PopSpots by Bob Egan: “The exact Spots where famous events of Pop culture took place”

Some people travel the world to make photos. Some people do it for musical reasons. Bob Egan combines both things.

Constantly looking for the origial settings where famous album-covers were taken. Some are very obvious. The Abbey Road in London. The one with The Beatles on it. Or another classic: Bob Dylan in New York.

Sometimes the artists are on the cover, and sometimes it’s just a place or an object. Bob Egan finds them all. Like the one above from an Oasis record. The photo was taken in London by Michael Spencer Jones.

Our top five of the best covers after the jump/below…
