The fabulous Mondino arrived late sporting shades and a violin case. An Italian native, he spoke almost no English and said not a single word during the photo session; he gesticulated or physically moved the band around as he wanted. He later directed videos, many of them award-winning, for a stellar roster of recording artists, including; DAVID BOWIE, MADONNA, BJORK, LENNY KRAVITZ, PRINCE, BOY GEORGE, and TOM WAITS, to name a few.
