Roger Daltrey Heeded Owsley Stanley Drug Warning
In an interview with Britain's Daily Mail newspaper Daltrey says: "I wasn't a goody-goody; I dabbled in the natural. But I was in a band with three alcoholics and someone had to be straight. They were three lunatics.
"I also got warned off chemicals very early on by the man who made Purple Haze [LSD]. His name was Owsley Stanley, The Bear. He told me to never touch chemicals and I believed him because he was the man."
