Every week, Iconic Images will be pairing-up some of our friends with the incredible archive of images we proudly represent. In a new featured called “Iconic Picks” – we do a deep-dive into the archives to fish out some absolute gems.
How about this for a Seventies supergroup? Paul and Linda McCartney are hanging out with Elton John, Ringo Starr and Harry Nilsson on a London street. The moment was captured by the brilliant and well-connected photographer Terry O’Neill in 1975, the year Wings released their Venus and Mars album and began their epic Wings Over the World tour. The guy on the right is Joe English, an American who was Wings’ drummer at the time. My research reveals that this is South Audley Street in Mayfair. Dig those threads!
