What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Drug Revelation"
For years, rumor has it that Bobby Brown had introduced Whitney Houston to drugs- but Michael Houston, one of the singer's two older brothers, has revealed to Oprah Winfrey that the real story was quite different. On OWN, Michael told Winfrey that "I feel responsible for what I let go so far. We were always, you know, being together most of the time and her following behind me- I taught her to drive. We played together- everything that you do together as you're growing up- and then when you get into drugs, you do that together, too, and it just got out of hand." He said Whitney was in her 20s, already famous, had money and was traveling around when they started doing drugs, long before her 1992 mariage to Brown.
