Actually, there is footage of Orwell (or at least of Eric Blair, since he hadn't written anything yet).

New-ish heavy metal band Ghost has six members, and all of their names and faces are a secret. The singer wears King Diamond-esque makeup and is known only as Papa Emeritus, and the rest wear masks and are referred to as "Nameless Ghouls."

I'm not sure any of those people count, though; their record labels obviously know who they are and there are bound to be pictures of them somewhere.

I don't think it would have been that big a deal. There were a number of non-secret black hard rock musicians around at the time, or before; Hendrix (and Billy Cox) and Phil Lynott spring to mind.
