The British rock star was traveling around the U.S. promoting his new album Atlantic Crossing, his first recording for the Warner Bros. label (but his seventh so far in his career). Britt Ekland, formerly Mrs. Peter Sellers, was at his side in the Presidential Suite of the New York St. Regis on July 29, 1975. She caressed Rod’s bum, calling it “his best feature. He uses it on the stage. He wiggles it.” Informed that Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck also wiggle theirs, she countered, “But their bottoms are sagging badly.” As I shot some pictures, Britt directed: “You must make him beautiful — he’s extremely beautiful.” Rod’s relationship with Britt didn’t last long. After settling a bitter palimony suit out of court, he went on to marry Alana Hamilton, actor George Hamilton’s ex.
