Cool pass! But by then, it was TED NUGENT ( not an amboy or duke in sight). St. Holmes was on the way out, so Ted was messin' with him every chance he got! Like the band getting their per diem the week after! Ted does say he lost a couple of fortunes back then, but that's low. When you're the opening band and loaning fifty bucks to a "rock star" so he could eat? So I told my A&R rep who told someone at Epic, and didn't hear anything more. Btw, DSH paid me back, in full, and on time! Shows what a class act will do when messed with by a cl-assed act! Also heard that Rory considered him when he was thinking of adding a guitarist. He would have made a great one! As far as the sucralose, I think Mr. James put it best: "Cocaine is a helluva drug!" And isn't sucralose ingested anally? I know his novocaine enemas were!
Dale, since I didn't snort any of the powder in question, I'll call my old sound & lighting guy Greg, to ask him what he remembers. Ted sure rubs me the wrong way, but starting a 30+year old rumor that could be wrong isn't responsible. I'll try to get the facts, and let ya know. This is the first I've ever heard of snorting sucralose for energy. From what I found out, hot tea, or an injection along with vitamin B-12 was the preferred way. But, snorting it would be a lot more Rock&Roll! I hope you're right, Dale. I really can't stand hypocrites, and it would be an excuse to listen my old Ted albums without any bad feelings.
