Below we see the legendary British musicians John Entwhistle, Pete Townshend, and Keith Moon, all members of one of the greatest rock bands that ever lived – The Who. Maybe John has that confused expression because the party is at a subway station in New York. An actual subway station, underground.
The party was for the 1975 film “Tommy,” based on the rock opera album by The Who, of the same name. If you never saw the movie, we strongly recommend you look it up and watch it immediately. This band knew how to party and rocked much of the 70s.
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.
Michelle Phillips and Warren Beatty Party at Sardi's
Michelle Phillips rose to fame as the vocalist of the popular 60s band The Mamas and the Papas, once being called the "purest soprano in pop music." The band wasn't without their fair share of controversy, but their music was undeniably iconic. Below, we see the beautiful Phillips next to famous actor Warren Beatty at a party in 1975.
The party was in honor of the opening night of the Broadway play "Man in the Moon," written by the Mamas and the Papas member John Phillips. The celebrities are sitting at a table at New York's famous Italian restaurant, Sardi's.

Everybody knows Robert De Niro, the actor, but few are aware that his father, Robert Senior, was a famous painter. Yes, the talent really does run in the family. De Niro Sr. was an American painter who focused on abstract expressionism and had several art shows in some of the country's most prestigious galleries.
Above we can see De Niro Sr. wearing a black cowboy hat and looking at the camera with those very unmistakable "De Niro" eyes. The portrait was taken next to a friend at an opening party for one of his shows in NYC's SoHo Art Gallery in 1974.
