James Honeyman-Scott: Age 25 | Cause Of Death: POOR MAINTENANCE


(b. 1956, Hereford, England, d. 16 June 1982, London, England)

Weakened by a detoxification course for drug addiction, his death in June 1982 occurred shortly after snorting cocaine at a London party. Jim Honeyman-Scott died in his sleep at the home of a friend. His death was due to heart failure caused by cocaine intolerance. The group found a replacement in Robert McIntosh, a Honeyman-Scott sound-alike.
