Harry Goodwin - Star Snapper Harry Goodwin Dies

Photographer Harry Goodwin, who snapped stars including The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Michael Jackson during their visits to the Bbc, has died.

The Brit was resident photographer at the Tv corporation's hit music show Top of the Pops from 1964 to 1973, when he captured images of some of the world's biggest rock stars.

He died at the age of 89 on Monday (23Sep13) after a short illness.

His agent Stuart Littlewood said several stars contacted Goodwin in his final days, including Sir Paul MCCartney and Bee Gees star Barry Gibb.

The Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess took to Twitter.com to pay tribute to Goodwin, writing, "Sad to hear of the death of Harry Goodwin - a true unsung hero of music photography."
