FAMOUS FANS OF PSYCHEDELICS
The Apple co-founder said taking LSD ‘was a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life’. He used the drug from 1972 to 1974.
‘I’m not new to the idea of mushrooms,’ the American actor has admitted. ‘I don’t really like chemical things. [Psychedelics advocate] Timothy Leary was a friend of mine, so that acid was nice and pure, but I’m not really looking for chemicals, and I don’t like to feel speedy. But I’ve done ayahuasca and I’ve done mushrooms and things like that.’
The author of a Nicholson biography claims the actor became involved with drugs in the 1960s. The writer alleges, ‘Jack’s experiences with [LSD] were life-changing. He believed after taking it the first time that he had seen the face of God.’
The musician has stated that he ‘did a lot of mushrooms’ as part of the creative process for his upcoming album, admitting that he bit off the tip of his tongue during a session – ‘so I was trying to sing with all this blood gushing out of my mouth’.
