Hey all…Sorry for the current slowdown in activity here. It’s been a bitch of a week for me. I have a few irons in the fire, but they’re not ready just yet, so stand by for those (and thanks for your continued interest).
In the short term, enjoy the lovely shot of the Ramones above. I’d never spotted it before, but found it whilst perusing this collection of uncredited photos of various rock types. I believe it was excised from the same shoot of Roberta Bayley’s that produced the shot for their first album cover. My friend Rob D. once haggled manfully for a giant-sized print of said photograph with the proprietor of since-vanished record store Wowsville on Second Avenue (read more about that herculean exchange here).
In any case, I hope everyone’s enjoying their summer. Here’s another one for you to ponder. A word of warning: I don’t know the answer to this, but maybe someone does? Below is an iconic shot of the hirsute members of Long Island’s own Blue Oyster Cult. I want to say they’re posing somewhere here in New York City. Can anyone name the location? Go to it.
ADDENUM: The answer revealed here.
