Waylon Jennings, taken at the Armadillo WHQ, Austin TX in 1974 by photographer Scott Newton from our exclusive collection, The Scott Newton Archive. 

This image became the cover of the Waylon Jennings Live album which was recorded at the same show this was taken.

Available as a signed, limited edition photographic print

Photographers notes: In 1974 Waylon was ornery and mean. He was also vital and real. He wasn't a nice guy, like Willie... he was raw and direct and just generally pissed off. (He also was never better than 1974) So, on that night in '74 when I walked to the front of the stage at the Armadillo and saw the other photographers cowering away from the stage I had a choice... cower or shoot. I chose to shoot. Good thing. It turns out he had just kicked someone's camera and hated photographers. So I shot him glaring at me....which 30 or so years later was exactly what the art director was looking for when designing the album cover.
