Funny what you learn on the interwebs. On this thread I learned that the cover of It's Only Rock and Roll
is based on a famous picture of a Nazi procession
Yep, so it is.
Who knew? Then again the cover was by Guy Peellaert, who appeared to think all the Rolling Stones were Nazis. He painted them in a famous scene in Rock Dreams that I was going to put here but thought better of it, since it's edging towards illegality these days. (Here, for as long as Photobucket allows it up. Not work safe.) But since they knew that's what Peellaert thought of them, why did they ask him to do the cover of IORR? Assuming I've got the dates right. Of course it's entirely possible none of them knew how he'd come up with the arrangement of figures for the cover.
