River 4 Ever

River Phoenix (Dead in Hollywood - Issue #4)

On Halloween Eve in 1993, River Phoenix joins his friends at Johnny Depp's Viper Room (8852 Sunset Blvd.) Phoenix makes his way to the club's restroom around 1AM to do some drugs with several of his drug dealer friends, when one of them would offer him a hit of heroin. It was pure-grade Persion brown. Almost immediately after snorting the heroin, Phoenix begins trembling and shaking violently. He then turns to one of his friends and vomits. Another of his friends decides that it's a good idea to give him a valium to calm him down."
