Thursday, April 7th: Signposts and Signs

I FOUND THIS POST FUNNY – I’M NOT SURE WHY…
Rock Stars at Breakfast, plus Groucho Marx. Here’s Elvis, at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, VA. This shot is from possibly the greatest rock photobook of all time – Elvis ’56 by Alfred Wertheimer. His site has most of the great photographs, if you’ve not seen them.

FORGOT THIS SHOT FROM A WHILE AGO…
In March, at London Welsh in Gray’s Inn Road. Just before the Wales/England rugby match kicked off, a group of fans – presumably part of a Welsh choir – put on an impromptu (and properly emotional) performance.

IS THIS RON WOOD’S FINEST ARTWORK?
Thankfully portrait-free… set list for the Stones in Lima, Peru.

DJANGO, JIMMY, MERLE, WILLIE
Watch two great singers at work together… Merle’s body shapes and gestures in front of the microphone are fantastic. and it’s good to see that Willie’s still playing “Trigger” – I thought it was a permanent exhibit in the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

AN EXCELLENT USE OF TWITTER
Pete Paphides notes the passing of George Martin, in the modern style… (read from the bottom up).
