^ I don't think it's bizarre to see a prog legend such as yourself in a kids' restaurant.


Oh, no, wait, ... you've already seen that one.

I love playing the word finder game in those kid menus.  I can totally rock that game.  Makes me look good in front of my daughter.

Not a kid's restaurant.  Actually, it's my favorite restaurant in town.  It's also a microbrewery.

Anyone who has a copy of Rush's Grace Under Pressure should know this one. My favorite of the trio - maybe because it's such a fluffy picture for such a dark album Heart



I don't remember which one it was but one of the band is quoted saying that the picture looks like it's from a bar mitzvah LOL

when we saw that Rush photo back when GUP came out, it was mildly nauseating and pretty much sealed the "something awful has happened to our favorite band" deal

Time ago I had a pictures book called Sex & Drugs & Rock'n'Roll with great pics of rock stars in their craziest moments, totally stoned or drunk etc. Too bad it seems with all my movings I must have lost it because I don't find it anywhere, and it was so cool Cry

The guy with the sunglasses on, or Chris Squire? They kinda both look like a couple of grandmas.

Is it me, or has Steve Howe looked exactly the same for the past 10-15 years?

Interesting you say that. I do know for a fact that acid was involved... That house in the background is Tony Stratton Smith (head of Charisma Records)'s house, where the band stayed and rehearsed for the album. They certainly did 'drop' a few times during that period but it wasn't, as Mojo magazine stated, a period "saturated in LSD." Mojo and media people like to refer to the Pawn Hearts phase as a massive acid era for the group (hyperbole which adds to the legend, but is totally overblown). The band told me that there were a few occasions where they did do acid together around this time, but not all the time and not even that often.
 
The photographer was Keith Morris, who also did all the classic Nick Drake photo shoots.
 
Oh, and the house was supposed to be seriously haunted.

Also. Thanks for the info on this photo. Nice to know a bit of the background behind it. :)

During their German tour of '71, there was a statue of Stormtroopers outside of their hotel room in Kaiserslauten (sp?). They couldn't understand it (it seemed to be glorifying that whole sordid thing). Plus, this was '71 and their labelmates, Monty Python, were taking the piss and having a laugh at Nazi Germany at every opportunity, so the young VdGG figured Germany was ripe for ridicule and decided to imitate the statue they saw. Jaxon told me that they were at that age where you'd think something like that is funny, but he said it's really not. It's just that at that age, you have to go to the absolute edge (especially if you were VdGG!!!), and they did!

I won't try to explain the rules, as it's quite complicated, but a very energetic game of skill!! So we took lots of shots of that (all of which are equally weird, and some of which may yet be used) and then had a few frames left, so got into the psychedelic Nazi's trip! When we saw the effect, the pose, infra red film and all, we instantly overcame any inhibitions about freaking people, and knew it HAD to be that!" - Peter Hammill
 
During their German tour of '71, there was a statue of Stormtroopers outside of their hotel room in Kaiserslauten (sp?). They couldn't understand it (it seemed to be glorifying that whole sordid thing).
