The bright pink and neon green-painted wheat paste collages and sculptures of street artist Judith Supine are well known to street art aficionados, but Supine’s work has also infiltrated the galleries.

Remembering Bon Scott

On This Date, February 19th in 1980: AC/DC vocalist Bon Scott (born Ronald Belford Scott) died of acute alcohol poisoning in London while sleeping in a friend’s car. He was 33 years old. Addicted to Vinyl adds a few poignant thoughts to Bon’s passing: “Bon died just as AC/DC was becoming one of the biggest international rock acts of its time. Highway to Hell had broken the Top 20 on the U.S. album charts and the band’s back catalog was seeing a worldwide resurgence. 1980 was destined to be a breakthrough year, though it would ultimately happen with Brian Johnson as lead singer.” Rest in Peace.

Happy Birthday, Morrissey!

Andy, Johnny, Morrissey and Mike – The Smiths!

Morrissey (born Steven Patrick Morrissey), singer for The Smiths and worldwide Gay Icon was born on this day, May 22nd, in 1959. If you pay attention to this blog at all, or if you were lucky enough to know me back in the eighties, then you don’t need to be reminded of how important The Smiths were to me back in the day. I was so gay for them. Interviewing Smiths’ guitarist Johnny Marr was definitely one of the highlights of my life and career. Later on, I am going to play The Queen is Dead over and over until my eardrums cry out for mercy. Happy Birthday, Mozz!
