Grace Jones performing at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London on October 10, 1981.
"Back then the policy for a lot of shows was you had the first three songs to get the shot and then you were thrown out of the pit. But for this one I was allowed to shoot the whole show. The bassist came on with a Grace Jones mask so we all thought it was her. The drummer wore on too. And then Grace came on with a gorilla outfit. She ripped it off and just went into it. It was quite an epic performance. I guess it's the only time I've photographed an accordion player." -David Corio
