The photo-op has long been an established part of musical success. Want your band to get noticed? Then get ready to do whatever the nice people in the art department say. The thing is: sometimes what seems like a good idea can just turn out to a little bit … weird. Let’s take a look at some of the craziest examples of this breed.
5. Paul McCartney And Michael Jackson
PAUL: Hey, Michael, how does this dishwashing thing work again?
MICHAEL: I don’t know. I’m so rich I usually have an army of butlers do it for me.
PAUL: Me too.
4. Iggy Pop
Iggy takes to the red carpet and does his best impression of a bag of Cheetos exposed to high G-force.
3. David Bowie
An accidental shot rather than a staged opportunity, this pic of David Bowie being assaulted via a lollipop-eye interface still remains of the strangest in rock history.
2. Louis Armstrong
Louis takes on the Egyptian Gods and presumably wins.
1. Freddie Mercury
Actually, we’re not sure if this picture classifies as ‘crazy’, or ‘the greatest moment since the invention of photography’.
