Jam-Master Jay (Run DMC) photographed by Phil Nicholls
Photoshoot: 30 July 1986
Location: Liverpool, UK
"One of my earliest sessions for Melody Maker. It’s early days for me in the business and I'm sent off to meet Run DMC at their hotel in Liverpool where I find them sitting together on a sofa perusing saucy magazines.
"Hi, I'm from Melody Maker!" I repeat a number of times.
No reaction. "Er, I'm from Melody Maker. I'm here for a photo-shoot?"
After a couple more attempts at getting their attention they just fell about laughing hysterically. They were just toying with me." Phil Nicholls
This is the only individual portrait from the session and features the late Jam-Master Jay.
