It really was nothing but sad

“It really was nothing but sad. You just sort of saw a guy who had lost control of himself. He was needy, he was grumpy, he was everything you wouldn’t want in a person. It’s not like when you think of Keith Richards being pleasantly blissed out in the corner. I think it points out how unglamorous the whole drug thing really is. For the people who knew him, the people who were around him, it was horrible. It’s not this glamorous, jetsetting, beautiful lifestyle that everybody dreams of rock’n’roll heaven being. It wasn’t like that at all. It was ugly. It was sad.”

Wayne Coyne (about the police incident involving Elliott in 2001)
