Frank Zappa by Robert Davidson. How photographer Robert Davidson recovered the negatives of his famous pictures after 50 years. The most famous of the images propelled Zappa to icon status, leading him to say: ‘I’m probably more famous for sitting on the toilet than for anything else’.

Over 50 years ago, 19-year-old Robert Davidson was at the Royal Garden Hotel with band manager Tony Secunda, doing a press call for Frank Zappa‘s upcoming show at the Royal Albert Hall. Scouting around for a suitable location, he heard the American artist speaking on the phone in the bathroom and, asked through the ajar door if he could take his picture. “Some limey wants to take my picture on the John” Zappa told his wife, who was on the other end of the line. “Sure, whatever turns him on…” (taken from the Independent)
