The band is: Kevin Armstrong (Iggy Pop, David Bowie) - guitar, Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey) - sax/guitar, Matt Hector(Iggy Pop) - drums, Ben Ellis(Iggy Pop) - bass and Gillian Glover - vocals.

RIP Sir Peter

Sorry to hear of the Death of Sir Peter Hall. I shot this for The Times in 2009 and was later asked to print it for his wife Nikki who had it framed for their office wall. It was a pleasure to take his photo, such a characterful face and mischievous smile.
