Artists & Their Abuse....

You know if I had to stop listening to my favorite musical artists because they did drugs or abused women...my collection would be REALLY slim. There's a video floating around the net of one of my favorite singers smoking crack. Amy, PLEASE get some help! Here's a short list of some of my favorite artists that love/loved mind-altering substances, abused women or both.I've never had any interest in mind-altering (some would say that it's already naturally altered). Abusing a woman is not even a consideration.
Marvin Gaye
David Ruffin (of the Temptations)
Smokey Robinson
James Brown
Jimi Hendrix
Miles Davis
Rick James
George Clinton
Bootsy Collins
Eddie Hazel
Jackie Wilson
Bob Marley
Gregory Isaacs
Dennis Brown
Chaka Khan
Billie Holiday
Dinah Washington
Elvis Presley
Johnny Cash
Ray Charles
Dennis Edwards (of The Temptations...man they partied too much!)
Ali-Ollie Woodson (of the Temptations...wait a minute)
Eddie Kendricks (of the doggone Temptations...ggggrrrrr)
I guess that song by the Temptations & Rick James "Standing On The Top" has taken on a whole new meaning for me.
