The New Cue #131 March 2: Lost In Music Special with Dean Chalkley feat. Amy Winehouse, Pete Doherty, The White Stripes, The Strokes, Kojey Radical, The Horrors
2 March, 2022
Happy Wednesday to you,
In today’s issue we have a special interview with legendary music photographer and all-round cultural dynamo Dean Chalkley. Dean has shot a plethora of musical stars over the years, including Amy Winehouse, Arctic Monkeys, Florence + The Machine, Dizzee Rascal, The White Stripes, The Libertines and many more, and he’s very kindly agreed to guide us through some of his favourite memories of taking them. There’s an iconic shot of Amy Winehouse in here and you can find out about how Pete Doherty set himself on fire and why one of The Strokes had to vomit while Dean was trying to take their photo.
On a personal note, we were so busy putting together Monday’s edition that we forgot to mention that it’s been a year since the first edition of The New Cue landed in your inbox. Thanks to everyone who has joined us over the past twelve months, we really do appreciate all of your support and hope that you enjoy reading these as much as we enjoy putting them together. And if you really want to mark the occasion, you can send gifts, cash, cheques and baked goods to the usual address.
Enjoy the issue,
Ted, Niall and Chris
