@fitheach I was almost obsessed with Marilyn Monroe (and the circumstances of her death) as a teenager. I had a massive poster of her looking surprised at the hot air blowing up from a grate stuck on my wall.
@fitheach Well yes. Obviously but there were traits there are were subsequently repeated later (for me)
Troubled childhood, misunderstood high profile genius, drug dependency, hangers-on coupled with a conspiracy theory.
Kurt Cobain, Ian Curtis et al.
'They were so vulnerable. Why didn't we do anything ? If only we could have helped her/him !'
It is the often discussed correlation between genius and an unstable personality. The creativity that comes from living on the edge, and often going beyond that point.
@fitheach ...but it was a truly iconic image. To me at least.
Please remember on the same wall, I had a 3 page interview with Mark. E Smith pinned up with Blu-Tac.
