Music Features Editor Jeremy Abbott wanted to write for i-D from the moment he attempted to buy The Sex Issue with Courtney Love on the cover in WHSmith in Kingston. Aged 19 and with a massive queue behind him, the woman on the checkout screwed her nose and said: “I cannot let you buy this, you’re not old enough and it is disgusting”. If ever you want somebody to be hooked on anything, opines Jeezy, get a grumpy old bat to say you can’t have it. Knowing Jeremy’s apprenticeship in fanzines, Ben Reardon made him an editor and the pair worked together conjuring up incredible features with friends and family built up around the world. Glowing highlights over the years include: watching Terry Richardson at work in his Bowery studio, meeting Javier Peres, spending the morning with Malcolm McLaren in the Covent Garden Hotel and a straight up piece on the assortment of weirdos and art goons in downtown NY with Alasdair McLellan and Aaron Bondaroff. And of course, Jeremy ran from WHSmith to the corner shop and had no trouble finally buying that “disgusting” issue of i-D.
