Great Junkies of the 20th Century #1

Chet Baker

Chet Baker at the height of his popularity and looks. If only youth would linger just a bit longer - allowing talent to endure and celebrate itself.

Alas, the snuff of age creeps into the mix before we even realize it's here and wipes clean all strides made in personal accomplishments.

The truly great ones last in our memory long after reality fails to live up to the image.

Well, yes, but doing lots of junk moves the process along a bit, eh?
