This week BBC Radio 2 has special Guest’s Right Said Fred choosing the tracks of their years. Hearing it reminded me about the pictures I took for Capital Radio earlier this year 2011. As part of their comeback tour 2011 Right Said Fred visited Capital Radio in Manchester where they did a wonderfully heartfelt interview about their lives and careers since they were massive in the 90’s. This included the death of Richard’s long-term partner, whom he described as a beautiful man, their time spent in Amsterdam where they were massive and being ripped off by their record company.
Brother’s Richard and Fred were genuinely nice guys and were a pleasure to photograph. They performed amazing acoustic versions of ‘I am too Sexy’ and ‘Deeply Dippy’ to a few members of the Capital Radio team and even handed out some instruments for them to play along. As you can see they have not aged a bit and still look and sound fantastic.
