‘Vintage’ Ads For Axes, Skins, Gear & More! Pt. 1

November 29, 2011

Back in the 60’s and 70’s I used to read all the advertisements from the guitar, drum, keyboard, hell, even the microphone companies. I’d even order their catalogues, brochures and other propaganda. (Loved it when they stuck in a free poster!). Below are a few random samples of various advertisements from the glory days of rock ‘n roll huckstering musicial gear using rock ‘n roll celebrities. More coming soon.

Some Awesome Axes Part 1

November 27, 2011

Can’t play a note of guitar but wish I owned a couple of these (and a couple in the next installment). Some unique custom designed and custom painted axes out there and here is a very small sampling. One of these sure would like nice hanging on the wall.


Cool Girls Wear Cool Shirts

November 27, 2011
Recently I saw a nephew in another town and we got to talking for a few minutes. He asked me if I was a comic book fan when I was a kid, he heard stories, and I confirmed it. And then, with a crap-eating grin he then told me he wasn’t a fan of superheroes too much until he saw a website that turned him into a fan.
So, what website was that?
His reponse? ‘Hot Chicks In Batman Shirts’!
So I checked it out. Very interesting, pretty cool in fact. These are reader submitted photos of….well, girls in Batman shirts. A couple are… risque…. the ones where a couple of them are in their Batman shirts and it appears their kid brother’s Underoos. There’s also a huge archive.

Very, very nice young ladies. Just glad my daughter is grown and in her 30’s and I don’t have any Granddaughters!

Wonder how long it’ll take my grandsons to find this website?


Proper Fashion Taste (?)

November 27, 2011
I very, very rarely wear T-Shirts. Hardly own any compared to most. Only have a couple rock ‘n roll shirts, a Mott The Hoople ‘The Hoople’ and T.Rex’s ‘Electric Warrior’. Had a T.Rex ‘The Slider’ shirt years ago but it’s long gone, so imagine my surprise when I walked into a shop at a mall in New Philadelphia recently and there, amongst all the Michael Jackson and Bob Marley shirts, was one T.Rex t-shirt depicting ‘The Slider’LP.
Yeah, I bought it, thanks to a wave of nostlagia. And thanked the young lady for remembering us old folks.Anyway, I’m the last person who knows anything about fashion taste, but I’m not in bad company owning a T.Rex T-Shirt, to wit (below); Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, Robbie Williams and Kelly Johnson of Girlsschool, Iggy Pop & Alice Cooper (above).

Among many others, I’m sure….!

And, of course, this (as-of-now) unkown future superstar!
