Queen Unseen Book
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! Photo sections in the book display my rar...
Introduction
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. NEWS: My first touring suitcase - 1973 - 1976. The paperback edition of my book Queen Unseen is available. Published by Music Press - an imprint of John Blake Publishing. Four years on from the original hardback edition, I've 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.

Ocean Images
Apart from my commercial photography I combine my love of scuba diving with creating photographic images. I wanted a simple approach and went for rangefinder Nikonos V cameras and 1600 ASA Fuji Neopan film with available light; which allowed me to dive, and enjoy the underwater world unencumbered by bulky housings, extension arms, strobes etc. Underwater reportage ! None of my images are digitally created or computer manipulated. These images are available to licence for commercial advertising, design and editorial purposes. I also have some T shirts and limited edition prints featuring so...
Queen
I was fortunate to spend many years in the 1970's and 1980's in the music business - most of those working for rock band Queen. I spent my life traveling the world with one of its biggest and best bands. An amazing journey and experience - which I am grateful to have taken part in. It's only Rock 'n' Roll - and I liked it.

Miscellaneous
This section is in the process of being updated I am certainly no authority on Queen records (though I do have a blue Bo Rhap from the limited edition of 200 - No 195 - courtesy of Fred) but items connected directly to touring, such as itineraries, jackets, T shirts, passes etc, I have a very good memory for. Avoiding fake Queen items; I would always suggest that you always ask for provenance from the seller. Who are they? How did they get it - and from who? If an item is from the 1970s or '80s it's realtively old, and should smell, look and feel old. If something is offered for sale wi...
