Influenced by my favorite musicians, I started using drugs at the age of 10. But my drug experiences led to a dead end. They did not help me find a “secret spot,” or enable me to create “amazing notes” that people would love me for. Instead, they left me with bad effects which lasted for a long time.
Fortunately, in the late 70’s, I attended a Chick Corea concert in Sweden. While listening to one of his songs, I noticed that it was dedicated to “Narconon.” I checked around and found out that Narconon was a rehab program using the methodology of L. Ron Hubbard. Amazingly enough, Narconon Eslov was located close to where I was living in Sweden.
Doing the Narconon program in the 80’s, it left me feeling as clean as I had before doing any drugs at all. This was a very big help to me, especially as an artist. I saw that drugs bring artists to a point where their creativity does not do any good for others, which I think is the greater purpose of art.
I want to give my personal tribute to Chick Corea for getting me on the way to a drug free life and to William Benitez for starting up the first Narconon Center. But most of all, my work today as an artist/songwriter is dedicated to the living dream of total freedom for all mankind and to L. Ron Hubbard for helping me keep that dream alive...
