A spokesperson for Buffett stated the pills in question were prescription drugs , but declined to name the drug or the health problem for which he was being treated. Buffett released a statement that the "ecstasy" was in fact a B-vitamin supplement known as Foltx. The "Big 8" were:. With the success of the Alan Jackson duet "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere", and the rising popularity of " One Particular Harbour ", the list of songs played at most shows went from 8 to Other notable songs that are played at many shows are " Son of a Son of a Sailor ", Van Morrison 's " Brown Eyed Girl " and Crosby, Stills and Nash 's " Southern Cross ", bringing the total number of songs played at the vast majority of concerts since to Many of the appearances had short set lists such as guesting on television shows.
The set list for the event on May 3 at the Austin Amphitheater, his first outdoor show in Austin in 17 years, did include the "ten". The show was one of the very few in Buffett's career to be rescheduled on account of weather conditions extreme wind in Austin forced the move to May 3 from the original date of May 2. A concert-goer said, "He just went over to the edge of the stage, like he had numerous times through the night, just to wave, and people were throwing stuffed toys and things at him.
And he just took one step too many and just disappeared in a flash. He didn't have time to put his arms out to save himself or anything, he just dropped. Gordian Fulde treated Buffett at the scene. Fulde said, "I thought he'd broken his neck I heard the clunk of his head on a metal ledge, he has a deep gash on his scalp, which is all right now But at first I thought: this guy is going to be a spinal injury.

Somewhere Tour. Namespaces Article Talk. Views Read Edit View history. It's also the focus of an increasing amount of media attention these days. Recent studies have concluded that long- and short-term use of the drug may impede the brain's neural transmitters in charge of releasing serotonin and dopamine, chemicals responsible for memory, sleep patterns, and emotional highs and lows.
The story of Ecstasy and its arrival in Austin in the early Eighties is an epic tale of late-night debauchery, high-flying club life, and one very disgruntled Drug Enforcement Agency. It's also irrevocably tied to this city's vital electronic music scene, though as before, the tale of the tablet is less about dance-club culture than the emergence of a whole new strata of cultural subgenres. And as befits an age where the world appears to be on the cusp of a massive global technological revolution, Ecstasy advocates along with their detractors are becoming a noticeable presence on the Net.
Where did it all begin? Listen up.
Class is in session. Everything Starts With an 'E' Germany, the Great War had yet to begin, Kaiser Wilhelm was still looking flash in his pointed hat and epaulet combo, and the little pharmaceutical company known as Merck was busily cranking out a new breed of psychotropic drugs, having previously given the world the one-two sucker punch of morphine and Dilaudid and by extension, William S. MDMA, the chemical abbreviation for Ecstasy, received patent number There persists to this day an intriguing rumor of its use during World War I as a battlefield stimulant.
The story has it that German and American troops, cresting on a euphoric wave of MDMA, laid down their weapons for a little while and had a party. Wishful thinking, probably, but a nice story nonetheless. During the mids, a California-based biochemistry Ph. What Shulgin discovered during his odd years studying the drug he died in just as ecstacy began infiltrating the counterculture was that MDMA had keen applications in the field of psychotherapy.
During the mid-Sixties and throughout the Seventies, more than a half-million supervised doses of MDMA were given to patients by their psychotherapists. In tightly controlled, clinical settings, physicians administered MDMA to a wide variety of patients. Whether their subjects were afflicted with depression, marital strife, post-traumatic stress disorder, terminal illness, or just general mental unhealth, doctors discovered that the drug broke down barriers to communication.
By all accounts it appeared to be a wonder drug.
Steely Dan’s Sophisticated ‘Countdown to Ecstasy’
None other than than counterculture guru Timothy Leary sagely chimed in on the possibility of the drug's future misuse, saying "no one wants a Sixties situation to develop where sleazy characters hang around college dorms peddling pills they falsely call XTC to lazy thrill-seekers. Leary, never one to discount the benefit of unproven pharmaceuticals, married his wife Barbara in just days after their first shared "XTC" experience. By the early Eighties, both the American political climate and the drug itself were undergoing massive changes. Jimmy Carter's folksy ineffectiveness gave way to the rose-tinted, right-wing fervor of the Reagan administration.
Waiting in the wings, MDMA, commonly known by the street name Ecstasy by now, was poised to enter mainstream drug culture. On the East Coast, in New York City and Boston, at such nightclubs as the Saint, Studio 54, and the Paradise Garage, gay men took to the Ecstasy that was being manufactured in city-wide bathtub operations in numbers unheard of since hippies discovered LSD. For them, it leveled emotional walls, created a deep, abiding sense of belonging, and allowed them to dance and party all night long.
The previous drugs of choice, cocaine and poppers, paled in comparison. To top it all off, it was legal.
Compactly built, with thinning, closely cropped hair and piercing blue eyes, dressed in a tight black Lycra T-shirt and dark trousers, he could pass for any other former clubgoer cautiously edging his way into middle age. Calling Jaggers a "former" anything, though, is a mistake. The man who first DJed Austin's legendary punk and new wave Club Foot, then moved on to help establish countless other clubbing institutions -- among them Dallas' Starck Club, Houston's Rich's, Austin's Backstreet, and San Francisco's Folsom -- is still hard at work, taking monthly red-eye flights to assist at various club locales across the US and the UK.
If you want to know when and how Ecstasy came to Austin, Jaggers is apparently the man to ask. The high-profile club consultant probably knows more than anyone in Austin about the early days of the Ecstasy scene and what preceded it. Back in , while spinning vinyl at Club Foot, he'd fly up to New York City on the weekends to hang out at a massive, planetarium-themed gay club known as the Saint www.
