This just goes to show that if you’re avant-garde artist Andy Warhol, you can do even the silliest of things and still get away with it.
The candid, rarely-seen photo above was taken by rock photographer Mick Rock, dubbed as “The Man Who Shot the ‘70s.” It was part of an exhibition called UNDER-EXPOSED: Unpublished Rock Photography 1972-2008 held by the Frank Pictures Gallery in Santa Monica. Aside from Warhol, other celebrities who were photographed by Rock were David Bowie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Talking Heads, Blondie, and the Sex Pistols. In more recent times, Rock has also worked with bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Foo Fighters, and The Strokes.
