A real shame to hear today of Millie’s death at the age of 73.  Our previous post on this site was to talk about working on photographs of her for Brian’s Blues photo book, and how it was so hard to pick the best.  So here is another of the shots which didn’t make the final selection to remember her by; stood beaming for Brian’s camera at the Twisted Wheel Club in May 1964.  The band are rocking away in the shadows on the left of the scene, but it’s her irrepressible grin which makes the shot.  She would even leave the band to get on with it while she signed autographs mid-set… a proper star.
