Sex Pistols : “God save the Queen” la foto de la reina y el arte de los Sex Pistols

One of the best album covers of all times is The Sex Pistols “God Save The Queen.”  The cover depicts a defaced picture of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Jaime Reid.  Several variations of “God Save The Queen” artwork exist and are actually in legal terms (an offense of Contempt of the Sovereign  in English Law, a form of treason)

The image of Queen Elizabeth II is an official 1977 Silver Jubilee portrait by Royal photographerPeter Grugeon.  Although it looks like the negative was reversed.

On the occasion of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee on June 7, 1977, The Sex Pistols attempted to interrupt the Jubilee festivities by playing on a boat on the River Thames.  Police officials forced the boat to dock and a scuffle with fans ensued, resulting in the arrest of several people associated with The Sex Pistols, inchluding the band’s manager Malcolm Mclaren, cover artistJamie Reid and clothing designer Vivienne Westwood.
