Photographer Alec Byrne captured this photograph of the first meeting between Jimi Hendrix and Mick Jagger. The two rock legends met for the first time at the Top of the Pops Studio in London in May of 1967. Byrne later noted that saw Mick Jagger standing off to the side behind a curtain, watching Hendrix perform. Jagger later said he was “checking out the competition”. Byrne asked if he could get a photo of Jagger with Hendrix and was able to snap just one photo of their first meeting.

Do you remember the ‘Pom Pom Angels” episode of TV’s Charlie’s Angels? This episode, which aired in 1978, had the gorgeous private detectives going undercover to investigate the mysterious disappearances of three LA Bulldogs cheerleaders by a fanatical religious cult. As this photo shows, Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd, as Kelly and Kris, become undercover cheerleaders while Kate Jackson’s Sabrina pretends to be a choreographer. This episode came on the heels of the incredible popularity of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
