Identify these musicians

I have a box of band and concert photos from a storage locker I bought, some possibly from Woodstock. Some things that I've found in the box indicate that the owner was in the music business in some capacity. I would really appreciate help with identifying these bands if at all possible. This is just one of the photos and the only one of these 2.

These two guys are Marc Bolan and Mickey Finn, members of the band T. Rex.

I also found a fan work based on this photograph, by Paolo-Art:

Bebs has already got the ident nailed, but I thought I'd add a little more info...

The picture is post-Woodstock, btw.
1970 - after Tyrannosaurus Rex but before the full-blown glam of T.Rex. The picture was originally in colour & was used as the album cover for the first album after the name change - T.Rex

  • @Thanks, it is good to have more info about the origins of the picture, I didn't even think of the album cover. – Bebs Jun 8 '17 at 7:22

    I was just thinking I'd seen that exact picture somewhere before - a quick google gave me my "D'oh!" moment ;-) Very much the fashion of the time, though, for 'headshots' to be in black & white. They even got called after the company that printed them in the UK - they were simply known as 'WalkerPrints', like Hoover or Sellotape... the brand becomes the object. – Tetsujin Jun 8 '17 at 7:25
