Sounds like it- he even quit smoking cigs.
God that would be awful, what a horrible way to live. Not being able to have a beer or two due to the danger of relapsing onto drugs.

It does suck. A beer buzz is the gateway to warm phone calls and reminiscing with old pals. This leads to wanting to feel something more and that usually is your drug of choice. A beer buzz is not enough. You're constantly searching for that next level. Then a night turns into a week of calling in sick, etc. I live it.

I don't think Dave ever drank even when he wasn't clean??

For me these days a beer buzz leads to cheeseburgers, pizza and ice cream. :oldtimer:

A lot of time helps a lot. For some people anyway...others, like you said, 1-2 drinks is a hell of a gamble
(And when I say a lot of time I mean 10+ years)

Sometimes not even time helps I was at a friends wedding and the father of the groom had been sober for like 17 years and had one glass of champagne, after about a 6 month bender he is now back on the wagon. Shit affects people in all kinds of different ways. Personally I like drying out for a month or two namely for health reasons but also because when I do have a drink I drink a lot less and get my buzz and my brisket.

Probably a prototype for the first Starfield Cabriolet later made for Ibanez. It seems to have been refinished in yellow at some point after he smashed the guitar at Lolla.

tried to buy that guitar from someone more than once. the guy i was talking to kept it under his bed still in pieces. would love to have it still. also, i'm not completely sure it's a starfield. i'm pretty sure it was a custom job for dave specifically. a one off guitar. that's all a memory though.

good to see it's still around.
