We remember Corey Feldman from 1970s flicks such as Stand by Me, The Goonies, and The Lost Boys, those are the movies that made him famous. But being a child actor can be hard, and he succumbed to the pressure and began doing drugs and got into drinking while he was filming Stand by Me with River Phoenix.
That turned into an addiction to cocaine, heroin, and sex. He had numerous drugs arrests over the years, which led him to rehab in 1991.
His career was shot, however, and he would never recover from it. When he got out, he had over $200,000 in legal fees, so he did shows like The Two Coreys and a few B-rated movies to pay the bills.
These days, he’s in a band called Truth Movement, which he started in the 1990s, and in 1991 they released an album called “Still Searching for Soul.” “I’ve had probably some of the darkest, most depressing times anybody could imagine. But in the end, I’m a positive guy.”
