unlikely pairing: Joan Jett & Jessica Alba
Me myself and eye have been a long time gone from these pages, so there's a lot of catching up to do. Where do I start? Well it's got to be this shot of Joan Jett and Jessica Alba, taken after BAM Cinematek's tribute to Susan Sarandon, at Susan Sarandon's ping pong club Spin New York. This shot kind of reminds me of the pictures that used to make the back page of Creem Magazine in the 70's - unlikely pairings backstage at rock shows. Joan looks fantastic (not that different from when I photographed her with the Runaways onstage at CBGB's in 1977).
A few minutes later, Susan Sarandon and Jessica Alba were playing ping pong. No Joan Jett didn't partake.
And Susan Sarandon looked just as fabulous as her former Rocky Horror Picture Show self, glaring from behind her during the publicity shots for the event out at BAM.
John Turturro showed up for a screening of the film he directed "Romance and Cigarettes".
And Todd Oldham made sure to get his picture taken with Joan Jett. I squeezed an image of Susan Sarandon into the backdrop. Kool Kats.
