“In February 1977, Blondie was playing the Whisky with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Tom had spray-painted ‘TP’ on the front of the wedding dress that Debbie was wearing. She started ripping it during the second show that night, during the song ‘Rip Her to Shreds’.” ~Photographer Donna Santisi, via 

 “I used to wear wedding dresses a lot and just rip them off during ‘Rip Her To Shreds,’ and I’d have a little black dress underneath. Wedding dresses were one of my favorite things to rip. I’d get them at junk stores.” ~Debbie Harry, Blondie, via

“It was a bright, crisp autumn day and John finally got to wear his Irish knit cable sweater, which he loved. As he hiked up this mountain path with Richard [Ross]’s two dogs, I yelled out to him and, when he turned around, I snapped this photo.”

“When I met Yoko and fell in love, I was just experiencing that thing knowing that ‘My God!’ this is different from anything before this is something other you know, this is well, I don’t know what it is, but this is fine. This is ‘Thank you, thank you, you know.’ It’s more than a hit record. It’s more than gold,. It’s more than everything it’s more than. This is something indescribable!’ ~ John Lennon, 1980 (via freshindependence)

“God, is that exciting, man! Nobody, nobody ever, anybody ever thought it would be that good! I didn’t. Nobody else did… London was the best… They fuckin’ got up and grooved, and then they listened. That was dynamite. You know, you can tell when they’re really being selfish and they just wanna dance, but they worked, man, and when I’d do a soft song everybody’d shut up! That’s too much, man. That’s really too fuckin’ much.”

Cher, by Norman Seeff. “The first shoot I did with Cher was never meant to be a session. I got a call saying she wanted to come to the studio, and she showed up with a girlfriend. On a whim, I asked her if she wanted to shoot, so there in my studio we just hung out. I shot 6 or 7 rolls very informally, and every one of them is pure Cher magic.”

DAVID GILMOUR & RICK WRIGHT: A LOVE STORY

“In the welter of arguments about who or what was Pink Floyd, Rick’s enormous input was frequently forgotten. He was gentle, unassuming and private but his soulful voice and playing were vital, magical components of our most recognized Pink Floyd sound.

“Like Rick, I don’t find it easy to express my feelings in words, but I loved him and will miss him enormously.” ~ David Gilmour

Paul McCartney, 1969. “I think before the Abbey Road sessions it was like we should put down the boxing gloves and try and just get it together and really make a very special album.”
