I’m still going through my photos, so there may be changes as the book progresses. Not that I am wishing for any further additions. For those I shot who are not on the list, I hope you are healthy and live forever. If you are reading this and are on the list but are not dead, please let me know. And, if you are reading this and are on the list and are dead, I would also be happy to hear from you.

Sounds like you've led an interesting life, though so sad to see such a long list of the departed :-(
I look forward to seeing your pictures Of John Denver!

Thanks for the comment, Christine. I agree on the sad part. I get mixed emotions searching through the photos. Happy I have them, sad that they're gone.

I scanned some John D shots last week and will post about him soon.

Hi Deborah,

What a great blog you've got going here! As a Marc Bolan fan, I'd love to see what you've taken of Marc.

I love the photos you have of Lowell, too. Little Feat was always one of my favorites.

I will check back often!

Thanks for stopping by, MB fan. One of my best concert photographs just happens to be of Mr. Bolan but I am saving it for the book. When I scan the rest of his pics I'll see if there's something there I can post.

Glad you like Lowell and Little Feat. Lowell was an affable guy.

BTW, are you planning to take a stab at the contest? Do you think I made it too hard?

I'm looking forward to your input as I progress with the book. Thanks!

Hi Deborah,

I'm looking forward ot the MB shot. I certainly would love to get a copy of the book -- probably for Marc alone! Just out of curiosity, what year is the photo from?

Great to hear about Lowell. I would enter the contest, but all I recognize is one face. I am stumped on the other two!

I'll keep checking in!

Thanks for returning, Jim. Much appreciated.

My Bolan pics were taken in '75.
