David is getting ready for a concert in Paris as the 1976 European tour was winding down. This shot was taken by Andrew Kent at L’Hotel where David was staying.
The photographer was no stranger to Paris. He lived there as a teen with his aunt, uncle and cousin on the Isle St. Louis, “right down the street from Marc Chagall and Georges Pompidou.”
He considers his ’76 European road trip with David, culminating with the shots in Paris, as a highlight of his career. “This was the best work I’ve ever done for anybody, before or after.”
