The Who, Who's Next, 1971

About the image
Who's Next, the 6th studio album by The Who, released on July 31, 1971. The album cover was taken at Easington Colliery. It depicts the band apparently having just urinated on a large concrete piling protruding from a slag heap. According to photographer Ethan Russell, most of the members were unable to go, so rainwater was tipped from an empty film canister. The image is a reference to the monolith discovered on the moon in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
