Richard Shakespeare
Universally loved, Richard, aka Shakeypix, is a top-notch photographer specialising in music and live events photography, tour reportage and promo shoots. Not only does he seem to be in the right spot at the right time (he bagged the pictures of Robert Plant at his surprise appearance at The Left Bank) but he misses little. As interested in the audience as the performers, many of his pictures have captured the essence of The Wild Hare Club for which I am truly grateful.  Over time more of his pictures will hopefully appear on the site, but in the meantime befriend him and see what he posts on his Facebook page.

When Richard Met Debbie

Everybody knows the story of my meeting with Patti Smith but she’s not the only one of the artists of the New York underground scene of the late 1970s who I’ve met. Yes, of the CBGB centred scene-makers, I’ve also talked to John Cale and Richard Hell, exchanged grunts with Tom Verlaine and hung with Lenny Kaye. OK I confess to having engineered these encounters, mainly by blagging my way backstage, but my coming face-to-face with the Queen of NYC cool, Debbie Harry, that was totally unexpected.
