When Ronnie was a little boy, he wanted to be just like his dad. “He was an alcoholic and, as a very young child, I’d drink leftover beer in his bottle or can,” he says. “When I got old enough to open the can, I’d get the first drink out of it.” His parents divorced when he was 13 and, after that, Ronnie rarely saw his father. “I didn’t want to be anything like him anymore,” he says. “I’d never seen him do drugs, so I went heavily into drugs.”
Weary Hearts Rejoice With parents rarely home, and a brother deep in a world of drugs, Jerry fell into a lifestyle modeling his family’s. “I can remember being a little kid and having to carry backpacks full of drugs,” he shares.
Ed was a successful long-haul trucker, but too much isolation on the road took a heavy toll. “It’s a very difficult lifestyle,” he says. “I made a lot of money, but I had a nervous breakdown and suffered from very bad depression.”
