The photos that will remain in the history of music
“Abbey Road”, the immortal Beatles picture
Very simple and not much to say about it, it took only 10 minutes. The four Beatles left the studio Abbey Road at ten o’clock on Friday 8 August 1969, in the clothes they wore. The photographer was Ian McMillan. He climbed a ladder in the middle of the street and asked that they normally cross, without acting, without imposing the passage.
They passed four times, made six shots. Ready. As simple as that, one of the most famous scenes in rock history was born. More than four decades have passed since the making, and there are details about its history, but still, anecdotes and reeditions still appear. And it is not for less, without intention, the musicians shaped in a straightforward and forceful image. An admirable farewell: the exact synthesis for a perfect album.
Jimi Hendrix and his guitar on fire
It has been 48 years since the legendary guitarist set fire to his instrument at a full concert. The Rock is made up of several moments that have been an essential part of what it is today. One of those passages occurred on March 31, 1967, when master Jimi Hendrix decided to burn his guitar on stage. It happened in the mythical Astoria theatre, located in London, England.
Hendrix appeared before more than 1,600 people and after giving a great concert decided to place his instrument on the floor to the surprise of those present. It was so that Jimi Hendrix took gas and set fire to his Fender Stratocaster model 1965. No one could believe it. It became an epic moment because no one had ever dared to do that. That was the first time Jimi Hendrix set fire on his guitar and became one of the most memorable events in Rock history. We have several photographs, but until now we do not have a photographer as such, fans among the public took many of these.
Bob Marley and the giant joint
A photo that will remain history, because it is nothing more and nothing less than the legendary Bob Marley. We can not deny his talent, as a singer and composer. The photography of Bob with the giant joint was taken by Dennis Morris, a great friend of Marley. Morris said it was all natural, that no trick was used to take the picture. Bob said “Dennis, let me show you how to smoke a joint,” then Morris took one, two, three photos and for the fourth, he could not take more, because he was already completely high.
