MACKLEMORE @ RED ROCKS |2/1/13
Toward the last part of his set at Red Rocks, Macklemore got a little confessional. He shared with us how since he was in his early teens he's had no control over his consumption of drugs and alcohol, and he admitted to having spent many a day playing video games, getting fucked up, jacking off and taking naps -- not necessarily in that order. But then one day, he came to the realization that in order to do music for real and make something of himself he would have to get sober, and so in 2008, he did. However, a few years later after finally realizing some success on the road, he came home and, like many people, after such a real emotional and existential high sustained for weeks and months, he didn't really know what to do with himself or to handle normal reality, so he relapsed.
