What about Keith Richards? Remarkable quantities of input and remarkably upbeat output.
Or Duane Allman (died in a crash but was a very heavy user). John Bonham. Tim Buckley. Bon Scott. Rick Grech. The list could go on ... none fit your description.
Well, I think DMC was referring to the song writers, but a few of these don't seem that far out from his point:
Richards, OK, but doesn't Mick write the lyrics? Still, Paint it Black, Sympathy for the Devil,
Duane Allman - Whipping Post? TIED to the whipping post! Good Lord, I feel like I'm dyin'...
Granted Greg wrote the song. But seems to fit.
Bonham - Gallows Pole, Immigrant Song ( violence, destruction), When the Leave Breaks (Moroseness, alienation).
Bon Scott: Dirty Deeds, Jail Break, Highway to Hell,
