‘FORTY LICKS’ – MICK JAGGER

‘FORTY LICKS’ – MICK JAGGER

This is an incredibly rare photograph taken by British photographer Arthur Steel of Mick Jagger, lead singer of The Rolling Stones wearing the famous forty licks logo on his t-shirt.

Authentically signed black and white bromide prints available online at www.arthursteel.co.uk

Arthur recalls: “I’m a great believer in luck and one day in London I was walking back to the office on Whitefriars Street, just off Fleet Street. Unexpectedly, Mick Jagger emerged from a doorway onto the pavement right in front of me. I had two cameras around my neck and so I grabbed the opportunity and politely asked if he would stop for a moment to be photographed. He kindly agreed and I literally took two frames of him against a wall, one headshot showing a diamond embedded in one of his teeth and one three quarter length shot showing his white jeans. Incredibly, he was wearing a white T-shirt with the famous Forty Licks logo on it and to this day I’ve never seen another photograph of him wearing that shirt – now that’s what I call lucky”
Location: Whitefriars Street, London
Date: September, 1977
