“It comes incredibly easy; it’s not work to me. I love writing songs more than anything in the world. I love sitting at my piano with a glass of wine and the lights kind of low and some incense and an idea. There’s nothing I’d rather do. It’s what I do.“ 

— Stevie Nicks, Kerrang Magazine – November, 1981

Four Debbie Harry (including one with Iggy), two Patti Smith (including one channeling Dylan), two David Bowie, Jim Morrison, Led Zeppelin, Prince, and Janis – that’ll do! Follow the links for sources and credits.

2017 was a very difficult year for me personally, (mental illness, family medical crises, work crises, etc etc etc), and I can’t thank you all enough for taking such good care of me. I wouldn’t have gotten through it without you.

John Lennon & Yoko Ono photographed by Bob Gruen, 1973.

Bob Gruen: In March of 1973 I drove John and Yoko to Greenwich, Connecticut where they wanted to look at several houses for sale. First, they stopped at my mother-in-law’s house so they could relax and get used to being out in the country. They went out in the backyard where John and Yoko played around in a rowboat.
