    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

    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    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,
