Thank you Bloginity.com, Daniel Haim, Nick Hardy and Factory 311 for the amazing feature on The Brad Elterman story that was just posted this morning! Wow! How cool. There are photos in the feature that I have not seen in decades. CHECK IT OUT!
Today, just for my tumblr fans, I am releasing a really cool photo of Joan Jett and Sandy West from The Runaways that I took in 1978 in the courtyard of SIR Studios in Hollywood. The band was in rehearsals for their giant Japanese tour.
My biggest mistake was that I did not join the girls on that tour. My parents did not want me to cut High School for a solid week. so I stayed home. Get this, I sacrificed photographing Joan, Cherie, Lita, Sandy and Jackie in Tokyo with all the madness for some math class and PE! I learned a big lesson on that one.
