A BIT OF HISTORY: DAVID BAILEY

Iconic and official photographer of the Swinging ’60s in London, Bailey also photographed the Stones for the following album covers: THE ROLLING STONES NO.2, 12 x 5, THE ROLLING STONES, NOW!, OUT OF OUR HEADS (U.S. edition), GET YER YA-YA’S OUT, and GOATS HEAD SOUP (for which he also did the album design). Also, one of Bailey’s photos of the Stones was used on a Times Square billboard in NYC to promote the DECEMBER’S CHILDREN album in 1965. Mick Jagger was best man at Bailey’s wedding to French actress Catherine Deneuve in 1965. A year later, Bailey planned to make a film titled ‘The Assassination of Mick Jagger’, but the project never got off the ground.
