From Prison to Rock God Video Director

When William McLellan was locked up in Spain, he went on a journey of introspection.

William McLellan is an English artist and director. He's best known for his music videos with some of the industry’s biggest names, including Lou Reed, The Eurythmics and George Harrison. But back when he was younger, in the 1970s, he was in a self-destructive spiral. The turning point came when he stole a scooter in Barcelona, and got into a fight with the police. His time in prison led to deep introspection.
