LA Weekly - Rick Allen Interview Quote

"I have a glass of wine once in a while and that's fantastic," he says. "I've tried everything. Why not? I think the trick is to not get stuck. When it becomes a crutch, then it gets kind of nasty. But for me there was always this sense of, 'Try it out and see what it's like,' and then take the experience from it and move on. Fortunately, with most things, I was able to do that. I really battled with cigarettes though. To me, that is one of the most addictive things in the world."
