.

I agree. Even if he tried it once or twice and if it was just pot but he certainly tried something.
Every second 16-year old you'd meet on the street has already tried something, at least pot!
So why in the world should Brian haven't tried it if he was on that scene??

Times are diffrent.
And I highly doubt your statistics. I can easily say that less than 10% of my friends have tried anything like that and are all well beyond their 30's..:.

I think we should believe Brian. He NEVER smoked, so why should habe he tried pot then?
I know Freddie did amounts...
I don't know about John.
Roger said he tried some pot once and it didn't suit for him.
But he was a booze-hound in the 80's

And what is this myth, that there aren't any "clear" rock-stars. Steve Harris from Iron Maiden: no cigarets, no drugs, a bit of beer and a lots of sports (footie)
