Billy Holiday,
Lady Sings the Blues
Billie Holiday used drugs all her life. I do not believe she would be the same musician without it, just the same as if she were born a rich white kid! Her music comes from her experiences and her state of mind, which in most cases (as she seems to show in "Lady Sings the Blues") to be filled with pain and experience...she seems road weary if you will. Being a professional musician back then was a rough, poor, drugged experience. The music of the era seems to reflect this.

As far as her musical technical ability, so what! She's great! She has more style in her fingernail than many other musicians that have the ability.
I love her music...she's going to last forever :)
