Dr. Drew and psychologist Dr. David Swanson discuss the tragic death of Taylor Hawkins (drummer for the rock band Foo Fighters), his struggles with substance abuse, and the devastating effects of addiction on musicians.
Dr. David Swanson formed The Rock Collective to build a mutually supportive community amongst rock bands and rock fans. They hold monthly events at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood, where they feature live music from emerging rock bands in LA. The mission of the collective is to help up-and-coming artists break through to the next level. Learn more at rockcollective.net
