Rock & Roll Celluloid Pt. 1

May 25, 2013

Ever since the first dollar profit was made in rock & roll Hollywood producers have released films based on the rock & roll culture. Below is a random sampling of various rock & roll films that featured well-known performers. Some are great, some are entertaining, some are pure garbage. But that’s rock & roll…..

May 21, 2013

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, often  using rock ‘n roll celebrities. More coming soon.

It’s Only Rock & Roll….But I’ll Buy It! Pt.1

May 21, 2013

iornrdisplay1

During the 1960’s & 1970’s about the only venue for advertising an artist’s new release nationally was in the music publications. Many stores, chain stores in particular, would do co-op advertising with certain labels and buy local advertising in local/regional nespapers hyping the label’s new releases, but that was limited to specific geographical regions.

Granted, some record companies sprung for television advertising on occassion, you might see one for the new Rolling Stones album on Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, but they were few in number. Below is a look back at various print ads that appeared in such publications as Creem, Circus, Rolling Stone, Crawdaddy, Hit Parader, Rock Scene and all the rest. Here is a random sampling, with more to come at a later date.

Four Color Beatles

May 5, 2013

When the Beatles hit it big in the early 1960’s they were mega-stars who appeared in nearly every form of media that existed. Since comic books were still a big seller during that decade it was only natural that someone license their rights for comic books. In addition to ‘official’ comic books the Beatles also appeared in numerous other comic books, sometimes just appearing on the cover. Below is a gallery of a few random samples of comic books and ocmic book panels from back in the day.
