    Here's Lou Reed's live version of Heroin with a great backing band, not the Velvet Underground. I think I remember hearing they were Alice Cooper's band on loan for Lou's solo tour. A great keyboard rush as promised. Pretty good for '73
    I don't know if they were w/ AC before this as well as after, or just after, but Dick Wagner, one of the guitar players, passed away just the other day.

    Thanks, good info. I don't know if you checked the 90's thread today but I messaged you about the new Rolling Stone having a feature on Johnny Winter FYI.

    In spite of the band's name this is the newest drug song so far

    Always loved that song. Dave Van Ronk did a similar version, not with Browne's dry wit, but funny all the same: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qzPjztRAoY

    Mini The Moocher
    or whatever the name of that song Cab Calloway sang/dance/performed
    He Calloway was absolutely hypnotic-even on poor definition TV
    His performances were sorta otherworldly-
    Sooooo over the top somewhat gayish foppish exaggerated with his voice, band , moves
    Yeah ODD but hypnotizing
    and it isn't really much of a drug song-but it mentions cocaine and he mimics snorting it
    Anyway it is worth a search
    The Pusher- still the best

    Snowblind Friend written by Hoyt Axton is the
    "he said he wants heaven but praying was too slow...." song
    a truly depressing drug song
    -pretty much dead on right for full time on the street doper-depressing but rings true

    U2, Running to Stand Still is also a song with drug references.

    I'm going to be cheeky and post my cover of this song,
