The father and son team of Frannie “Mo” O’Shea, left,  and Frannie  “Chappy,” Jr., assemble  scaffolding high above JFK Stadium in Philadelphia for the Rolling Stones’ performance on Saturday, June 17, 1978.  The O’Sheas were legendary in the theater and entertainment worlds. In addition to their work behind the scenes of the biggest events in Philadelphia, they also ran the hottest poker games in the business.  Back in the day, the crew worked without goggles, safety harnesses and helmets.  The Stones were promoting their “Some Girls” album © Roger Baron 1978/2014
