For much of the time, they had no place to live and often crashed in their ventilation-free studio, which had no bathroom and no running water. Sometimes they slept in cars on the street. Another obstacle to the band was drugs. While Mustaine was capable of writing under the influence, his habit and those of his band mates took its toll on their bottom line.
