Candlebox - You (Official Music Video)


Candlebox frontman Kevin Martin details here the way he was controlled by drugs when he was very young and how he eventually got off them. He explains:


"I had stolen money from my parents to buy drugs and I had a real problem when I was in high school. On my 18th birthday I went to see [the Australian band] Midnight Oil and Peter Garrett just floored me as a frontman. I woke up the next morning and said, 'That's it,' and I quit. I paid my parents back and I haven't done drugs since. Well, I don't consider mushrooms and anything that's organic or natural to be a drug. So I still smoke pot every now and then. So that song's really about just saying goodbye to that dependency."


Samuel Bayer, famous for his work on "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "No Rain," directed the video.
