There would be no teenage photographer Brad Elterman if it was not for Kim Fowley. That is a fact. He gave me access to all of his wonderful and so colorful bands. Kim believed in his talent and in me to document everything back then in 1977. I would fly off to Tokyo or Amsterdam to hock my photos and to establish connections with all of the magazines a month later The Runaways or The Orchids would have a double page in Music Life in Japan. It’s a different world today. All of those cool magazines are gone, but Kim remains, still to this day an exciting, lovable and photogenic figure in pop culture today. I took this shot of him a couple of weeks ago at his Hollywood pad. Chelsea Schuchman was there too and you can see all of the photos on Factory 77. Enjoy your Sunday.
