didn't bono once say something to the effect of "if you're not wasted, the day is"

or maybe it was all just a dream from the people on the ground

but i do love those brightly colored lights beaming off of the stage and into the heavens above

the air that day might have been a lost cause...but it sure made for an interesting night
there are demons in the broad day light

Its seems unlikely Adam was involved with this as hes been on the wagon for a long time. I can imagine bono has done a few class As though. Presumably while god wasnt looking.

I've always been curious about what their experiences with drugs were.  Bono seemed to dodge it in Bono on Bono (called various other things depending on the country).  I always figured they were tame with the worst incidents being Adam getting caught with pot and missing a single show due to a hangover- although i do know he's got an issue with the booze.  I know Bono likes his wine, and i would assume most members smoke tweeds on occasion, but i never really took them for coke users.

Well, there's the interview with Edge talking about shrooms...and he describes it so well. But, I never thought they were into coke. Who knows? And, really, who cares? We are what we are...

Thats part of the stuff I dont really want to know.

I like to believe they tried stuff, but remained  healthy , in general.

That said, Adams been very open about his (past) booze issues. Bono certainly is a drinker and he has not aged too well these past few years... especially when you take into account he probably has an army of doctors / coaches / dieteticians...at his disposal.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

I was always a fan for Oasis to go back on drugs.  Although i still don't think they've ever put out a bad album- except maybe their last.

Ladies, please.

Being that rich and famous and hanging around other people that rich and famous theyve blatantly enjoyed recreational drugs.

If I was that rich and famous Id be doing coke with lesbian strippers dressed as a nun. Every. Single. Night.
