Sophie Best of Australia’s Beat magazine spoke with Evan Dando and asked about what he learned during his days fronting the Lemonheads. “I learned a lot. We played a lot of shows, it was all practice,” Dando said. “I can still use all that sh** I learned, especially now that I’m not fu**ed up all the time. I have no trouble playing without anything, without drinking or taking drugs. I remember when I was 10 years old, I wasn’t high all the time then, and I used to love playing guitar. You don’t need it, you can get just as high on music. Fugazi sounded good, they weren’t high. Then again a lot of my favourite bands were into drugs – Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix. I’m pro drugs, let me say that. I just can’t take them myself, but if people can handle them, fine. I got to the point where they started taking me over. But I am officially pro drugs.”
