"Buck Polly"




Buck Polly my friend
Another twelve stringer down
The needle of death

This is the last photograph I ever took of my friend Buck Polly. A promising 12 guitar player. Buck died of an overdose whilst I was overseas. The 'halo' was caused by the reflection of the flash gun in the mirror. I wouldn't like to suggest that Buck was an angel! 

Bert Jansch wrote a poignant song about Buck's death entitled "Needle of Death"
R.I.P. Buck Polly.
