A wee bit of fun now as I indulge in a short, quirky sequence featuring famous music biz personalities photographed reading DC Thomson publications.
Starting with this LP released in 1966, the John Mayall Blues Breakers album which has Eric Clapton reading a well known Dundee comic on the cover. The image has become so iconic, that the record has since become known as "The Beano Album".
Although it's quite an amusing sight, the album itself is seriously considered to be one of the most influential LP's in rock history because it spotlights for the very first time, the sound of a Gibson Les Paul being powered through a Marshall amp. A phenomenon which itself eventually became a bit of a cliche in rock music and was comically parodied in Spinal Tap...remember..."the numbers all go to 11"
