When I was young and on the road playing music, I did my share of partying and recreational drugs. After a while, I seemed to be stuck and not progressing musically as I would have liked.
So one day I woke up listening to the radio and realized, after studying the sounds coming from every station, that I was not where I needed to be musically to compete.
I started to think out of the realm of working in clubs and try harder to find a musical path that would suit me. I decided to do it straight and use my faith as a foundation.
All of a sudden, within a very short period of time, I was playing with better writers, musicians, players, etc. and my original music was coming to light. It was like I was being held back until I decided to give my natural talent a chance to extend itself without the use of drugs, which at the time, I thought, was making my music better.
This was my story, not yours. But if you are stagnant in your music and need a change, try playing straight for a year. Listen to the recordings before and after and come to your own conclusion.
