One the eve of his London exhibition, celebrity photographer Norman Seeff tells JAMES MURRAY the stories behind his shots of stars like the Stones, Debbie Harry and Ray Charles.
Things also got off to a rocky start when he had to photograph singer Ray Charles, who died in 2004 aged 73, for a laser disc ad.
"When he arrived a part of him didn't want to do the ad, but they were paying him good money," he says.
"He was short and testy and, like, 'Get out of my face.' But after we'd talked about creativity he was calling me brother."
