They both were iv users in the 40's and early 50's both jazz musicians and both were boxers and always stayed in shape between bouts with drugs. The drummer got clean in about 1950 after 2 yrs in prison and never ever used drugs again and always ate very well and trained religiously. The other one was on and off drugs till about the 70's he spent 10 yrs in San Quinten and Fulsom prison. He has been clean for many years now.

What I am saying I feel this is a **** shoot in some ways. It has to do with Genetics, GOD, Attitude and alot of other factors. We just can go in fighting do our best and let it be, what ever the outcome.  JUST DO YOUR BEST.

GOD BLESS
