Bell bottoms, disco, uppers, downers, grass, weed — hey, it was the 70’s, right? EVERYBODY was doing drugs!

That may be the case but that doesn’t mean it worked out for everyone. Honestly, some never made it OUT of the 70’s due to all the illicit stuff floating around, but thankfully some did. And we’re even more grateful that they have used Unsung as a platform to warn others about the dangers of letting some pleasures get ahead of the thing that really mattered — the music.

Watch this video of stars like Bootsy Collins, Miki Howard and more give intimate details to some of the worst moments of their lives.
