The Pretenders, 1980

The Pretenders
London, 1980

One morning I received a call to say that Jimmy’s body had been found on the sofa of a girl’s flat. He had died of heart failure due to cocaine intolerance. After we fired Pete because his drug problems were affecting his performance, he drowned in a bathtub with a needle in his arm. Common stuff. Not unique to us.
