The strangers rescuing him from the traffic when he fell had no idea who he was. Perhaps he had forgotten too. Days earlier, he had disappeared from his bed in St Thomas's Hospital where he had been receiving treatment for liver failure caused by decades of alcoholism. Now he had given his liver another hammering. Oblivion beckoned for one of the finest recording artists Scotland has produced. And, it seemed, he faced it entirely alone.
