That isn't at all my point.
Life is more precious than drumming ability. I'd rather Bonzo have quit drumming AND alcohol, over what happened to him.
Somebody could be a alcoholic drummer with a family and decide (for whatever reason) to quit both. I'm sure the wife and kids would be just fine with dad being a construction worker who's still alive, than a dead drummer.
If Bonzo's life lessons mean anything, it should be that you pick life before partying... and even before drumming.
Do you see what I mean?
