So sad to hear that the great Terry O’Neill has died. 🖤 I spent a wonderful day with him in the East End of London for this shoot in the mid 90s for Arena magazine. I used this image for my book cover. He took some of the most legendary and iconic images of movie stars and rock stars over the decades and has left an incredible legacy of historic photographs. He will be missed. #terryoneill @terryoneillofficial
