Q. If you are in recovery, what was your DOC and when did you discontinue its use?
A. Cocaine – 9/12/02 – Alcohol – 10/3/02 so my sobriety date is 10/3/02… But back in the day, most anything would do, except needles & crack. I had high standards. I loved Qualuudes, Black Beauties & Yellow Jackets (speed) in the 80’s also. Oh and acid when hanging at the beach or at a good Hollywood party. Of course there was MDA the original compound that eventually became X-tacy, that was my favorite sex drug. So my DOC was “what did you have and how much do you have?”.
Q. Do you believe artists are made or born?
A. Both – Some have an easy God given talent that flows from the start and others learn their art and work to be better and perfect it. Plus, artist can be such a broad term.
Q. Which film have you watched the most?
A. I’m not sure, Princess Bride, Blazing Saddles, Raising Arizona, Clint Eastwood westerns. I’ll watch most any movie again and again if I have the chance. Old Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire films. That’s a tough question for me. Also the word Favorite, I don’t have a favorite of anything that I’m aware of.
