OT too: This is funny, but a serious note, Fisherman's friend isn't good 
for vocalists. I guess cheap Whiskey and cigarettes are less bad for the 
voice and give the voice a more rocking nuance. Listen to Tokio Hotel, 
the singers voice is less rocking, because he is young and wasn't 
allowed to buy cheap Whiskey and cigarettes, instead he put some rawness 
by eating Fisherman's friend to his voice. The result of this misuse is 
a hair disease and still a childish voice. Kids, please only take 
Fisherman's friend with permission of your parents.
