This shot was taken as the Rolling Stones waited backstage for the ‘Six-Five Special’ at the BBC in London. Six-Five Special was a British television programme launched in February 1957 when both television and rock and roll were in their infancy in Britain. It was the BBC’s first attempt at a rock and roll programme, an innovation and much imitated, even today. It was called Six-Five Special because of the time it was broadcast – it went out live at five past six on Saturday evening. The show was originally scheduled to last just six weeks but, as a result of its popularity, the series became open-ended.

‘My career just started just started only a few years back before I met the Rolling Stones. I was the youngest of the photographers on Fleet Street and the editors knew I loved music. Mick’s charisma made him the perfect front man. He was captivating, reigning over rock and roll with his sexual energy.’ Terry O’Neill
