“Performance shots are a waste of time, they look like everyone elses. If you want to shoot a performer,

then grab them, own them, you have to own people, then twist them into what you want to say about them.” –

Art Kane Kane knew that their image was as ‘bad’ boys compared to the Beatles ‘boys next door’ look, and he

wanted to reference that, but going into the shoot with The Rolling Stones he had no preset idea of how he

wanted to photograph them. On the way out of his hotel on the morning of the shoot he grabbed some

postcards of Queen Elizabeth II from a giftshop. He knew he wanted the band members to do something

disrespectful to this cherished symbol of The British Empire. Of course, in the end McCalls were too nervous to

run those early ‘punk’ photographs of Keith and Brian, but we’re not scared.
