Paint It Black

I believe that Jaggar wrote this about the death of Brian Jones. I remember listening to it in a pool  hall while on the television there was Walter Cronkite and the CBS News. And report after report on the War in Vietnam. There was a romantic darkness in all of our hearts but I don’t think this song is romantic at all. It is grit. And very depressing.

These images have become iconic they are seen so often. Halsman collaborated with Dali on them. It is difficult to separate the two. They almost appear to have been created by photoshop but this of course was decades before PS.  Halsman also took wonderful pictures of famous people. This photo of Brando is one of my favourites.
