Rock Star 69 Sketches

I am posting this work by special request from my old friend Fred Seibert. I hesitate to post too much old work, but a request from Fred is almost impossible for me to deny. These sketches were made in June 1969 for a series of sculptures/constructions of rock musicians. They were done on unlined, 3-hole punched notebook paper. Represented are Eric Clapton, Jack Casady, Janis Joplin, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, Pig Pen and Taj Mahal. None of these remaining sketches ever became sculptures. Musicians who made it into the 3rd dimension were: John and Yoko, Jim Morrison, Frank Zappa and Jimi Hendrix. I recall Jimi's hat was made from an upside down plastic cottage cheese container with a cardboard brim. His hair was made from steel wool spray painted matte black. Unfortunately these sculptures and their preliminary sketches got lost somewhere in time and space.

Dalai Lama Photo Book

Tomorrow Never Knows

Self-portrait circa 1969. Obviously inspired by Klaus Voorman's incredible cover art for the Beatle's Revolver album. I gave my Raidopgraph a real workout on this thing. The eyes were cut out from a newspaper, and I cut out and spray-glued acetate lenses on the glasses frames. The areas of discoloration are the result of aging spray-glue.
