a blast from the past!
as i was flipping thru blogs the other day i came across a site that just blew me away.
'punk turns 30' is packed with wonderful photos of punk bands from the 70's, and is run by theresa kereakes. she has a ton of photos of the ramones, blondie, sex pistols . . . and the list goes on . . .
so i saw and naturally had to post something silly, (as i am really good at that), mentioning the pistol post, and something about opening for the ramones. she responded in kind, (altho she complained my site made her browser crash, i have a long history of girls tellin' me that!).
and then i get an e-mail from a jenny stern, who it seems is a good friend of theresa's, and saw my post and wanted to use the pistol post on her site 'jenny lens'. turns out she is also a great rock photog and has some great pics of the 70's punk scene also.
now, if you are like me, you have probably read a bunch of rolling stone, creem and crawdaddy mags from that good old punk era. seems these girls were very busy, and i know i need to dig out my old boxes and see what i can find in those old mags.
at any rate, go check these talented girls out.
then check out these gems . . .
