Any photos from the BBC '69 - '71?


Recommended Posts

I've done a nit of research on the topic recently.It seems the BBC had a "no camera" policy for concerts which may explain why boneless appear.

However,I do find it difficult to believe that not a single photo was taken over the course of the band's appearences at Tlthe BBC.

At the very least,you would expect to see backstage,post and pre concert shots.

So lets hope this means there's a treasure trove of BBC pictures stashed away waiting to be discovered.

This photo was taken at the BBC Playhouse Theatre (3/3/69):

If you take a look behind the band you'll see it's identical to the background in this photo - also taken at the BBC Playhouse Theatre:

The haircuts and Page's telecaster indicate that it was 3/3/69 and not 6/27/69.

Oh, neat, it would be even more neat if it was of them playing!:P

Great work Mike.This is definitely BBC 3/69.

So these two photos dispel the "no camera" policy then.

Bonzo is wearing the same sweater in an "in studio"shot wearing headphones.

One can presume that photo is from the same BBC session from 3/3/69.

There are others photos of the band members in studio but I've yet to locate them in my collection to do a comparison against your documented photo.
