Did you ever dabble with any drugs and find that your compositions improved ?
I am including all legal and illegal, from caffeine upwards.
Does a cigarette help you to concentrate.
Did you write a great tune while stoned ?
And listen back to it the next day and decide it was garbage ?
Didn't the Beatles' music improve after they discovered weed (Rubber Soul) and LSD (Sgt Pepper etc) ?
Did composers of the classical period get high in German coffee parlours ?
