Day 395: Lithium, Nirvana
So recently I posted a song by Evanescence titled Lithium. This song is completely different to the Nivana’s classic by the same name. It is kind of interesting that the humble drug lithium get’s so much attention from rock stars. Lithium main indication is for bipolar disorder and acts as a mood stabiliser. I guess the harsh truth is many rock stars aren’t particularly psychologically stable. Kurt Cobain was one such rock star who died at that “magical” age of 27 which seems to the danger age for some of the mega stars: Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison to name the most famous of them.
