Hanging Out In The Street: my photo on new Alex Chilton bio!


just got my copy of the fab new Alex Chilton bio by Holly George-Warren, called "A Man Called Destruction" (Viking Press).  So glad my photo of Alex from back in 1977 graces the cover. Kudos to the designer who did a beautiful crop & layout - I especially love that it fans over to the side title spine of the book (or whatever they call that thing). This shot was done on the Bowery median strip across from CBGB's in 1977. It's actually an outtake from the original shot that was used as the cover of Alex's "Bangkok" 45.  With exquisite luck a raindrop landed in exactly the right place on my lens to create that bubble effect on top left.
