Damon Albarn Says Heroin Helped Him as a Musician
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.27.2014



Damon Albarn may not be a heroin user these days, but he doesn't seem to be looking back on it as the worst experience possible. The Blur and Gorillaz frontman told Q Magazine (via NME) that heroin was a drug that helped him as a musician.

"I hate talking about heroin because of my family," Albarn said in an interview. "But, for me, it was incredibly creative. It freed me upů A combination of that and playing simple, beautiful, repetitive shit in Africa changed me completely as a musician. I somehow managed to break out of something with my voice. I can only say heroin was incredibly productive for me."

He wasn't all rose-colored glasses about it though, noting, "It turns you into a very isolated person. Ultimately, anything that you are truly dependent on is not good....It's what I found going on in the front room (when I was living with Justine). The telly was on, so I just thought: 'Why not?' I never imagined it would become a problem."

He added that he didn't take it on the weekends during his use, calling it "five days on, two days off" and crediting the attitude to is more structured and office hour-like approach to music.
