Oh to be Chet Baker now that spring is here, one thought, imagining driving an Alfa Romeo ridiculously fast down Tuscan lanes en route to a smoky nightclub in Lucca; after taking shed-loads of drugs, you could croon "My Funny Valentine" to an adoring audience amazed at the depth of your sensitivity, before taking a model or two back to the hotel. In later life, Chesney Jnr even seemed to be turning into Chesney Sr, an embittered old Okie and failed musician whose liking for smoking grass was cited by Baker – probably facetiously – as starting off his own love affair with drugs. In 1986, he undertook a second tour of Japan, whose drug laws were so strict that Baker had to make do with a regimen of methadone and cognac.
According to Gavin, the real Baker was a serial wife-beater and a stool-pigeon. Perhaps as a result, he played and sang superbly and even enjoyed socialising after the shows.
