Andy Warhol took random Polaroid photos of Actors, Athletes, Celebrities and Musicians from 1970 to 1987. The musicians he took Polaroids of included John Lennon, Debbie Harry, Dolly Parton, Ric Ocasek and my favorite is a collection of several Mick Jagger shots taken in 1975.

Flea performed “Smells Like Teen Spirit” live with Nirvana on January 23, 1993 at the Hollywood Rock Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The chance performance took place because the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana were on the same bill for the Hollywood Rock Festival. Instead of playing the bass, Flea played the Trumpet.
The concept behind the album cover for Oasis’ B-side album The Masterplan was to have a young looking Noel Gallagher in front of a classroom teaching a bunch of old geezers music. Two things really stand out to me on this album cover.
There is so much going on the cover of The Beatles “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” that I can probably write a new story about it everyday. I do have to admit that this one caught me by surprise. When The Beatles released the Anthology DVD’s they included a video for “A Day In The Life” that ends with the album cover of “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band”.
Trip-Hop band Portishead was formed in 1991 in Bristol, Southwest England. The three piece band consist of Geoff Barrow, Beth Gibbons and Adrian Utley. Have you ever wondered what Portishead means? The name came from the town Barrow grew up in called Portishead in Bristol, North Somerset, UK.
The back cover of Nirvana “Nevermind” features a photograph of a rubber monkey in front of a collage created by Kurt Cobain (credited as Kurdt Kobain). The collage features photos of raw beef from a supermarket advertisement, images from Dante’s Inferno and pictures of diseased vaginas from Cobain’s collection of medical photos.
Jared Followill (@youngfollowill) of Kings Of Leon hands down has the funniest and most sarcastic humor of all the rock stars feelnumb.com follows on Twitter. His cousin and bandmate Matt Followill (@matfollowill) just posted this kinda gay video of Jared in the shower soaping up as ass.
Jimi Hendrix was once a member of the United States Army but he famously wore these British Military jackets during the height of his career. Hendrix purchased the jackets at this thrift store named “I Was Lord Kitchener’s Valet”…
Foo Fighters love Rush!!! Here’s a photo of Taylor Hawkins holding up the Rush logo for a picture. When the Foo Fighters played the Air Canado Centre in Toronto in 2009 at the end of Hawkins’ drum solo Dave Grohl announced that he wanted to introduce a couple of his friends.
The Foo Fighters video for the song “Walk” is a humorous take on the super intense Michael Douglas film Falling Down (1993). In the video while sitting in traffic, Grohl sees several bumper stickers that do their part in setting him off.
