“I was at the BBC studios to shoot some pictures during the taping of the weekly TV show Top of the Pops and had popped upto the rooftop bar during a break. Diana was sitting at a table talking to a reporter from The Melody Maker and I asked her if it was OK to take a few pictures of her while she was being interviewed. She smiled and said that it would be fine. After she left,the reporter suggested that I send some pictures to The Melody Maker, which I did never thinking that they would be used.The following Wednesday I saw the paper at my local newsstand and there was my photo on the front page along with my name credited, Wow! I got a call from Bob Houston,Melody Maker’s assistant editor a few days later offering me a job as chief free-lance photographer, which I gladly accepted.” – Barrie Wentzell
