If there’s one place you can be guaranteed to see a rock star unarmed it’s in their own bed. This collection of images shows that these artists aren’t as vulnerable as us between the sheets but still have the same swagger under the covers as they do on stage.

The collection is taken from that ultimate gallery, AKA The Internet, and has a wide variety of stars in the sheets. Be it Joan Jett and her set of bondage gear, Jimi Hendrix and his cup of tea or all of Fleetwood Mac sharing a bed (…), the shots offer a quirky collection of images.

There’s other notable moments too, with Bob Marley sharing his bed with his one true love; football, Bowie making an epically orange-haired appearance, and a candid image of Kurt Cobain taken by Courtney Love in 1993. Whatever the moment, the situation or the bed linen, these images are a brief peek into the underbelly of rock and roll fame.

Take a look below.
