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
