I'm Michelle, I'm 18 years old and this is my classic rock blog! It's mostly Beatles, because they're amazing ;). But also Queen, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie and others! Feel free to message me :).
On March 25, 1966, The Beatles took the photos that would become their most controversial photos ever taken. The infamous “Butcher Photo Session” would later provide the short-lived album cover for The Beatles US release of “Yesterday And Today” before they were destroyed and or pasted over.
The Beatles‘ photographer Robert Whitaker called these photos “A Somnambulant Adventure“. The Beatles are featured wearing white coats and draped with dismembered baby doll parts, false teeth and slabs of meat. Here are some alternate photos from the session…
George Harrison was later quoted as saying that he thought,
“the whole idea was gross, and I also thought it was stupid. Sometimes we all did stupid things thinking it was cool and hip when it was naïve and dumb; and that was one of them.”
