No, really. I swear. I have over 27 years clean and sober, and the longer I stay so the more I realize that Soundgarden, Helmet, and Alice in Chains had more impact on me than any meeting, sponsor, area service commitment or counselor.
My mental health issues were obliterated by a steady diet of Kyuss, Masters of Reality and hundreds of songs that gave my hope by sharing some darkness.
I guess I’d like to explore why. Write about bands that do the same for me now, and if I’m lucky, read your thoughts as well. I know I’m no the only one out there…
