Isn't that Twiggy standing over there next to Mary Quant?...

For some reason Carnaby Street always makes me think of a young Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful, too.

Werner, Jann....Co-founder and editor of Rolling Stone magazine. Jann is greatly responsible for legitimizing rock and roll and alternative music forms in our culture. He, along with Hugh Hefner, represents the most important print media publishing of the hipie era.

I'm not a big fan of Jann Wenner, but you can see him being interviewed a lot in this week's American Masters on PBS. The episode is about photographer Annie Leibovitz, who got in with Rolling Stone near the beginning in San Francisco. There is a lot of interesting film of her and other RS staffers and SF way back in the old days.

cupofjo, Leibovitz didn't shoot that first cover, but she was the photographer of several other famous Lennon photos, such as the one about 1970 with the thick wirerims (below) and the one the day of John's death, where he's curling up naked next to a clothed Yoko (who's interviewed in this show, by the way).

.

Left: Leibovitz said she took this shot basically accidentally while she was checking the light meter.
Right: TomKat, not completely by Leibovitz.


Ms. Leibovitz , of course, was the photographer who was ticking off Duane when she accompanied the Allman Brothers for a couple days in Cali for that story that came out right after Duane got killed. Leibovitz had the idea of having the whole band show off their mushroom tats, and for a second everybody was about to roll up their pants, but Duane said such a fake pose was stupid. To this Leibovitz replied something like, "Not any stupider than getting them in the first place." I can almost imagine the glare from Duane for that. Here's all she ended up with (from donnah's blog):
http://www.doggerel.com/donnah/ABB%20Overpass.jpg

I watched much of this American Masters, though. For a second they did show the one photo Leibovitz took of Duane and Gregg asleep in the station wagon, that's all.

Rolling Stone, as I recall was actually a newspaper. Not the glossy magazine it morphed into these days.

Down ON....to disapprove of or dislike.

Example: "She's down on macrame'; now she's into candles."

Precede it with the word "go" and it means something entirely different.

Strange how that works:

Down on = bad
Go down on = good (depends)

Down with = good
Go down with (as in threat "take down with") = bad

"Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to . . . " = good

I remember Rolling Stone, the paper - great seeing the pic posted here of the original format.

Re: word of day - Ayla were thinking alike on this one...immediately thought of Janis.

Groove, in a groove or in the groove...the right place. Example: "keep it up, you're in the groove. A jazz trem that progessed into common usage in the counterculture. It may have come from a reference to grooves on a record, indicating that a musical accomplishment has reached the status of being recorded for posterity on a vinyl record.

For me to ... "get in the groove " ... was to step outside
while in school to burn one.

( take a pause for the cause )

always made school just a little bit better
especially when you had to go to art or gym class after that

"You are hereby directed to present yourself for Armed Forces Physical Examination to the Local Board named above by reporting at...."

These were the dreaded words that began the draft induction notice received by thousands of 18-year-old boys during the Vietnam War. Selective Service and registration requirements for America's young men have served as a backup system to provide manpower to the U.S. Armed Forces for more than 50 years.

I received my priliminary notice for my physical, which meant that once you passed that you were gonna be called in short order. I opted for a stint in the Navy instead of Vietnam.

Boy I am glad I never had to do that! I remember filling out the card when I turned 18 though.

I hope we never have to go through that again.
