Richie took a bit to much ketamine I think :)

The list of artists that went through a short period of drug/alcohol abuse and stopped, quit entirely etc. is MUCH larger. That excessive drug use helps your art is one of those myths that keeps a lot of people who should succeed, from succeeding IMO.

blaming your laziness on your drug of choice is the real culprit here.

FWIW My post is in no way an endorsement of sobriety in any way shape or form, ever.

you know hawtin is a good dj, decks efx and 909 is one of my fav cds. The part where Jeff Millls Call of the Wild gets mixed in get's me everytime.

That being said, seeing all of these youtube videos of him makes me think he is a bit of a weirdo. Not that matters to what I hear, but still.

Yeah, if my opinion of him was based on the video...hmmmmmm :?
Turn up the radio. Turn up the tape machine. Look into the sunset up ahead. Roll the windows down for a better taste of the cool desert wind. Ah yes. This is what it's all about. Total control now.

I have tons of respect for those that are strong enough to get a buzz from life without the need for chemical use/abuse. Music, a blast on my bike down a forest trail, and sex do it for me! :D (Not necessarily in that order...)

But as long as we confuse popularity and monetary gain with success, both good and bad popular artists will continue to be role models.

Are you guys a bunch of prudes???? It's not a big deal, it's called "partying". I'm not a fan of K (if that's what he's on), but these guys are adults and can do what they like. Ritchie Hawtin doesn't need the straight edge police judging him - if its not for you don't do it, but a lot of the dance music scene is based in - you guessed it - drugs and music together (don't forget "sheet one"). It is really fun to ride the high train when involved in an extended event - and it allows a lot of people lose their inhibitions and get on with dancing - do you think that dance culture would have made such mainstream inroads without E and alcohol??? Don't write off drugs - humans have used them for a loooonnnnnggggg time and will continue to do so. - Drugs are responsible for helping evolve conciousness and society, because they help people think outside the box - If one sometimes gets a little to "fucked" that is just part of the game......

so you are telling us that someone who is no longer able to stand on his feets is evolving conciousness?
I think you can evolve with drugs, yes, but it's easy to degenerate and then it's more an involution than an evolution, in my honest and humble opinion.

I mean too much is too much, I'm slowly losing respect for this artists.
We pay big money to see them and sometimes they are just too wasted to make a mix properly, like villalobos and luciano one time here in zurich, I had to leave the club because the two were fighting beetween them to make the next mix, and too wasted to do a good one.

Am I getting too old?
I'm with ya man, it's not about getting old, it's about getting wise.

I am saying that Ritchie has used drugs to evolve his conciousness and this time he obviously got too fucked up.....but these things happen when you're partying - have you never had a bad hangover or thrown up??? This does not mean that the guy is a loser, just that he rode the horse too far - I just don't like the self-righteous, wise straight guy, holier than thou feel of these anti drug posts - drugs go both ways just like everything else - good and bad.....oh ya, and cut the guy some slack all you "respect losers". How would you like your every action to be judged on a fucking internet forum.....

I noticed this... now, what are the odds that a World Top Class electronic musician, regardless of the involvement of intoxicants or not, would collapse straight down, exactly into his own footprint??!!??.

Notice that, to his right shortly thereafter, another person collapses, straight down, in a similar manner.

There are dark forces at work, here.
