Intimate Snapshots of Rock Stars Including Paul McCartney, David Bowie and Debbie Harry... in Their Underpants

The intimate photo collection — which include snapshots of Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Debbie Harry, Lemmy Kilmister, David Lee Roth, Rod Stewart, and Elton John — come from the simply titled Rock Stars in Their Underpants, a book by Welsh music journalist Paula Yates, which Andy Warhol called "the greatest work of art in the last decade" upon its release in 1980.
