Indeed, and this was on a good day when he's all spiffed up for an album cover shot.

Maybe that’s why the Japanese PR people were hilariously trying the ‘Ron Wood as savior’ angle to sell the new single.

Or they thought the other way around: «Let's make him worse. It'll sell..»

Looking at those photos sure brings to mind the image the Glimmers were representing - as in the baddest mofos on the planet to ever plug in electric instruments and totally rock out like nobody business smoking smiley

.

The Black & Blue Cover is not only one of the Stones' finest record covers but one of the best and most original covers in Rock album history. As a photographer, as much as a lifetime Stones fan, I find the photograph simply excellent, portraying with true originality the bold, in-your-face Stones, stripped of all the bs and imposed vanity, long before that trend became fashionable. I also find the cover a perfect match to the songs on Black&Blue, and an honest commitment to the brand-new member Ronnie.

The double-LP format was probably even chosen just to give this amazing group photo the chance to be used commercially, just as taken by Hiro (except for some strip cuts top and bottom).

Interestingly so, the photos were taken only 2 months before the release of the album - quite unthinkable timing nowadays.

The individual portraits taken during or around that same session were first published in the album's sheet music booklet that was released shortly after the LP, printed on excellent high gloss paper. As far as I know that booklet was never re-issued.

The large book by TASCHEN also contains several photos from that session (some of which already reproduced in this forum).

The first time I was in the area, I made sure to visit Sanibel Island as the location of that historic photo shoot.

Well, I may have overstated it but on the cover of the Japanese Fool To Cry/Crazy Mama 45 posted by exilestones above it basically says 'with Ron Wood now an official member the Stones are back and they're better than ever.'

They're on top among my all time most favourite pix of the band.

I'm Black & Blue from the Rolling Stones ... but I love it

No way. All grainy black and white...and the lyrical interpretations are laughable

Thanks for all these great contributions!

Are there any others shots from the darkness/cigarette waving session?

I love their white clothes, and used to spend time thinking about what they were writing with their fag trails . .

(1) 980?

What can it all mean?
(ok, nothing).

Also, forgive my ignorance (and lack of just wiki-ing it), but who was Hiro?

Hiro is Yasuhiro Wakabayashi - Japanese fashion photographer.
He was a disciple of Richard Avedon.
He created the cover with the art director Bea Fleiter - Brazilian designer and art director.

I reckon that would be considered false advertising in many countries!

Amazing photos...Mick looks so trashed. You can really see the effects partying took, particularly around the eyes. He looked younger during the Steel Wheels tour.
