Fisher even had a favorite trip story to share, a desert tale involving former husband and expert acid trip soundtracker Paul Simon. "I had a lot of good ones," Fisher said, noting she "would like" to give LSD another go. "I had one where I was with Paul and my coat caught fire. We laughed at the flames. I had a lot of fun on acid and mushrooms and all that stuff. It was a part of my life when I was very young. I got into a lot of trouble because of it. Not the LSD, though. The other drugs."
