I found this interview of BP Fallon’s. If you don’t already know him, he is an Irish radio DJ since he was 17, but not only…
He is also the author of three best-selling books and he’s a photographer.
BP Fallon has also worked and toured with Led Zeppelin. (He played the tom toms on “Whole Lotta Love”, live.)
He’s mimed bass guitar with John Lennon’s “Instant Karma” on Top Of The Pops, and worked at The Beatles’ Apple Records with Derek Taylor.
… and we’re not done, yet …
He became the publicist for Thin Lizzy and T.Rex, for whom he coined the term “T.Rextasy” (he was described by Marc Bolan as “Purple browed Beep” in the T.Rex hit “Telegram Sam“).
He worked as the press officer for Island Records, representing Traffic, Joe Cocker, Free, King Crimson, Jimmy Cliff, Ian Dury, and he briefly managed Johnny Thunders .
He literary photographed every single rock’n’roll star on earth and he was also deejaying live for 1.8 million people when he joined U2 on the Zoo TV tour and wrote a book about it, titled “U2 Faraway So Close”.
BP Fallon won a Jacob’s Award for his RTÉ 2fm show,” The BP Fallon Orchestra”.
He started the multi-national club “Death Disco” with Alan McGee and he DJed on the road with the groups My Bloody Valentine and The Kills.
In December 2009 he released a solo record.
His photography of Marc Bolan and the Ramones on the top of this article belongs, of course, to him…
