Tim Hardin: Black Sheep Boy

Graeme Thomson, Uncut, March 2016

50 years on from his debut, Uncut considers the extraordinary music and harrowing life story of Tim Hardin. A tale of blood, arson, rooftop chases, Olympian drug abuse, bespoke carpentry and a deathless legacy of songs. "He was truly the wildest guy I'd ever met," says one old friend. "It didn't seem like anyone rules of behaviour worked for him."
