This portraitback to top

Peter Stone's reportage photograph of a Rolling Stones press call in Green Park provides a visual roll call of leading photographers of the time such as Fiona Adams, Ron Falloon, Monty Fresco and Bill Orchard. The photograph was taken a few days before the Stones's infamous appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in New York, 15 January 1967, when the band had to change the lyrics of their new single 'Let's Spend the Night Together' due to censorship. The band's fifth studio album Between the Buttons was released in the UK on 20 January 1967.
