Example text

A full-time singer/songwriter, I began to feel unsteady, glancing at my feet on the tightrope I had been walking for years. As a functioning adult, oversensitive served me not at all. I just never had the right amount of boundary to get through the world. Blessing and curse, right? So many artist/addicts tell the same story: We used drugs to help us reach new creative heights and to keep the high of being onstage alive during the more ordinary hours of the day. We also needed to shut the lights off at some point.

I’ll leave out the boring and all-too-familiar story about what, where, and how; suffice it to say that there wasn’t a buzz that I didn’t want more of. The way young girls have dreams about losing their virginity to the man who would be the love of their lives, I had dreams about mushrooms, LSD, peyote. I would wake up with my heart beating as if I had just had a wet dream. Which, I suppose, I had. Yeah, I was that kid. Everything tasted like more. I kept my demons well dressed for quite a while.

I walked in to interview at HSBV, therefore, after the restaurant, after the pawn shop, after the tape cleaning, after the rock carrying, more confident than I’d ever been at an interview before. My tattoo sleeves were just beginning to take shape but still, I felt I had no reason to hide who and what I was. My name was Jackson Galaxy—I liked big jewelry, I wore Elton John–ish glasses, and I had a head full of dreadlocks, dyed every color of the rainbow, with African trade beads and various and sundry other toys laced through them.
