Wishing Douglas Adams a happy 60th birthday. 

Douglas Adams and me, October 1983, back when I was a 22-year old Journalist. This was a test Polaroid that Henry the photographer gave me, taken while he was testing shots. I’m glad I still have it.
(This was back when I wore colourful clothes and also back when I smoked. And I wore tinted glasses because I thought they made me look older.)
Douglas is playing Marvin the Paranoid Android’s “How I Hate The Night” song on the guitar, but you can no longer hear him singing. It was too long ago.
