(Rock News Desk) The long-standing rumours of Bob Dylan having been a heroin addict appear to be true and it appears he also had a death-wish in the 1960s.

To mark the singer-songwriter's 70th birthday today an audio interview recorded in 1966 has been released. The two-hour conversation was conducted by Dylan's friend and biographer Robert Shelton on a private plane in 1966. On the tape Dylan says: "I kicked a heroin habit in New York City. I got very, very strung out for a while. I had about a $25 a day habit and I kicked it."

Later he comments: "Death to me is nothing. It means nothing as long as I can die fast. Many times I've known I could die fast, and I could have gone over and done it. I'll admit to having this suicidal thing but I came through this time. more on this story
