Mick has created many key rock ‘n’ roll images, including the cover photographs for Queen’s Queen II(recreated for their classic music video ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’) and Sheer Heart Attack.
Mick recalls his first impression of Queen: “They knew they had the magic. That was firmly imprinted on me. And having told me how good they were, they played me the music – it was Queen II, which they had just finished recording. They asked me to describe it, and I said: ‘It’s Bowie meets Led Zeppelin.’ That was good; they wanted to work with me, but they wanted to know that I got it. They were picky from the get-go. It was trial by chatter…”
