rolling stone's 50th anniversary

Does it matter that much? I think it matters that much to every person who is on the cover of Rolling Stone unless they’re pretending it doesn’t matter to them because they’re trying to be cool. And so it’s kind of the most honest look at an artist, because it’s keeping it about what actually matters, which is the art that’s being created. And that’s what I’m thankful for. So keep it up guys!

“There was a certain amount of relief after that Candlestick Park concert. Before one of the last numbers, we set up this camera - I think it had a fisheye, a very wide-angle lens. We set it on an amplifier, and Ringo came out of the drums, and we stood with our back to the audience and posed for a photograph, because we knew that was the last show.” - George Harrison, Rolling Stone, 5 November 1987


When Art and Music Collide: 10 of the best album covers designed by famous artists

I recently met one of my favourite contemporary artists, the American painter Walton Ford, who was in London for the opening of the new Rolling Stones exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery. Despite being a huge fan of Ford’s work, I had no idea that he’d designed the cover of the band’s greatest hits album GRRR!. Putting together a post dedicated to album art has always been on my ArtMastered to-do list, and this discovery felt like the final push I needed. So here is a selection of ten iconic pieces of music artwork, dating from 1967 to 2013, that have been designed by major visual artists. Read on to find out more about these inspiring collaborative projects, and please do message me details of your own personal favourites.

Can you even imagine being Harry? BY THE AGE of 23: In a band with so many music accolades, like, performed before 8 million people world-wide & in the top grossing tours in history; being a muse for Gucci; 1ST movie is alongside Oscar winners in a Chris Nolan film; DEBUTing as a soloist on SNL; 1ST solo cover as a musician is on Rolling Stone's 50th anniversary issue & written by Cameron Crowe. I'm excited for the album & the next mindblowing milestone. But how does H deal with the pressure?!

To tack along with my earlier “Can you even imagine being Harry? BY THE AGE of 23” I’d like to juxtapose comments from 2 people who care a lot about Harry from early days. Dermot O'Leary speaking of Harry’s wherewithal, intelligence & talent at such a young age. Contrasting that with the charmed life that H kinda lucked into. Lucked into but then worked hard & smart to grow into much more. To quote Nick Grimshaw: “Down to his last $50 millions, rock hard abs, and eyes you could drown in.”

This is super old.  I’m sorry!!!  I’m trying to catch up but also stay on topic at the same time and life is dumb and making me busy at the moment.  I really am trying to get to my inbox so if you’ve sent an as in the past week or so i’m doing my best to get around to answering everything.  I can’t promise I’ll get to it all today but i’m working on it. 

ANYWAY the last ask I answered reminded me these two were sitting in said inbox.  He IS under massive amounts of pressure.  His life must be such a blessing but at the same time terrifying.  I can’t even begin to imagine what he’s going through.  At 23 I was getting settled into NY and drinking heavily.  that’s…about it lol I think the fact that he is handling all this seemingly so well says so much about who he is as a human being and the people he surrounds himself with.
