Around this time Charlotte Rampling was a stepmother of sorts. We lived together in a place called ‘The Studio’ in Hugh Street. She and my father travelled to the East to pick up a damaged London to Sydney Mercedes works rally car and drive it back to Europe along the hippy trail. Of course my father filled the car with hash and even though they had papers from Mercedes they only just made it back through the border crossings and past highly suspicious customs officers by the skin of their teeth.
Introductory Issue No. 1. ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ was a huge deal culturally and musically, but it also had special significance in our young lives. Our father Tommy secured a contract from the Beatles to produce any film released of the same name as the record. He did this in a new business partnership venture with the guys who shot and edited the original clip for the song ‘A Day in The Life’.
