Rolling Stone has published the gonzo journalist’s final written words. He left the note for his wife before committing suicide in February.

No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun – for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax – This won’t hurt.

It was titled Football Season Is Over and appears in the new Rolling Stone with the Rolling Stones cover.
