On the walls, there are photos of artists Russell has worked with who have died: Gil Scott-Heron glowers; the Prodigy’s Keith Flint offers a sweet, shy smile, a million miles from his Firestarter public image. That’s what he was like, says Russell. “Incredibly funny, full of life. I was aware he had a troubled side.”

Flint’s childhood was unhappy: he had depression and was addicted to painkillers. “But I don’t think anyone doesn’t have that side. It’s more a question of: ‘What are you doing about it?’ But Keith was doing 10k runs, he had horses.” He sighs. “When someone kills themselves, can’t help but feel – what if he’d waited 20 minutes? Or something else had happened?”

After Flint’s death, Russell saw a documentary about the soul singer Teddy Pendergrass, who was left feeling suicidal after being paralysed in a car crash. His therapist staged a mock funeral, allowing Pendergrass to hear his friends and family’s eulogies. Realising how much he meant to them, Pendergrass decided to live. “I thought, ‘Fucking hell, I could imagine that working.’ If Keith could have witnessed what people said after his death, how they expressed themselves at his funeral, I think that would have had a huge impact on him.”
