Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Mick Taylor and Jim Dickinson are listening to a recording of their Song Wild Horses. Taken from the documentary ‘Gimme Shelter’ from Charlotte Zwerin, Albert und David Maysles about the Rolling Stones and the Altamont Free Concert in 1969.
John Lennon is seen here with his wife Yoko Ono on the 25 November 1969 during a press conference held after he returned his MBE to the Queen.
In a note sent to the Queen accompanying the medal, he wrote: “Your Majesty, I am returning this in protest against Britain’s involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam, and against Cold Turkey slipping down the charts. With love. John Lennon.” Photo by Joe Bangay/Express/Getty Images BBC News Archives
