The picture that best sums up Billy Corgan:
Maybe Hendrix sitting over his burning Strat as he fans the flames with his fingers?
I have always liked his onstage shadow across his torn amplifiers.
Keith Richards has a few too!

“MISTER TAMBOURINE MAN!!!!”
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five
When I think Sex Pistols, this is the image that comes to mind:
When I think jazz, this is the image that comes to mind:
The photo captures King, the time period, the album, and so much more - iconic as they come. As a couple writers stated, "King’s rejection of packaged pop in favor of a more authentic, personal sound... The famed cover art by Jim McCrary on the front of Tapestry shows a barefoot Carole King sitting on a wooden window seat stitching the tapestry (which is shown in more detail on the inside of the gatefold album cover). Her somewhat surprised-looking cat is in the foreground giving the photography even more of a homey feel. The room in which King is sitting is dark; light comes in through the window she is sitting next to. Once the listener actually experiences the music on the album, this photograph suggests the songwriter sitting at her window on the world, taking it all in, and writing songs that reflect what she sees in her own life and in the lives of those around her."
And a call back to the 1st Elvis Presley album.
I like this one too.
I would say most (if not all ) pictures taken by Mick Rock are iconic photos
latter period Keith Richards.
