Nick Cave lists low experiences while on drugs

Nick Cave has opened up about his experiences with taking drugs.

Answering to a fan whether he had ever reached the same highs while sober as he had when under the influence of drugs, Cave responded: “I’m not sure if I have quite reached the same highs as those times while sober, but then again I also haven’t reached the kind of lows that eventually came with taking those ‘lovely substances’.”

As NME reports, the Australian singer-songwriter went on to list some of the low experiences he has experienced while on drugs, including being “bashed up in police stations, dehumanised in rehabs, near-death experiences, suicidal thoughts, routine overdoses, reduced motivation, broken bones, being ripped off, liking Charles Bukowski, social and physical anhedonia, herd mentality, dead friends, fucked up relationships, abscesses, car accidents, psychosis, reading The Hobbit, malnutrition, creative impotence, epic time-wasting, singing flat (still working on that), talking shit (still working on that too), life-threatening diseases, and not ringing my mother on her birthday.”
