It's the same story as in "Wreckers of Civilisation". Nothing of this 
is mentioned in Deborah Curtis' "Touching from a Distance" nor in Mark 
Johnson's "An Ideal for Living", nor in the liner notes for the "Heart 
and Soul" box set.

According to Ford in "Wreckers...", none of the other TG members 
acknowledge any of Gen's claims to have been such good friends with 

However, of course they might've kept it a secret for some reason. But 
it seems strange that Deborah Curtis hasn't mentioned the warning phone 
call that Gen claim to have placed only hours before Ian's death.
