    I post regularly to the two photo threads that have been most busy recently: Unexpected photos of your favorite musicians together, and Post an artist photo that says icon to you.

    However, I frequently come across photos that don't neatly fit in either thread, so I'm going to start this one.

    Please post away: any photos you find interesting from the 65 year history of rock.

    Here are a few to start:

    David Bowie at Marc Bolan's funeral

    Eric Burdon's wedding at the Speakeasy Club London, 1967

    Syd Barrett at Melody Maker offices, 1971

    Great shot! I've always wondered what that photo process was that made the greens red and pink. Same process as Zappa's Hot Rats and a Richie Havens LP.

  8. Hey , hiraeth...
    You seem fairly handy at posting this pics. Can you do me a favour ?
    I' ve been looking for this picture of Patti Boyd laying on some railroad tracks. I can't find it. Could you try ? I'm guessing it's from around 1965 or so.
    Thanks.

    Yes! A total knockout. I'm assuming these are before she met George. I wish there were larger versions of them out there...

    Excellent shot! Seeing those silhouetted figures on the scaffolds and you know immediately where you are.
