Let's make some music, make some money, find some models for wives

The quintessential couple in the music world: the musician and the model. These are just my personal favorite musician and model pairings; some of them really loved each other, and some of them just plain looked gorgeous together.

George Harrison & Pattie Boyd

Eric Clapton & Pattie Boyd

Ringo Starr & Barbara Bach

Mickey Dolenz & Samantha Juste

Mick Fleetwood & Jenny Boyd

David & Ginger Gilmour

Jimmy Page & Charlotte Martin

Keith and Kim Moon

The models will have children, we'll get a divorce, we'll find some more models, everything must run its course.

Mick & Bianca Jagger

 Mick Jagger & Jerry Hall

Ronnie & Krissy Wood

Ronnie & Jo Wood

Keith Richards & Anita Pallenberg (I know they weren't married but they were together for quite a while and had 3 kids)

Keith Richards & Patti Hansen

There's nothing more exciting (or expensive) than when your favorite musicians decide to release re-mastered versions of their amazing albums. And even though you already have the music, you are forced to buy it again because the remastered sets come with bonus songs, pictures, etc. And so, that's what I did with Paul's first album since the Beatles' split; McCartney came not only with wonderfully re-masterd music and a dvd, but also with a book filled with lovely colored pictures taken by Linda around the time the album was made. Here are some of the scans for your viewing pleasure. Please remember to link back to my blog if you post the pictures anywhere else. Otherwise I will be forced to watermark future scans because Paul is not a free bitch and this book was really expensive.

In the book, Paul said that after the whole Beatles thing, he wanted to go back to the basics of recording, hence the beautiful simplicity of the album. He played all the instruments on the album himself, and since I can't play any, well that's very impressive indeed.

This was no doubt a very depressing time for Paul. Thank goodness Linda was there to encourage him and offered Paul "the escape" he was looking for. Here are some photos of the McCartneys on holiday in Scotland and Antigua.

A Rant

Do not come on my blog and tell me not to have a 'shit fit' when someone takes a scan of mine and posts it on tumblr without crediting. I buy these expensive books and scan the photos to share with whoever follows this blog, the least you could do is cite my blog as a source if you're going to be taking the pictures and posting them somewhere else. Is that not the nice and respectful thing to do? No, I didn't take these photos, but I usually credit the photographer or the blog where I get the pictures from, unless I don't know who the photographer is, or if the pictures are quite common and everyone has them. And if you supposedly have a better version of one of the pictures that I've scanned, as that anonymous person claimed, well damn, post your better version then, don't take mine without credit.
