James Taylor

The Fire & Rain singer's family packed him and his recovery medication off on a plane to paradise as a 30th birthday gift, not realising that the methadone he was taking would be seized as soon as he landed.

As a result, Taylor had to cycle 10 miles a day to get his methadone allowance from a clinic that doubled up as Bermuda's leading mental institute.

He recalls, "The guy who was dispensing my medication every day also ran a mental clinic. It was an insane asylum really, an old-fashioned sort of snake pit nut house... and over the period of a week he kinda twisted my arm into doing a concert for his inmates.

Carly Simon To Release Memoir


Carly Simon James Taylor

The You're So Vain hitmaker initially secured an agreement with bosses at Random House to write an autobiography in 2012, but after a series of delays, she has finally finished her memoir, titled Boys in the Trees, which will be released on 24 November (15) through Flatiron Books.

In a statement announcing the tome, Simon teases she'll be revealing a lot of untold stories from her life that she's previously kept secret.

It reads: "This book is my way of going back through my childhood, my music, my romances, my marriage... and trying to make sense of it all. I've been working on it for so long that it feels like my third child... but now it's time to send that child out in the world. It's one of the most frightening - and exciting - things I've ever done."
