Mark Morrison's life and career were plagued with countless court appearances and spells of prison stays - he built up a stage persona around these. Ironically the success of the infectious song Return Of The Mack - taken from the same titled debut album - made him in the 1990s an instant international star; he reached No 1 in the UK charts and he succeeded
where other UK artists failed: he topped the American Billboard charts at No 2 and stayed there for 25 weekks. Crazy, Trippin', Horny and Moan And Groan followed. He was the first artist in British pop history to have five Top 10 from a debut album. Not bad for someone who paid a lookalike to complete his community service sentence for him while he went on tour because he did not want to let his fans down. That's commiment.

'I photographed Mark just before his debut album Return of the Mack was released. Little did I know that some months later he was going to become the biggest selling R&B artist in the UK. He was great on the shoot day, really friendly and helpful and making sure to get the best out of our shoot.'
