With my best wishes for 2012, and your Curatorship of the NPG.
With reference to your namesake Paul Freestone (below), who took some iconic photographic portraits of my friend, Tony McPhee who, together with his band the 'Groundhogs', was always asked to support the American blues legend John Lee Hooker (whenever he toured the U.K in the 1960's) they later became a famous band in their own right playing at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 and 'Top of the Pops' > Knebworth 2011 .......... would you have an interest in any of these portraits for the NPG?
Hello Clare, Welcome to BPH! Are you related to the Oxford Photographer, Paul Freestone who took many iconic archival photographs of now famous Rock bands in the 1970's, specifically my friends - the blues legends, The Groundhogs .....who backed the great John Lee Hooker whenever he toured in the U.K in the 1960's; played at the famous Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 and were the support band for Led Zepellin in the early 1970's?
Do you have many photographs by Malcolm Arbuthnot (I have been helping Sir William to document his life) and Brian Duffy (who I was initiating his biography with, with a friend who was an Art Editor with 'The Daily Mail' in the 1970's, shortly before he sadly died) ...... in the BPG?
