As manager to The Move, Tony Secunda masterminded various media events and high-profile publicity stunts to propel the band to fame. These included lead singer Carl Wayne taking an axe to television sets, a Cadillac and a bust of Adolf Hitler. With a weekly residency at London’s Marquee Club, and a growing cult following, the band was offered a contract with independent record producer Denny Cordell. Secunda, true to form, turned this event into a publicity stunt, arranging for the band to sign their contract on the back of topless model, Liz Wilson.

Rock ‘n’ roll photographer during the 1960s, I have been taking photographs ever since.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but there are stories to be told behind each image. Now, I give illustrated talks, recounting my memories of a lifetime behind the lens.
