Hot Mess

Hot Mess, originally uploaded by deanv41.

Rolling Stone Magazine, Number 93 from October 14th, 1971 on my paintbox amidst the clutter of my studio features Ike & Tina Turner. I bought this issue at a garage sale not only for the vintage quality of it, but the huge feature on "Les Cockettes!" introduced Sylvester to the wider world almost by accident. The magazine was also very San Francisco-oriented in those years and some of its writers, like Ben Fong-Torres, are still on the literary scene.
