Unedited Photos Of Vintage Icons Show More Than Meets The Eye

It is the people that make the past what it was. The lives people live, decisions they make, and things they accomplish are all woven into the tapestry of history and tell the story of the time period. That is true with the people shown in this collection of photos. These people – all icons of the groovy era – have left their imprint on the era. Let’s see how many of them you can remember.

What an eclectic mix of artists all in one photo! This pic was taken in 1983 at the Forum in Los Angeles during David Bowie’s Serious Moonlight Tour. That’s Bette Midler sitting on Bowie’s lap. On the other side of Michael Jackson, we see Cher and her sister, Georganne LaPiere. The Serious Moonlight Tour marked Bowie’s first tour in five years. He had planned to embark on a concert tour in 1980 for the release of his Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album but after John Lennon was gunned down in New York in December of 1980, Bowie retreated to his Swiss home and kept quiet for a few years. That didn’t mean he wasn’t working. When he was ready, he released Serious Moonlight and resumed touring.
