Bob Dylan, BBC TV Studios, London, 1965

Bob was rehearsing for a live TV show during his “Don’t Look Back’ tour. I happened to be with the Pretty Things at the ’Beeb’ canteen and there he was sitting a few feet away. I never had any ‘idols’ but Mr. Dylan had changed the times for us.  He was the biggest influence on us Brits since Elvis. He was hanging-out during a break from rehearsals so I asked if I could shoot some pictures and in his very Bob way wearing a big smile he said, “You can shoot yourself if you want to…sure it’s cool, carry on” he said so I did. I later snuck in and photographed the rest of the rehearsal unimpeded. That evening I went along to see the show in a small studio with only about 100 others. A unique, intimate and wonderful time was had by all.
