Frank was a Hedonist; whatever feels good, do it. BUT, he did not suffer fools who'd "alter" themselves to the point of losing the creative edge. That was rule number one: don't get so fucked up that you fuck up...
Rule #2: don't do anything that might cause you to be pulled from the band because of the legality of what you did.
Note that both of these rules apply to 'road touring'. He cared not what you did in your free time, as long as you could perform to his standards on his time, and as long as you didn't stand a threat of getting busted for your activities.
So FZ accepted the recreational proclivities of his band members, as long as it posed no direct threat to his livelihood as the guy responsible for the band's activities...
This is what I understand anyway, I could be wrong.
