Greatest rock photograph of all time

Paul Simonon as Paul Bunyan / Palladium, NYC, Sept 1979

Happy anniversary to Pennie Smith Paul Simonon as Paul Bunyan / Palladium, NYC, Sept 1979for the most iconic photograph in all of rock history. I’ve seen a host of variations of this photograph, and I’m sharing my favorite one here.

Many thanks to Dave Marin for his detective work and confirmation that September 20, rather than September 21, is the proper date of this gem of a click. Even the Wall Street Journal took an interest in this historical tidbit.

You can find my book at respectable shops around the world, or go directly to PM Press and, free with every purchase, take home a digital copy, too.
