Resist the urge to Photoshop yourself into these images. If your coworker or roommate notices that you’ve sloppily pasted yourself amongst these very, very cool partying rock stars, they will think you spend entirely too much time on the Internet looking at vintage photographs of very, very cool partying rock stars. Taken by Mick Rock and highlighted by the Retronaut, these snap hots of David Bowie, Lou Reed, and Iggy Pop, encircled by a scene comrades and admiring randoms, are very endearing and casual. See David Bowie’s immaculate, graceful poise shine through in every picture. See Lou Reed with a furrowed half-grin and permanent indoor sunglasses that do little to hide his I’m-a-little-too-awesome-for-this glare. See Iggy Pop rubbing his nose. What’s wrong with your nose, Iggy Pop? Enjoy these photos in our slideshow, and if you can afford it, purchase limited-edition prints of your favorite shots here.
