"I got a call from Pink Floyd’s office to go and shoot some pictures of the band for their American visa applications. The lads never really liked to pose for photos but this time they had no choice. This shot of Dave is the best passport photo I’ve ever seen, sort of looks like a familiar biblical figure. The U.S. Customs authorities wouldn’t dare refuse him entry after seeing this picture." - photographer Barrie Wentzell on his picture of David Gilmour from 1975.
The beautiful image at the top is by jamesf63 courtesy of the website deviant art and is titled ‘paul_mccartney_68′ & is based upon one of my favorite photos of Paul by photographer, Barrie Wentzell taken in 1968.
