1:17 am
so, the "graceland" songs kind of, you know, came out. and then we shot -- >> jimmy: they were like -- ♪ what kind of camera should we get? tell me, can we get a discount ♪ [ laughter ] >> "we're going back to south africa. should we go to b&h?" i was going, "yeah." ♪ i want to get a discount ♪ [ laughter ] >> so, that was sort of the kickoff. and then, you know -- >> jimmy: there's so many goodies in this guy, in "the music bo l ainke take a look at some of these shots here. can we bring up one? a shot of diddy in times square. > inomtomorrow, isn't he? >> jimmy: yeah, he's going to be on the show tomorrow. how did you do that? >>hael ts l,inwat -- thawas wain the middle of the nigh reay lythone e timnito i tins ph in times sqre e olethe night. sola, p i oedrsnnt ouweelves.er ye t e > w ts,re.werehe >> yes, we were there. we planted ourselves in the ddle of the, you know, median heinerly e terarth ae in terlyad itwewant ed uil it got dark. and diddy came out and he --ed eang riri he was just w that anyway, right? [ laughter ] he dresses like a king. >> he walked right out of the motor home with a hat on. i was like, "my gosh. that's fantastic." luckily, we had the chair in the center.
1:18 am
so, it worked out fine. but he wanted to change the chair. and i said, "it's 2:00 in the morning. we can't do it." >> jimmy: what did he want? like a lawn chair or something? >> no, he wanted a different -- a bigger throne. >> jimmy: look at this next shot . ok at that. nirvana on the cer. and i love it says -- what is that? "corporate magazines still suck." >> yeah, that was the shoot that i thought was going to end my career. and the reason why is that, you know, there's so many times when you ask people to, kind of, do things and you guide them. and nirvana was the group that, you know, really came out of the grunge movement. you know, you couldn't really ask them to do anything. so, i flew to australia. i saw the -- i met the band and they were, you know, they were great. they were wonderful me. dave and chris were great and kurt was really lovely, too. but he kept wearing these -- supporting these bands by writing, you know, the band's name on the t-shirt. and when they would perform, he'd have like flipper or, you know, whatever band they were supporting. so, you know, i asked him, you know, "don't wear a t-shirt with writing on it, if you don't mind, because, you know, we want
1:19 am
to be able to, you know, not have it compete with the magazine." and he was fine with that. so, of course, they drive out the next day to the location and he walks off. and he's weing this shirt that says "corporate magazines still suck." so, i learned the great lesson that you just don't ask people to not do something. [ laughter ] ven immy: they'll do it more. >> yeah. >> jimmy: step it u they came back. and look at that photo right there. >> and this picture was taken the following -- i guess the following record "in utero." we asked them to wear brooks brothers suits, and they did. so, you know, i guess things worked out. and that was, kind of, our answer. and then this picture was the portrait that we did for the inside. and then two months later, you know, kurt was gone. so, that was the memorial photograph for "rolling stone" for kurt. >> jimmy: you took so many good pictures. so many great ones in this book. when we come back -- you agreed to do this. and i'm so excited about this. our audience came down here tonight, not even knowing this. >> i think this a very, very good looking crowd.
