Hot Chip star Alex Taylor is "interested" in how taking drugs affects songwriting.The lead singer - who is a huge fan of Todd Rundgren, a musician famed for his use of drugs - admits he would like to see how his ability to write hit records would be affected by drug taking, but is too scared to do it.He said: "I don't take any drugs myself, as a rule, but it's interesting to hear Todd talking about his different experiences and the different drugs he took per record."I am interesting in using drugs to get inside one's head but not enough to do it. I leave that to the rest of my band! No, it stays hypothetical for me. I'm not really sure why that is, because I've actually spent a lot of time around people who have tried drugs. But I don't see it happening with me."Hot Chip's new single 'Hold On' is released next month.
