That Night at the Viper Room by Gavin Edwards

It’s been 20 years since River Phoenix died on October 31, 1993 at the Viper Room, where the 23-year-old Oscar nominee drank a “speedball” of heroin and cocaine dissolved into a drink before chasing it with Valium. But leading up to that night, friends and movie colleagues saw Phoenix’s descent—the graying of his complexion, the changes in his sweetly hippie-ish disposition—and warned him about addiction. In a selection from Last Night at the Viper Room: River Phoenix and the Hollywood He Left Behind, journalist Gavin Edwards traces his final days.
