Just finished 'The Hurricane' an unauthorised biography of Alex Higgins (obviously!). I'm feeling a bit sad at the moment because it's like a legend has been difused before my eyes. Great talent, unique showman, but a very flawed human being who has ended up with nothing and is now sleeping on the floors of whatever 'friends' he has left.
His attitude towards authority, fellow professionals, women (especially) and the press was disgraceful and I feel like one of my childhood heroes has been exposed as a fraud.
Well written but, I'm sorry I read it.
