Nicola-thank you for the info. Didn't the Chili Peppers have a band member who died of an overdose? His name was Hillell or something like that-not sure of the spelling.
Just wanted to add that I really love this message board. I have been a huge fan of Rivers since I was a kid and I am so glad that I stumbled across this board. Every time I see a movie of his I always wonder what his career and life would be like if he were still alive today. I think he would have had atleast one Oscar to his credit by now. What breaks my heart is that he had to pay the ultimate price for his habit/recreation-whatever you want to call it. River paid the ultimate price when so many people just keep getting by with the same thing. In my past I "partied" pretty hard with little consequence-I am very thankful for that but it just seems wrong that some people get by when others don't. Especially someone that was so promising and adored. I didn't know that Joaquin had an alcohol problem until he went to rehab for it-I am glad he did that. Joaquin is great too. When I see him I think his eyes look so sad and haunted. I wonder if it is because of the pain he suffered from losing River-I'm sure that is part of it.
