Cream by Art Kane, taken in 1968.

Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker were a new breed of blues band, so Kane decided to shoot them on a railroad track in Chads Ford Pennsylvania, outside of Philadelphia, where the band was performing. After all, what better way to portray the blues than backed by the melancholy of a railway track and the setting sun inflaming Ginger Baker’s hair. Drummer Baker, elated over the news that morning of the birth of his son in the UK, would leap up often during the shoot, and roll down the embankment of the train track into bramble bushes, requiring Art’s assistant to clean him up. Later, at lunch at a diner in rural Pennsylvania, Baker marched up to a group of firemen who were laughing and pointing at the group of longhaired freaks and said…”What are you laughing at? Look at you in your silly hats”
