Noteworthy Photography

  • Burning Flags Press
    The website of Glen E. Friedman. Renowned for both his work with musicians like Fugazi, Minor Threat, Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys, Slayer (and many, many more) as well as his groundbreaking documentation of the burgeoning skateboard phenomenon in the late `70's, Glen has been privvy to (and has summarily captured on film) some of the coolest stuff ever. He's also an incredibly insightful and nice guy to boot.
  • SoHo Blues - Photography by Allan Tannenbaum
    Allan Tannenbaum is a local photographer who has been everywhere and shot everything, from members of Blondie hanging out at the Mudd Club through the collapsing towers of the World Trade Center on September 11th. You could spend hours on this site, and I have.
  • Robert Otter Photographs
    Amazing vintage photographs of New York City, specifically my own neighborhood, Greenwich Village.
  • oboylephoto
    Just some intensely cool photographs of abandoned places.
  • Rikki Ercoli's Legends of Punk
    Much like Glen E. Friedman (see above), Rikki Ercoli has managed to catch some amazing bands in their manic element.
  • Lost & Found Film
    A fascinating website devoted to undeveloped film found in vintage camers. A curious mixture of interesting and spooky.
  • Pinhole Photography by Veronica Saddler
    NYC landmarks shot through a pinhole lens. Neat-o.
  • Eugene Merinov
    Compelling shots of Punk, Post-Punk and New Wave band performing live in various long-lost venues in a pre-sanitized New York City. Great stuff!
  • Edward Colver

Great story...thanks for sharing that memory. I only saw Motorhead once - in 1999 - at First Avenue in Mpls. - it was as you remembered here also - loud (almost painfully so) and sweet. I kick myself for not making it out to see them a few more times when I had a chance.

Great story.

I'm a fan of Motorhead. I can't say I'm the ultimate fan (I only own the Ace of Spades on CD) but I loved them nonetheless. Something is odd about a Lemmy-less world. He was one of the last originals left standing, and since I became aware of Mortorhead..probably in the early 80s...they were a constant. Over the last 30 or so years they never looked like they were going to call it quits anytime soon. You questioned how the man handled his lifestyle, but in the end he had a normal 70 year term. In alot of ways he beat the odds, probably why it's strange to think of Lemmy not being around. I respect the man for living a life with no compromises. Saw Motorhead at The World (now the Hard Rock Cafe) in Times Square ten or so years ago. Glad I did.

Thanks (and for the anecdote).
In France, three month ago, we wrote a collective novel book for Lemmy anniversary (70) and Forty years old of his band.

He's gone. We can't see them in France (because Paris Attentat). In february the groupe would come back.
Too last.
Bye Lemmy.
