Reggae legend LEE 'SCRATCH' PERRY has quit smoking marijuana after more than 45 years, claiming he has "had enough". The 71-year-old Jamaican still performs live and doesn't want any drug to interfere with his music. He tells High Times, "I had all the amount I need. Since I was 25, I have been smoking pot, and it overloaded the brain. "I don't smoke anymore and I never go back on my word. "Everything I do, I overdo."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
