JOHN LENNON  MAY 1968
Club Dell'Aretusa, Kings Road, London.
John was on his first public date with Yoko. He asked me to take some pictures, probably because I respected their privacy.
George and Patti were there too. She is the woman in the hat.

DUSTY SPRINGFIELD 1968
This photograph is Dusty rehearsing at BBC TV, Lime Grove for Dee Time with the Harry Rabinowitz orchestra, July or October 1968.
Harry Rabinowitz celebrated his 100th birthday on March 26th 2016; Dusty died of breast cancer, March 2nd 1999, she was only 59.

She was a wonderful artist and always enjoyable to be around.
(I was 17 when I made this picture)


There are so many fabulous Dusty songs. I first heard I ONLY WANT TO BE WITH YOU on my transistor radio as a teenager.
I am a big lover of Burt Bacharach songs. Here is a song he wrote with Hal David.
I think this was a male song, but Dusty makes it her own.

DAVY JONES + DUANE EDDY  JUNE 1968
BBC TV, Lime Grove, London


I was the resident photographer for DEE TIME. Also on the show this week was Donovan.
I am not sure if Davy Jones was on the show, or he just came to see Duane Eddy.
I shot this picture behind the studio.
Duane had played a wild rock 'n' roll show with Bill Haley one month before on May 1st. I was there on stage covering the wildness

HELLS ANGELS  JULY 5th 1969
Rolling Stones Hyde Park Concert, London.
Here's a picture of the HELLS ANGELS after one them threw me out and socked me on the jaw!.
I had lent my all access pass to a colleague, who had misplaced her pass, so she could make a beer/wine run. I got back in by permission of the head Angel.
NEVER LEND YOUR PASS, even to one of the team!
