I shot the Stones
In 1964, The Moody Blues released a soulful rendition of the Bessie Banks song, ‘Go Now’. The single was a success, reaching Number 1 in the UK Hit Parade in January 1965. They had been invited to perform on Top Of The Pops, so I was sent to take some pictures.
While this was all being set up, in the interim, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones and the rest of the Rolling Stones were having a sound check. I took some pictures, but not of the whole band, due to the width of the studio. The lighting was extraordinary, because it was for TV. I was using my trusty Rolleiflex, a medium format camera with two and a quarter inch square negatives.
