Stevie Nicks has not been one to shy away from the media about her troubled past with drugs, specifically Cocaine. The Fleetwood Mac singer has now spoken about the tragic death of Glee star, Cory Monteith. Nicks who was acquainted with Glee, even visited the set when the FOX dramedy dedicated an episode to the infamous ‘Rumours’ album in season 2. In an interview with The Herald, Nicks was asked if she was devastated by the sudden death of the popular 31-year old actor. She replied:
“I was. [In the Seventies] we were really warned about heroin. I can't remember who it was but somebody said, 'this is what will happen if you do heroin: you get really, really sick, you'll throw up for hours, then you'll have about an hour of a high. And then after that high you'll start scraping the ground looking for more. Then for the rest of your life - probably - that's what you will do: search the world for that high. And you'll never find it.”
The death of Cory Monteith must have hit home as Nicks struggled with addictions in the past. Speaking of the destructive nature of a heroin addiction Nicks said:
“This Cory thing I've thought a lot about it. Mostly you realised that all that recreational/non-addictive [idea] was bullshit when it started to become more important than music. And it did. And heroin's a lot quicker road to that! It's gonna become more important than your music, or your acting, or your amazing career that you have ahead of you. You're just throwing it away. And you have somebody like Cory who had the world at his feet, and his fingertips.”
Luckily Nicks managed to conquer her own addictions. It’s just so incredibly sad that it was drugs that claimed Cory’s life in the end, despite the brave fight he put up against them. Hopefully we’ll see more education surrounding drugs and their effects, because there just doesn’t seem to be enough of it in schools. There needs to be more, because drugs are essentially all around you, it’s the government’s duty to educate people so they can then pass on their knowledge to others and hopefully prevent more devastating deaths not just in Hollywood, but the world in general. The tribute episode of Glee dedicated to Cory Monteith and his character Finn Hudson, will air this Thursday (10th Oct) at 9/8c on FOX in US and 18th October in UK.
