Johnny Cash - The Finger say it all

Probably the most iconic and famous photo of Johnny Cash is the one of him flipping the bird.

The finger photo itself was shot at a Cash concert in 1970 at California’s San Quentin prison by photographer Jim Marshall. The pose was the result of Cash’s response to the request: “John, let’s do a shot for the warden.” Marshall has since said it was “probably the most ripped off photograph in the history of the world.”
