The Parisian duo explain in the new Rolling Stone cover story:
"I did Ecstasy for one year, from early 1993 to early 1994," Thomas Bangalter said. "The problem was that I was liking any music I’d hear, any crap – I had no critical judgment. The last time I did Ecstasy was the day Kurt Cobain died. We were at a party in Glasgow when I heard. Then we were going to an afterparty and I almost got hit by a truck." But luckily his bandmate Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo pulled him out of the road.
"That was the first night I tried Ecstasy," added de Homem-Christo. "And also the last."
