STILLS/YOUNG: THE SPECTRUM (JUNE 29, 1976)

A wide-eyed Stephen Stills spun and whirled in circles while waiting backstage before his Spectrum concert with Neil Young. Stills arrived wearing white shoes, and quickly changed into the brown leather cowboy boots he would wear during the show. Stills was oblivious to the onlookers who witnessed his unusual pre-concert warmup. He’s pictured here beginning another revolution, anchored by his right foot.

Neil Young left the Stills/Young tour a couple of weeks after this show, obligating Stills to complete the tour as a solo act with the same backup musicians.
