The embodiment of rock and roll, Mick Jagger, has had one of the most successful music careers in history with his band, The Rolling Stones. Frankly, after the amount of hard partying these guys have done for more than 50 years, it is an absolute miracle to still see them on stage.
Above, we see a very young Mick Jagger with Nicaraguan actress wife Bianca. The couple arrived at the famous Copacabana nightclub in New York in 1976. After being closed, Andy Warhol decided to re-open the club, and this was the premier party. Oh, what a time to be alive.
Lou Reed Attends the Eric Emerson Funeral
Below we see American musician Lou Reed talking to a friend at the funeral of Eric Emerson, a star in Warhol movies. The funeral took place in New York in June of 1975, and even though it was a tragic event, Reed looks like he is straight out of a rock concert.
Lou Reed was a songwriter, musician, and poet with a career that lasted more than 50 years, first as the main member of the famous band The Velvet Underground and then as a solo artist. You know the song "Satellite of Love?" Yeah, that for sure was Lou.
Brooke Shields and Debbie Harris Party Together
This photo is a bit confusing, as it includes a 13-year-old Brooke Shields hanging out with a 33-year-old, Debbie Harry. The Blondie lead singer and famous rocker girl Harry were attending a platinum record party at the re-opened Copacabana nightclub in NYC in 1978. Of course, Shields wouldn't get famous until the '80s, but this was prime fame time for Harry.
Apparently, a young Brooke Shields thought it would be cool to pose next to a rockstar, which, let's face it, it is. We're just wondering if Shields' parents were there at the party somewhere. Hopefully yes. Blondie were all the rage at this time, with hits such as "Rapture" and "Atomic."
The Bee Gees Celebrate Their 20th Anniversary
Nothing says 70s disco like The Bee Gees. People are still listening to their songs today, and the band stayed active until 2012 for over five decades! Of course, you would imagine that by making music like that, these guys had to know and love a good party. And they sure did.
Above, we see the legendary disco band, complete with Robin, Maurice, and Barry Gibb, posing with their respective wives at their 20th -anniversary party in 1975. The party was at the ritzy Rockefeller Center in New York. Of course, they were responsible for the iconic songs from "Saturday Night Fever."
Grace Jones Looking Fabulous
Jamaican fashion, music, and acting icon Grace Jones is a one-of-a-kind woman. Her stunning looks, her strong and fierce demeanor, her outfits, they are almost too fabulous to be human. Jones was a regular on the 70s party scene, often attending with equally famous friends, all around the world for that matter.
Above, we see Jones with friend and fashion designer Xandra Rhodes as they arrive for the Brazilian-themed "Raul Brazil" party in New York City in 1979. Back then, Jones's career as a supermodel was just taking off, and she saw plenty of success throughout the 80s as well.
