In between playing the piano and joking around with Sting, a longtime friend, Crow seemed in perfect health and showed no signs of strain from the split. "She was a complete pro and great fun to work with," says video director Nigel Dick. "I just tried to make sure she was in a good place, to keep the energy going. I felt she enjoyed herself." Two weeks later, when Crow revealed that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, "I was shocked," says Dick. "I wouldn't have known in a million years, not for a second, that this was coming."
