There are a load of references to drugs in rock music and a fair number of our favourite musicians have indulged themselves in illegal substances.

Being a bit of a wimp I’ve never actually tried any illegal drugs so I’m in no position to comment on how they might affect a musician, good or bad. However, in an attempt to cure the coughing and sore throat I’ve had for weeks now I finally convinced my doctor that I needed medical help and so I’m taking antibiotics.

I know it’s hardly the drug of choice for the rebel rock n roller but I’m seriously hoping that I might get well again.

There’s a lot more prodding and poking to go as the doctor wants X-rays, blood samples and other stuff. Getting old is not all it’s cracked up to be.
