The 60s Sasson look

Previously Unheard Interview Reveals Bob Dylan Had Heroin Addiction In The Sixties

But he won the battle...

An interview with Bob Dylan from 1966 reveals that he had a heroin addiction in the 1960s.

Dylan said he became addicted while living in New York but eventually got clean. "I kicked a heroin habit in New York City. I got very, very strung out for a while, I mean really, very strung out. And I kicked the habit. I had about a $25-a-day habit and I kicked it."

The interview occurred on a private plane to Denver after a concert in Nashville.
He also mentioned that he thought about suicide more than once: "Death to me is nothing. Death to me means nothing as long as I can die fast. Many times I've known I could have been able to die fast, and I could have easily gone over and done it. I'll admit to having this suicidal thing, but I came through."

Music mourns death of Walker Brothers founder and 60s icon John Walker, aged 67

They topped the charts with The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Any More and Make It Easy On Yourself.

POP fans are mourning one of the brightest stars of the 60s after Walker Brothers founder John Walker died of liver cancer aged 67.
Teen heart-throb Scott Walker became the face of the band as lead singer, but John was the group's main songwriter and leader.
Drummer Gary Walker remembered him as "a compassionate songwriter, a fantastic guitarist and a gentleman with lots of style".
He added: "His music will live on, and therefore so will John."
John formed the Walker Brothers with Scott in Los Angeles but the group hit the big time after moving to London.
The Walker Brothers - none of whom was really called Walker - became one of Britain's biggest bands and sold 23million records worldwide.
They toured all over the world and made a string of appearances on Top Of The Pops, Ready Steady Go and The Billy Cotton Band Show.
The band split in 1968 after rows between John and Scott. But they reformed in 1974 and released another classic song, No Regrets, before breaking up for good.
John, real name John Maus, continued to make music and carried on working after he was diagnosed with cancer in December last year.
He played his last concert in March. He died at his Los Angeles home on Saturday.
John leaves wife Cynthia, sister Judy, children Jamie, Nickoletta, Adam and Heather and several grandchildren.
