‘On this particular occasion, in the winter of 1964-65, I got a call saying we were to meet at the St Regis hotel: we were going to visit Salvador Dalí, my hero. I was thrilled. When we arrived at his suite, Dalí beckoned us in with a cane and no one spoke; opera music was playing so loudly that the room was vibrating. He grabbed Andy by the arm and plonked him in a chair, pointed at me to get my camera ready, then grabbed a huge Inca headdress, dramatically placing it on Andy’s head. It was pure theatre. Dalí was making Andy so nervous – which was unusual: it was usually him who made other people tongue-tied – that he was guzzling back wine. I’d never even seen him drink before. He kept looking as if he was ready to bolt for the door, and then finally he said: ‘David, we’ve gotta go.’ David McCabe
