The March of the Black Queen

1973 - The Nude Sessions

1973, November - Queen didn't sold too many copies of their first album, so for the second album they wanted the photographer who took the pictures of Syd Barrett, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, and David Bowie with Mick Ronson: Mick Rock. The first rolls of film that Mick Rock shot became what he now calls The Nude Sessions. The band, rail-thin and pouty, were stripped to the waist, and "would have looked like a bunch of schoolgirls if they'd had boobies. The other three didn't quite want it, but Freddie loved it, of course. Those pictures got them their first serious attenttion, although it was somewhat disparaging. Must have been from the NME - they were in the knocking business". Freddie Mercury explains: "The concept of Queen is to be regal and majestic. Glamour is part of us and we want to be dandy".
