We’re taking a look back at some iconic Music Moments that have been captured over the years. From unlikely duo’s to vintage selfies and photobombing, we’ve got it all.
(1) Paul McCartney’s concept sketch for the iconic Abbey Road crossing photo.
Photographer Iain Macmillan only had 10 minutes to get the perfect shot of the band while a policeman help up the traffic.
In 2011, the Abbey Road crossing was given a grade II listing for ‘cultural and historical importance’.
(2) Princess Diana, George Michael, David Bowie & Elton John at the ‘Feed the World Live Aid’ concert at Wembley Stadium.
(3) Johnny Cash waiting to play at Folsom Prison, 1968.
Cash began performing “Folsom Prison Blues” for inmates in the late Fifties, more than a decade before At Folsom Prison‘s release.
(4) Portable Record Player from 1982.
A while before the MP3 or iPod were introduced, Sony created a portable record player. However critics have said that there was too much pressure on the needle which caused the recorded to get ruined quickly.
(5) Prince Rogers Nelson, 1977.
Prince was 19 when he had his photo shoot in a bid to create a brochure to send off to record companies.
