Show Summary Details


In this chapter, Clark describes how the experience of many musicians with the addiction of drugs, especially that of his friend's Miles', and how Clark himself, managed to stay away from any kind of drug addiction. Clark kept away from any kind of narcotics, as he didn't want anything to come between him and his career. He didn't want to become dependent on anything, to blow his money or end up dead. His only desire was to play his music from his heart and soul. As Clark describes, gambling was the only addiction he had dealt with. And that was enough. It had taken him a lot to curb it. For a long time, with all the hell he had been through with gambling, he was absolutely sure he did not want to add another addiction to his life.
