Subject: RE: Ashley to 10 year olds: Smoke Pot
Funny, he can talk about how nothing the press has reported to be true, or overexaggerated, but in his autobiography, he didn't exactly deny things either. Everything in that book was-"."Well, I said that about SARS, but I didn't really mean it, was all a joke, you just didn't get it." THe entire book was about his being misunderstood, and of course, he had no culpability in any of the scandals he has been tied to. I saw him in 1996 in Dublin, and he was amazing. But brilliant musicianship does not make up for shooting your mouth off, and when someone calls you on it, you run for cover and say, "The press, the press did it."
