In Response to Re: George Jones, Country Superstar, Dies at 81:
George Jones was a great talent. Unfortunately he also had a lifelong alcohol problem which cost him 3 marriages and often made him unreliable as a concert performer. Wife # 3 ( Tammy Wynette ) wrote in her autobiography that in order to keep George sober she would hide the car keys from both vehicles. She once awoke at 1:00am to find that George was not at home. She drove 10 miles to the nearest bar, and there near the main entrance she saw their 10hp riding mower ! He had ridden the mower down the main highway....lol !
and Thank You for the music

Yes George had a lifelong problem with substance abuse as they say now.. and he was part of a huge group of artists with the same issues as we all know.
