        his opressive hometown, crashing with Izzy Stradlin in the “hell house”, or their road trip to Seattle where they got paid in drinks made me long for a time when I was young enough to to think I could do anything and the only thing that mattered to me was crashing on my friends couch with a bottle of booze.
