3 Liters = about 60 drinks. Daily recommended amount is 1-2 drinks or equivalent per day. This is a story. DO NOT do what JB did. PLEASE follow the drinking age in your country. Also, please pardon my Greek.

He drank about 2/3 of a gallon a day. That's about what you should be drinking in water per day. I just don't understand how this is possible. A 750 ml bottle is 17 shots, plenty of alcoholics can do that. But 34 shots?! 51 shots?!! There's just no way...
BTW, I'm a stickler for accuracy and measurements, so I gotta correct you... there's no such thing as a 1 liter bottle of rum AFAIK. They come in 375 ml (half bottle), 750 ml (bottle / fifth), and 1750 ml (handle). The video says this guy drank 3 bottles. That's 2250 ml. But in another part it says he drank a handle + a fifth. That's still "only" 2500 ml. For him to drink 3000 ml, it would be exactly 4 bottles. Nowhere in the video did I hear he drank 4 bottles a day. So your math and/or understanding of bottle sizes is incorrect.
Also, on a whim, I figured your 3 L = 60 drinks was also incorrect, and I was right. Using "3 L a day" (even if it's wrong), that's 101 oz. Divided by a shot, which is 1.5 oz = 67 drinks. (Again, this guy didn't drink 67 drinks a day, but if you're converting 3 L to shots, that's the correct answer.)
You've been measurably and mathematically served. Apologies.
I did the math and if he actually did drink 3 liters of rum a day, for fourteen years he would have consumed roughly 4,050 gallons of rum. To put that in perspective the average American drinks 812 gallons of water in fourteen years.
I didnt understand a lot the thing at The end about grateful dead the 3 things in common etc Maybe I got lost in translation. Seeing that liver was terrible. In Italy we all start drink wine Very soon, in my area around 8/10 years old (Venice area, Venezia). I come from a Farmer family. We produce our own wine and sell the base for The champagne, a Big factory. My grandfather used to wake up at 4 am, feed animals, at 5.30 am He used to have breakfast with Meat fridge in oil and a Glass of red wine. At 6 am He used to go in the grapewine to work with a 2.5 litres (more then half gallon) of 13% Degree home made red wine. At 12 He used to come home and Have Lunch. The bottle was empty. For Lunch rabbit and vegetale soul, another half liter of wine, Coffee and 4/5 shots of grappa. A Nap and at 2pm He used to go to work on the grapewine again with another bottle of 2.5 litres of red wine and half bottle of grappa. At 6pm He used to come back home for dinner with empty bottles. After dinner He used to go Till the last to play cards at The local pub. Other 10/12 shots of grappa. I calcolated in one day, since He Was 14, He Daily drank 1 gallon and half of red wine and 1 liter of grappa. He died last year at 94. He felt from a tree. His organs were perfect and He Was produttive Till the last day. But for 80 years He drank all that stuff. He Was always drunk But never wasted. Like him, all his friends and people I know of his age. Nowaday if I try to do the same thing for Just one day I Wouldn't survive. I wonder why. Seriously, i cannot understand. I think in the past people used to drink much more and Have less problems. Why? Is there an explabation? My grandma (that is 92, inject 50 mg of morphine every day since 1952 and She is healthy as fuck) says because it's for The Hard work. I dont Believe it. Is it possible our body chemistry changed in the last 100 years?
Mother McCree's Jug Champions was the name of Jerry Garcia, Pigpen, Bob Weir and Robert Hunter's folk band. They went on to become the Grateful Dead. JB is Probably Pigpen, but this story is grossly over exaggerated. Just use the name of a fictional band if you're going to make up a story
My boyfriend's mother died of liver cirrhosis due to alcoholism. She was vomiting black a couple of days before dying. I guess it was coagulated blood. Her belly had been swollen for quite a while as well.
This is fantastic information, and makes me feel a lot better about my own past alcohol problem. I drank either a bottle of liquor or 2-3 bottles of wine every night for about 12 years, after coming off of a 7 year crack addiction cold turkey. I don't drink often at all any more, if I do, it's 2-3 mixed drinks or 1 bottle of wine, once a month maybe, and I spread it out over a period of hours. I pray my organs are good, as I'm a registered organ donor. Love your videos, always very informative! Thank you, and you be well!
Holy crap. If I still drank, this would cure me.
Knowledge rarely cures a drunk, tho.
I'm betting that all the Dead's keys players dying is the basis of the Spinal Tap running joke about the drummers. Although Toto's Jeff Porcaro really DID die in "a bizarre gardening accident." Turned out it was a heart attack at 37. Can happen with healthy-looking people who don't use drugs.
Jeff did complain about being very tired and worn-out with little exertion shortly before he died.
Although I was dubious about being a working musician 5 days a week. It's hard work. I can't see doing it more than once a week and I'm sober. Assuming the PA is already there. I'm thinking it didn't help his alcoholism at all. Most musicians have have a day job. That means some days you come home, clean up and go play. There's usually a drive, let's call it at least an hour. 1 way. You'd be landing in rush hour twice in one day, too. Playing out means you have to pack, even if there's a PA, you still need your own gear. That could be 30-60 minutes, depending. Set up, play, tear-down and go eat because nobody sleeps after 118 db has been in your face for 4 hours. Then drive home. Unpack what you have to and go to bed.
At which point, it's probably 3 am. Then go to work the next day. Trust me, it can be rough.
And not many serious bands won't dump you immediately for screwing around with business.
He shouldn't have been a primary candidate for transplant since he is an alcoholic. Maybe if there was an extra liver going on with nobody compatible enough to receive it aside from him and at not many hours of distance yes to avoid losing a viable organ. I don't know how your transplant system works but it is a huge NO in my country when you are a drug abuser and/or you've failed one or several suicide attempts.
The reason for it is very logical and simple. Organs doesn't grow magically from the air, so if there aren't many organs and it's a expensive procedure-recovery-treatment. The primary candidates to receive an organ must be the ones who deserve it the most and will take care of them properly (Pacient with a shit happens history: ate poisonous mushrooms not knowing it, autoinmune treatable conditions and every non alcoholic damage that a new liver can fix).
PS: Btw his parents are as bad as you can ask, his dad is or was a mofo and the mom was also one a kind. Use a condom until you're ready to raise a child (psychologically and economically) also prevents STI
I love everyone in this world, as an alcoholic I suggest cutting it back, I have tapered off (DO NOT COLD TURKEY IT RARELY GOES WELL) to about 5-6 a day average from 20 a day, which only lasted a week before I decided to cut back. If you haven't started drinking or have just stopped drinking please get help like I will be leaving for in a few days. I cannot completely quit myself. My family is latter day saints so I really don't want to hear any excuses about what your family thinks. If you care about yourself, and everyone that loves you, put that aside and get help. It IS worth it to take your life back because it has already been worth it not to be completely incapacitated for the past 6 months. I cannot imagine how good I will feel afterwords.
So someone who was on the wait list for a liver transplant because of a disease they couldn't help gets pushed away because some worthless drunk who harmed his body purposely, needs one .. He should be put on the bottom of the list. You hurt your self for so many years you pay the price. Had he been a smoker people wouldn't be so empathetic.
