Surprisingly, somebody whom I showed this to before posting did not recognize the inspiration. So just in case, here it is.

A very interesting thing about the original photo, especially for those of us (like me) who are overly critical of their own photos:

"The picture was later voted the best rock and roll photograph of all time by Q (magazine), although at the time Smith (the photographer) did not want the picture used. She did not feel it was a technically good shot because the photograph is slightly out of focus (as she was backing away from Paul to avoid getting hit). However, Joe Strummer convinced her to use the shot. "
