Birthday Party with Frank via King's Cross, 1983
Birthday Party with Frank via King's Cross, 1983

Frank and I at my birthday party, don't ask me which one, on route we needed to pick up cigarettes in Kings Cross (how it used to be) we both got out the cab at about 10:30pm and of course had no idea of the response we would get, we could have made a killing and been killed. So off to the party we went.

Prudence once said 'it's the parties you don't read about which are the parties you want to be at.'

And now with the creation of social media, how right she was.

All this incredible work and talent, so why did it all go so terribly wrong? In the book of course, don't think I'm going to give away my ace card just yet do you?.
