‘It is not the greatest rock’n’roll rebellion – refusing to hold the album the right way up to protect his modesty – but it was a sign of the rotten mood he was in. It was, recalled the photographer, David Montgomery, today, like battling with the devil. The cover, showing a pair of tight jeans, was conceived by Andy Warhol. Montgomery remembers Mick Jagger giving the distinct impression he did not want to be there. “I suppose they were just being very rock’n’roll. It was trying. It was like battling with the devil. I was photographing a lot of famous people at the time. I’d shot the Queen [and] top politicians, and I always adopted the philosophy that I just do my job as best I can; I don’t need to go home with these people. It was obvious who was in charge that evening: the ultra-confident Jagger. Maybe he was just in a bad mood that night and I just happened to be the poor bugger taking the pictures.’ David Montgomery
