Indeed this picture Hendrik took is unique. I knew it the moment I saw it. It's just great. It is a monument, documentation of this tour. Friendship, smiles and happiness in the band during the shows.
Every time I used to make a new It's Only Rock'n Roll magazine
- there are now 61 issues so far - I went to the press agencies in Oslo (Reuters, AP, Rex, Camera Press etc) and looked through all their professional Stones photos from the past few months. Picking a photo for the IORR magazine was the same task as picking a photo for the IORR home page. It is about having a large selection to choose from, at a high quality. The IORR home page is more challenging to fit, because a picture should work on all screens, large, small, mobile, PC etc, but it should still be great and unique. And I think this picture Hendrik took, would be perfect for the next issue of IORR, except it would not be a surprise, so I would have to find another one.
