Tim Rose: Acknowledgements   Photo: Tim & me

For a lot of the details given in the biography of Tim Rose, I am extremely grateful to Jacques Laureys, who sent me a vast range of clippings he has gathered over the years. As well as being the person who brought Tim and Nick Cave together, he was involved in putting together a documentary film about Tim. In addition, I am grateful to Tim himself for correcting a number of errors on the original website and providing me with excellent background information, as well as a full and detailed interview. Gratitude also to Walter Ocner in New York, who spotted these web pages and told Tim about them, thus setting up a contact that led to the interview. Other sources are:
