"Sticky Fingers" was the ninth British and eleventh American studio album by The Rolling Stones. Released in April 1971, it was the first release on the band's newly-formed label, Rolling Stones Records. Mick Taylor's first full-length appearance was on "Sticky Fingers", and it was the first Stones album to not to feature any contributions from founding guitarist Brian Jones. However, this still doesn't answer the number 1 question: Who is that on the cover?

Listen below to hear Sam Talkington explain one of the strangest and most iconic album covers of the 1970s, including the famous artist who designed the cover, and why we may never know who's actually on the front of the album.
