A reality check for you baby boomers out there. The 1970's were a long time ago.
Case in point: Leif Garrett. He was recently arrested for jumping the turnstile in the L.A. subway, and, oh yeah, possession of heroin (again). Just goes to show you that even the most slickly-produced VH1-orchestrated career intervention, I mean "Behind the Music," won't help a person who just doesn't want to be helped.
The real question is, was it the drugs and the child-star exploitation that made life so tough for this guy, or was it the fact that his first girlfriend was Nicollette Sheridan?
