George Bernard Shaw about Music, Alcohol and Hell

Once again one about drug habit:

Hell is full of musical amateurs: music is the brandy of the damned.

George Bernard Shaw

Again a quote that characterizes playing music as a drug habit. This time for enduring the pains of hell. But one could read the first part of this quote in a different, not very kind way towards musical amateurs: For me as a professional musician sometimes listening to musical amateurs is like hell. Sorry, no harm intended! ;-)

I have to admit: music is also for me my “eternal brandy”! :-)

What about you? Is music like brandy to you? Which kind of brandy would you prefer in hell? What means hell to you? And is music also your salvation from hell?
