People who say things like "OMG The Beatles smoked pot and look at what they accomplished!" are deluding themselves. The Beatles would have gone down in history with or without drugs. The drugs just happened to be "the thing" at the time, and it took them down certain musical paths.
And they never actually recorded music while high. The only ones who did that were the Grateful Dead, and they sucked.
