School Daze!

January 9, 2012

Everyone has ‘skeletons’ in their closet…. like old photgraphs from grade school, junior high and high school. As part of the Class of ’76 our 35th reunion was held several months ago and the glancing through a yearbook from back in the day and seeing the same folks 35 years later…. can be alarming, amusing & amazing. (Some people age better than others. I am not part of the former.)

Anyway, here’s a slew of grade school and high school photos of some rock star icons. Recognize any of them? Identifications at bottom of this post.  Click on images to enlarge!

Rock ‘N Roll Eye Candy

January 3, 2012

The previous post featuring the Sunset Strip in 1974 sparked some memories after seeing the Mott The Hoople and David Bowie billboards. I can remember once in the mid-1970’s driving north to Cleveland and being shocked to see a billboard along I-71 advertising KISS’ Destroyer album. I knew they had the coolest rock ‘n roll billbaords in New York, London and L.A. cause magazines like Creem, Circus, Hit Parader and the like would on occasion publish a photo of one. Seeing rock ‘n roll themed billboards promoting new albums and upcoming concerts (World Series of Rock, etc…) would be a bit more frequent over the next couple years around Cleveland and Akron but like all things, they too faded.

Here’s some billboards from ‘back in the day’, the glory years of rock ‘n roll. Click on images to enlarge!

Marketing Rock Old School Style Pt. 1

December 19, 2011

Back in the 60’s & 70’s, decades before the internet and instant access to information, a lot of us didn’t know when bands were putting pout new albums until we heard them on the radio. Some advanced news would filter in a head of time, minimally, in places like Scene, Creem, Circus, Rolling Stone, Rock Scene, Hit Parader, etc…
 
For those of us who bought all the magazines and tabloids (Melody Maker, New Musical Express, Sounds) we’d often get advance word that a new album was being released by the record company advertisements that were placed in the media. They were usually timed to see print just weeks prior to releases so we’d have a heads up on what was coming out.
 
Here are some random samples of various advertisements hyping new album releases from back in the day as seen in various music publications.

‘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.
