The Stooges, Album Cover Outtake, 1969

By Joel Brodsky
About the image
The Stooges posed in a stacked position for the album cover photo session with photographer Joel Brodsky. The story goes that Iggy wasn't quite enjoying the session, thinking that Brodsky was posing the group just like The Doors appeared on their debut album cover (you be the judge!), so he took a stage dive over his bandmates and split his chin on the concrete floor. He went off to the hospital, got several stitches, and returned to finish the shoot! 

The final shot used for the album cover had his black eye and stiches carefully airbrushed out.
