The book says Julian was flunking school and spending all his money on getting drunk and John was planning to start giving him more when he turned 21.

Apparently Julian wasn’t lacking money.

Julian certainly had a wild period immediately following John’s death, and it was probably a heightened version of what was happening before John’s death, and what was worrying him. I remember pictures of him in the papers, underage, stumbling out of nightclubs, often with Cynthia a few steps behind. There was a dreadful picture of him at Stringfellows, essentially a strip club then, in 1981, very drunk, with him or a friend holding a gun to his head.

Easy access to money, along with access to places most 17-year-olds couldn’t get into just because he was John’s son, saw Julian as a very out-of-control young man for a period between around the ages of 16 and 19. It’s a dark period he admits to himself.
