Laying out issue one…a little sneak peek.
Thinking of my friend Bill Teck tonight and these two. So strange and surreal to know that I am currently being subtitled in Italian at The Venice Film Festival. What an honor to have participated in such a special project…#theyalllaughed #johnritter #dorothystratten #peterbogdanovich
My wife is amazing. How she puts up with my schizophrenic music obsessions is beyond me. Who else could handle my 24 hour Burt Bacharach marathons, month long Springsteen stints or early morning Grunge shenanigans. Current obsession: Old Skool eighties and early nineties hip hop and rap. I can’t get through a goddamn day right now without blasting Treacherous Three, Ice T or Eazy E. Why Kelley hasn’t contacted a divorce lawyer yet is a mystery.
One of the most brutal, nihilistic and greatest albums in rock history turns twenty today. The final testament to the genius if Richey Edwards, who vanished just after the albums release, The Manic Street Preachers’ THE HOLY BIBLE still sounds like nothing else out there. If you haven’t heard it, don’t waste another second. It is a truly unique masterpiece. #manicstreetpreachers #richeyedwards
My beautiful wife, and ART DECADES co-creator, Kelley turned 27 today. She has been putting up with me for almost eight years now and I love her more and more with each passing day. She is the absolute greatest.
Francoise Hardy is everything.She was composing and writing her own material years before The Beatles and Dylan made it the norm. By the late sixties she began handling co production duties on records in a period where that was an almost unthinkable thing for a female artist to do. By the early seventies she was expertly blending and mixing genres long before the notion was even conceived by most ‘rock’ artists. She survived punk, new wave and didn’t falter in the eighties like most of her peers. More than fifty years of astonishing recordings, always ahead of her time and always uncompromising. Francoise Hardy is in my opinion the most important female artist of the rock era and holds her own with Presley, Lennon, Reed, Bowie or any other great rock icon you want to name. She is everything…
