Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry:
Lee-Scratch-Perry

A good friend who knew Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry well asked if I’d like to meet him and also accompany them to Island Records’ 25th Anniversary at Pinewood Studios, UK, 1987. Perry was staying in Highbury, London at the time. So I went to London and spent time in his company at home, and also Notting Hill and Pinewood. A really interesting man—I have always admired his music production. He was really easygoing and allowed me to take some great images. It was really interesting going to Pinewood with ‘Scratch’ as he shook hands with everyone from members of The Police to Eric Clapton.
