CAVEAT: I'm only happy about this one because I like to pretend that the ceiling caved in two seconds after this photo was taken killing all three where they stood.

I like this photo, not totally unlikely, but still a whole lot of famous. Saw first on an ILM thread, I think.

Orpheus Knutt (Tom D.), Friday, 5 July 2019 08:39 (one month ago) link

In 1973 Steve McQueen flew to England to meet Reed and discuss a possible film collaboration. "Reed showed me his country mansion and we got on well," recalled McQueen. "He then suggested he take me to his favorite London nightclub." The drinking, which started at Reed's home, Broome Hall, continued into the night until Reed could hardly stand. Suddenly, and with no apparent warning, he vomited over McQueen's shirt and trousers. "The staff rushed around and found me some new clothes, but they couldn't get me any shoes," said McQueen. "I had to spend the rest of the night smelling of Oliver Reed's sick."

I dont know who Geoff Boycott is, but Alice Cooper is definitely prominent in this thread.

― One Way Ticket on the 1277 Express (Bill Magill), Friday, August 17, 2012 2:22 AM (six years ago)

I kind of feel like Alice Cooper should be exempted from this thread. He's met, and been photographed with, every person on the planet.

― emil.y, Friday, August 31, 2012 11:30 PM (six years ago)

i think someone noted before that alice cooper has been photographed with absolutely everyone who was famous in the 70s, an always with a drink of some kind in his hand.

― Perfect Chicken Forever (Merdeyeux), Saturday, October 13, 2012 6:51 AM (six years ago

Not going to grouch about multiple pix in a 2000 post thread, but safe to say that there are A LOT of Alice Cooper shots already in here.
