    Now we've al been through the drugs in sport situation, players/members disqualified for taking the drugs etc.....

    Now is it me or should this rule take place in the world of entertainment? Small children take more notice of singers and actors these days rahter than sporting hero's so they are the ones setting a bad example to the younger generation than our sports stars.

    Should Singers like Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty and actors alike be banned from performing, CD's and Albums taken off the shelves due to performers actions.

    Artists should be stripped of awards/platinum disks etc. for any work completed under the influence of performance-enhancing drugs. Mandatory testing must be introduced as a clause in all new contracts. Special tests to be completed after the release of any critically-acclaimed new work, especially one which deviates significantly in style from earlier work.

    Furthermore, why not look at all music that has been produced since the nineteen fifties and ban any that may have been produced while the artist was under the influence?

  11. can't they just lock wino, drugerty and all the other re-rehabers in a room with a great stash of drugs and booze and let them just kill themselves without inflicting their talentless lives on us?

    Don't forget to destroy all those CDs from The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, The Who and Jimi Hendrix whilst you're at it.

    As Bill Hicks once said 'The Beatles were so high they even let Ringo sing a few songs.'

    Red Tom's right. The whole history of rock/blues etc would not be what it is without mind altering substances. It's a 'chicken and egg' situation I fear. Are these people creative as a result of pharmacology or does their creativity drive them to experiment with pharmacology? I don't know.

    The fact is that whether we (or they) like it or not people such as Mr Doherty and Ms Winehouse are powerful role-models. It takes them ages to realise that with that comes a certain amount of responsibility.

    So if it's a good idea to let our younger generation believe that drug taking is ok as it makes you a great singer, then why are we stopping our sports persons? If you take out these role models surely we would see a decrease in the amount of drug related crimes in this country?
