About

Brian was a nervous guy, very shy, quite serious and maybe into drugs a little more than he should have been, because he used to shake a bit. He was lovely, though. We knew he was on heroin. I knew about heroin but I couldn’t have been very clear about it because I remember asking Robert Fraser about it. I think it was he who said to me, ‘Heroin’s no problem as long as you can afford it. There are millions of addicts, man,’ and for a second I almost thought that might just be true. But thank goodness something said to me, ‘No, that doesn’t sound right,’ so I didn’t get into it. I was lucky.

I was round at John Dunbar’s house when one of their friends came round and got out the rubber, tied his arm up, got out the needle and did the whole thing. I was so scared, but I just had to look. I couldn’t tell him not to do it because it was his life, but it was frightening to witness. I was told that the guy died the next week, so I could see what they were getting into.
