Stephen Thorpe, a Chicago-born rock star from the 70s and 80s, will share his experience of going from a rock star who played with the likes of Three Dog Night, The Beach Boys and Chuck Berry to substance abuse and almost killing himself through alcohol consumption.
Thorpe will share his story Thursday, Feb. 27, at the GSU Naperville Education Center, located at 2244 95th St., Naperville. Thorpe’s presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m. in room 308.
Thorpe will tell how he chased the natural high of performing to using and abusing drugs and alcohol. Having been sober for five years, Thorpe now helps others see their lives with hope instead of the despair of drugs and alcohol.
