My flatmate Bill summed me up recently. “Calum,” he said.
“Ah love ye man, but when it comes tae women and relationships,
you’re a total nightmare.” I’m not a bad guy. I mean … I’m
not. Ask anyone. I’m a nurse, for God’s sake. How bad could I be?
Look, I’m not saying I’m an angel – far from it. I’m just saying…
Anyway… I’ll let you be the judge.
Leaving Skye, I arrived in Edinburgh in the early 1980s to study nursing. I
first met Bill when I moved into a shared flat in Warrender Park and got
involved with his band, Low Down. Man, I loved their music and wanted to do
anything I could to help them achieve success.
Of course, we took drugs – who didn’t?
The thing is, I was selfish – I know that now. Knew it then too, but
I was a man on a mission. The way I was living, though, it couldn’t
last. I was on a collision course with myself and my karmic reward was
waiting to kick me in the head.
