Pic of The Day: Alain Delon, Marianne Faithfull and Mick Jagger, 1967

Because even when you’re Mick Jagger, sometimes you’re not the most interesting man in the room. Delon’s style makes Jagger’s mismatched socks, beat down shoes and scruffy coif look entirely adolescent. Hell, Delon even has that uncanny French knack for turning a cigarette into a desirable accessory, while Mick is dreaming of the advent of the cell phone. Either way, Marianne’s in the proverbial catbird seat. Taken in 1967, at a discussion with director Jack Cardiff on his film The Girl On A Motorcycle, starring Faithfull and Delon.

Can’t you see that Holzer mane? Happy birthday, Baby Jane.


Make me a deal and make it straight
All signed and sealed, I’ll take it
To Robert E. Lee I’ll show it
I hope and pray he don’t blow it ’cause
We’ve been around a long time just try try try tryin’ to
Make the big time

Take me on a roller coaster
Take me for an airplane ride
Take me for a six days wonder but don’t you
Don’t you throw my pride aside besides
What’s real and make believe
Baby Jane’s in Acapulco We are flyin’ down to Rio
Throw me a line I’m sinking fast
Clutching at straws can’t make it
Havana sound we’re trying hard edge the hipster jiving
Last picture shows down the drive-in
You’re so sheer you’re so chic
Teenage rebel of the week
Flavours of the mountain steamline
Midnight blue casino floors
Dance the cha-cha through till sunrise
Open up exclusive doors oh wow!

Just like flamingos look the same
So me and you, just we two got to search for something new
Far beyond the pale horizon
Some place near the desert strand
Where my Studebaker takes me
That’s where I’ll make my stand but wait
Can’t you see that Holzer mane?
What’s her name Virginia Plain

David Lee Roth: Style King of Arena Rockers

What other hetero had the balls to make assless chaps a fashion statement? Have a Diamond Day, Rockers!
“It’s always irritated me that people say, ‘Where’s the action? Oh wow, there’s no action here; let’s go somewhere else.’ These people will never find the action.” -DLR

Photos from the world’s most renowned crime photographer, Weegee, taken on the set of Dr Strangelove!

What’s not to love about this? You’ve got Arthur Fellig, aka Weegee, taking behind the scenes photos of one of the greatest movies ever. Thanks as always to Dangerous Minds!

Marc Bolan’s got the style

Marc Bolan looks like his own groupie, and I love it. The cherubic Glam God, to end all cherubic Glam Gods.

Happy birthday, Twiggy. Pt II – The Style

101 reasons that this 1970 pic of the Bob Seger System is the greatest Rock and Roll photo ever

Because I don’t know which I love most, early Bob Seger, outta control Rock and Roll photography, or laughs.


My additions to the list:

1. Drum kit later used to build C3PO

2. I’d say 2+2+2 was on the drummer’s mind (re:kick drums).

Now for some of my faves:

11. Seriously, look at that drum concoction over the drummer’s head. Have you ever seen anything like that? Even Tommy Lee never dreamed up anything as insane as that.

24. Strange kick drum contraption doubles as heating ducts, giving us a peak into the drums future as a HVAC tech.

30. Clearly they’re in a room smaller and more cottage-like than Harvey’s, but they’re rocking the shit out of it like it’s motherfucking Cobo Hall.

44. Because it is evident that this is what rock and roll once really looked like.

68. Because Glenn Frey also came up from Royal Oak and thought about a limited period of legitimacy

71. Because I smell weed just looking at that photo.

73. They had to ask to leave work early at Radio Shack to make the gig in time. Their manager was seen puking in a trash can in the parking lot later.

75. The cumulative smells of sweat, weed, and beer that gathered in that carpeted ceiling left more than one audience member unconscious during the set.
