containing multitudes since 2004
Last week I saw a TV documentary partly about this picture, and apparently the mop tops didn't really want to do it since they were sure (like pretty much everyone else) that Liston would beat the crap out of Clay. They wanted to be "photographed with the champ" instead.
Unless someone in Miami (those who know of such things) told them Liston would be doing a tank job that night.Either way, this was the more appropriate choice. Sonny Liston in a photo op with The Beatles would have been . . .There are no words for it.
Clay is supposed to have said "Who were those faggots?" after they left.
