Joshua Tree

When Mick, Marianne, Keith and Anita went to Los Angeles together in the summer of '68 whilst the Stones were recording "Beggar's Banquet", they hung around a lot with Gram Parsons, who was quickly becoming best friends with Keith. Gram took them to Joshua Tree National Park in the desert, and they all, along with Phil Kaufman and ever-present photog friend Michael Cooper who took these photos, ate psychedelics and tripped out with nature.  These are some of my all time favorite rare photos of Mick and Keith and their wild women. AND Gram. Enjoy.
Phil Kaufman (Gram Parsons' professional babysitter/minder/road manager) with Marianne Faithfull, pulled over at a gas station on their way to Joshua Tree, California, 1968:
