A short time ago, I read a lady’s blog. She was based in Australia (Melbourne, I think) and got to meet and hang out with the Minds in 1981 and 1982. She crushed heavily on Jim and based on her diary entries from the time, he seemed rather keen on her too. Both in their early 20s (young and inexperienced…perhaps more on her side than Jim’s – let’s be honest!), one night things went a bit pear-shaped and Jim made a scathing remark (all by the lady’s accounts, of course…but I’m sure with it being her diary, it was all true).

She, being a little flippant, asked whether he took his make-up off before bed or not. His scathing response was “what do the other pop stars you sleep with do?”


Perhaps she could have saved herself the grief if she had seen this picture. Poor lass.
