They may be just kids but it doesn't mean it'll last. Look at Charlotte Church.. did a bit of this, bit of that,  TV chat show for a bit and now she's burnt out and vanished. She was so talented too.. (as a choir girl anyway)

Re: But they're just kids.....

It makes you wonder how they get the drugs in the first place...  it's not like they can pop out to the local dealers house.

They know someone who knows someone who...
It's very sad, though.

Re: But they're just kids.....

I wonder just how young they were forced into practicing to be able to reach professional standards at such young age(s) and if they actually have ever done anything else with there lives as well or has it all been about getting good to get famous .....
far too often such child prodigies are in distress from before they start performing and the drugs are given to them by unscrupulous managers in order to suppress any urge to suffer a breakdown (which is rather odd since drugs are what always lead to the eventual breakdown)

fair do's though they are good at playing
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Re: But they're just kids.....

I agree with artmo and Strat, the boys are very talented and entertaining, too.
I'm not sure all youngsters are forced into practising. I studied music at grammar school and enjoyed the hard practising. Some of my peers went on to bigger and greater achievements in the field and I can honestly say that I never saw any sign of them having been forced into it.

A friend of mine whose club band I worked in years ago was probably influenced towards the keyboard by his brother who plays keyboard touring with Eric Clapton.
Neither of the brothers were pressured into playing although there was a piano in the house.
They just had natural talent and enjoyed expressing it.

You either have the musical talent or you don't I think.

Easy when you know how. There was a program on a while back about the death of whitney houston and they interviewed her dealer and he gave away the tricks they'd use to exchange money / drugs. I remember one trick being that he'd ask for for an autograph. She'd pull out an envelope (stuffed with cash) he'd lend her a pen, she'd sign it, he'd walk off with the envelope while leaving her with the pen - stuffed full of white powder.
People will always find devious ways to do things that they're desperate for..

Re: But they're just kids.....

Why are we discussing these very talented youngsters and mentioning drugs. Where does that come from Undecided There is no suggestion they are in any way involved with drugs.
