He looks like Rod Stewart's more masculine pissed-offed brother. Sorry, all I know about NZ rock is Split Enz.

So it doesn't count right? :lol:
Some article, it doesn't say how old he was either. By the comments he was a big fish in the New Zealand rock n roll mind set though. Sorry for your loss Gray_Ghost. Bummer man.

Hello Sailor formed around 1975, they featured sax and trombone, and were kind of the ugly bad boys type teenage combo...they toured NZ's pubs and clubs relentlessly for around 4 to 5 years, I attended many great shows. The early ones were extra exciting for me due to the sneaking around as I was underage, in those far off days NZ's venues were incredibly strict (the 70's were like the 50's)...They had a few local hits on the charts, several albums, went to Australia, it didn't quite go to plan, disbanded, pursued solo careers, reformed etc, most members perform together and solo to this day....which is quite surprising based on their reputed years of heroin abuse....

RIP Dave, you were a very naughty boy

He was an incredable alchoholic back in the day according to his autobiography...he was drinking at levels and still functioning that would kill most people... :smoke:

Storm Thorgenson, the guy with the cool name who may as well be called an offical media member of Pink Floyd. His delicious visuals perfectly complemented what the band sounded like. He's one of those guys whose work is intrinsic to tens of millions of people who grew up with his album covers. Back when folks would stare at the album while getting high and asking what its all about.

The album cover often times is the gateway drug to the ears.

Could be, since it was London and they even ended the ceremony with Eclipse during the fireworks. Maybe they [i.e. Hipgnosis] had part in the event, I would not be surprised. BTW, it did reminded me too, as I watched it live. But, apparently not:

Chicago blues great Jimmy Dawkins on April 10th. His first two albums on Delmark Records are essential additions to any blues library. The second. "All For Business" pairs him with Otis Rush.

Coincidentally, I bought an oversized poster of this cover last weekend to hang in my bedroom. I figured the beds and all would help me have serene and surreal dreams.

Thats too bad about her, quite young. The article said: "Drayton also revealed that Amphlett had "expressed hope that her worldwide hit 'I Touch Myself' would remind women to perform annual breast examinations."

I can remember when that song came out. People at that time didn't talk about masturbation in public much and I can remember the receptionist at the place I was working at being very into the song at the time causing conversation to turn to women doing it for themselves quite often.

When women are talking about sex and telling others what turns them on. I listen. :idea: :wink:
