I'm a London based photographer and writer. Before my career in advertising photography I worked in the music business for 13 years, and from 1975 - 1986 for the rock band Queen.
My first touring suitcase - 1973 - 1976.
The paperback edition of my book Queen Unseen is published by Music Press - an imprint of John Blake Publishing. Four years on from the original hardback edition, I had chance to reflect, and include new stories, observations and memories, while editing what I felt didn't work; tightening the writing to make the book flow better. The structure and chapters remains the same as the original.
NB: This is NOT a new book, but a revised and edited version of the original hardback edition, published in 2011.
The photo sections are as in the original hardback and a forward section of pages with quotes and reviews on the original book is included.

Queen Unseen is an account of the many exciting years I spent on tour, in the recording studio, on video shoots and day to day life with one of the world's biggest and best ever rock bands. It is an insightful, enlightening and humorous account for anybody who has ever wondered what working for Queen, or a major rock band of that era really entailed. The book is not a chronological history or definitive biography of the band, but a personal story of spending my youth travelling the world and living the rock and roll lifestyle - to the full! Sex and drugs and rock and roll - but no 'tabloid' revelations about Queen's private lives.
There are photo sections in the book that contain colour and black & white images from my Queen The Unseen Archive show that has been exhibited internationally.
