She seems to draw her inspiration from mythology, fantasy or fairy tales and I could see her paintings used as illustrations for children’s books.

If you are a fan, you have realized that it is actually an adaptation of his music video ’Bound 2’, into a kids’ book, and you can see the whole story here. Tebbal will be soon graduating from New York’s famed School of Visual Arts, so he is a little chicken too, with, apparently, a lot of talent and humor.

He started developing his idea in 1974 after taking LSD and listening to Bach, and he now has a version that can synchronize his animations with realtime performances.

Contrarily to Young, Dolenz is not in the music business anymore and he is totally involved with the craft of his daughter Georgia: They are making beautiful wooden furniture together.

I painted it a couple days after his death. It was later used in a flyer and poster for a “Tribute to Lou Reed” night at Fingerprints Records that Rockford and several local Long Beach musicians played songs from his catalog in a tribute, held coincidentally, on the anniversary of JFK’s assassination

Elliott speaks about listening to Elvis Costello records and feeling like ‘a freak among other freaks’, about be given the ‘Folk music tag’ (which really bothered him) and about calling the addicts in his songs ‘the dependents’

Without any study, I bet most people, whatever their age have some kind of nostalgia for the music of the 60’s , because of its unique quality, but I am not sure ot can be repeated, as I don’t know if the same kind of nostalgia will be involved for the Foo Fighters, Green Day or Linkin Park, the Red Hot Chili Peppers or even Muse…

I picked Professor Longhair for my first offering because the man exudes joy, humor, and an incredible, notable style and is instantly recognized like no other, all the while playing and singing the blues! The blues is not supposed to be happy but this man pulls off a sort of ‘what the hell, don’t take it too seriously

‘Is that Neil Young?’ asked me a guy entering the studio at the same time ‘Yes! And it’s unbelievable!’ I answered. No it wasn’t unbelievable that Neil was there for his daughter’s first solo art show in Los Angeles, but it was unbelievable that I was there, among all these people. Amber was attending, of course, as was Pegi, her mother, and even Stephen Stills showed up

Do you like statues of people who died a minute ago? I don’t. I understand statues of Lincoln, Washington, historic figures of a past, when we didn’t have photos and movies, but statues of people we knew very well through concert footages and tons of pictures?

I stole a picture from the website, a ‘sculpture’ or a mask made of white tiny bears with multicolor hair and this is at least as random as anything I see at any modern art exhibit…. I am not saying I like it, but you probably get what I mean….

If you don’t appreciate modern art, you obviously will have a hard time to appreciate anything over there, and I was quite confused about a lot of things (if not everything) presented in the exhibit. Beck’s brother makes hand-knitted constructions, stretched on wood frames, like the one you can admire above, and he builds them from scratch

You can look at all these fantastic renditions on his website, and I thought that the next painting was more realistic than the previous one! You can almost smell the sweat and heat coming out of these mountains of human flesh. It reminds me some of Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch’s work

Most importantly, I wanted you to know that this request is not based on a desire to exploit you in any way. I realize that stories in the press regarding my drug use may make you think that this request comes from a desire to parallel our lives. Let me assure you that this is not the case

In writing this I went back to listen to some of Alpert’s music. First off everything sounds like a 70s game show theme. It is a blast from the past that pretty much drove me insane. Just the pitch alone was like nails on a chalk board. Is this what is considered ‘beautiful music’?
