It's funny to see fan sites acting like they have any sort of inside knowledge on the use of drugs (that includes alcohol)...it speaks volumes that for a rock band with over 30+ years of experience, their worst instance is the bass player getting drunk and being caught with marijuana once. And guitar player trying "crazy shrooms".

At that level of fame it's impossible to hide any serious (ie Rolling Stones level) habit. Or the consequences of it.





Well said!!!!! I'd been trying to come up with the right words to comment on this...thank you.

The Stones have a different overall stage presence than U2. They've always been about partying, drugs, sex and rock n roll. And they've been vocal about it as well. U2 is different, and their activism/humanitarian work is able to topple anything that's potentially happening behind closed doors. I'm sure their spiritual/religious background is able to keep them grounded somewhat, with it also acting as a blanket of sorts to keep the overall image "clean."
I'm not saying U2 are huge drug users, definitely not a Jagger/Richards type by any means. But people can't honestly believe they've only done shrooms/pot/alcohol in their 30+ years.

Bono would probably fail a drug test if it screened for certain substances...cortisone probably being the likely culprit.  :-P

Can someone please fill me in on this story about Edge and magic mushrooms? Sounds scandalous. Thanks
