Here are a few special moments
Eurythmics at the Belgium Werchter Festival 1983…30 thousand people.
Jo Cocker at the Princes trust charity concert 1988. We worked with a lot of different artists that day, and here we all are with Prince Charles and Princess Di.
Jo was probably sitting sensibly in his dressing room while the rest of us were squashed together here. I am at the back on the left in front of Brian May…I suppose our hair goes well together…

Leonard is in the second row behind the man in the white shirt and jeans.
