Billie Holiday and Hazel Scott enjoy each other’s company at party in 1957. In “Lady Didn’t Always Sing the Blues,” a 1973 article in Ebony magazine, her friend Ms. Scott said, “The thing I hope the kids don’t miss – the ones who are just discovered Lady – is that she took a lot of the tragedy of her life and made something beautiful out of it; something very beautiful.” The photo was taken by the legendary photographer Roy DeCarava (1919-2009).
The legendary Chuck Berry photographed by Mark Seliger
“Of course I’ve been influenced, by everyone from Bing Crosby to the
Beatles. I don’t let my music be consciously affected by anything. What
do I think of the Beatles versions of two of my songs? Very nice. But
they recorded them two, three years ago now. In fact it’s only now that
I’m beginning to feel the benefits of them – those songs ‘Roll Over
Beethoven’ and 'Rock And Roll Music’ are now on an upward trend” (1967)
- Chuck Berry
RIP to the legendary rock and roller, Chuck Berry, you are now jamming with other rock & roll legends who considered you a legend.
From Kurt Cobain to Janis Joplin, Listen to Tales Behind Legendary Rock Photos
Photographer Mark Seliger came to regret telling Kurt Cobain not to wear t-shirts with writing on them to Nirvana’s 1992 cover shoot.
“It’s like telling a teenager not to do something,” Seliger says. “The first day Kurt was wearing a shirt with a weird little animated duck on it that said, ‘Jerry Garcia still sucks.’ And then the following day, Kurt was wearing his signature sweater and big dark sunglasses – and then he opened up the sweater and it said, 'corporate magazines still suck.’ And I was kind of laughing and I said, 'Would you mind maybe not wearing that shirt?’ And he said, 'Nope.’ And I said, 'What about the sunglasses off?’ And he said sure. And every time he took his sunglasses off he crossed his eyes.”
“When I hang up with you, you’re going to call him-” Lance gasps. “Or text him- and figure out a meeting place and tell him straight out exactly how you feel.” Lance can almost see the stern expression Hunk probably has on his face right now. And he’s right. He has to talk to him, he has to show Keith that he’s serious and that it’s important, no matter how uncomfortable and awkward it’s going to be, that they hash this out.
That Lance tells Keith that he never had a chance. He’s in love and he’ll regret it for the rest of his life if he keeps avoiding in. Whether Keith takes to it or not is another story entirely but Lance can’t focus on both the anxiety of opening up and being vulnerable and the anxiety of rejection.
“Can you do that, Lance?” Hunk asks, gently. Lance’s expression steels.
“I don’t have a choice.”
Lance can hear the smile in Hunk’s voice as he says, “go get ‘im, tiger.”
Republic Holonet News - latest edition. We value you, subscriber!
We have exclusive previews of the upcoming art exhibition at the Naberrie Gallery on Naboo!
The exhibition, ‘Rook: The Lost Art’, is a showcase of previously unseen and private works by legendary war photographer Bodhi Rook, donated by his granddaughter Aya in exchange for an undisclosed sum (rumoured to be in the vicinity of two billion credits) being donated to the Republic War Orphan Fund.
Rook famously started out as a cargo pilot for the Empire before bravely defecting to the Alliance to Restore the Republic with valuable information which contributed to the destruction of the first Death Star. A veteran of the Battles of Scarif, Endor and Jakku, Rook turned to photography as a way of coping with the horrors of war and his images are studied as an integral part of Galactic History, as well as by aspiring art students everywhere. After the fall of the Empire, he turned to art full-time but kept his lens focused on the aftermath of war.
The exclusive images above were intended to be part of his first ever exhibition - a series of portraits of his closest allies in war (see also: Chirrut Imwe, Baze Malbus, Mon Mothma). But the pictures of the legendary veterans Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor were never revealed until now.
“My grandfather told me that he had changed his mind about making these public after he developed them, because they were too intimate for such private people. There are plenty of images of them out there, but he felt these ones showed too much of the people he knew.” Said Aya, who inherited the collection after her grandfather’s death. “After speaking to their children and grandchildren, we agreed that now was the right time to share them with the galaxy.”
“So much has been written about our parents,” Calix Andor and Nava Andor-Rook wrote in a press release on behalf of the family, “but nothing has matched up to the reality that our dearest Bodhi captured in these images. There are plenty of pictures of them taken during the war - in battle, in recovery and in intense moments. But these are images not of soldiers but of a man and woman starting a new life, with a family on the way.”
The pictures are dated roughly one year after the Battle of Endor, when the couple - who married during the war - were living on Naboo, and six months before the birth of their first child, son Calix (see also: Rogue Squadron, Fall of the First Order, Triumph of the New Republic).
The exhibition will also include exclusive images of such heroes of the Rebellion as Luke Skywalker, a young Poe Dameron and the hard-hitting outtakes from Rook’s previous exhibition Left Behind: The Forgotten Children of the Empire.
Tickets for Lost Art are currently sold out with more rumoured to become available in the coming weeks.
