The Show

The opening show for Everybody I Shot Is Dead took place at the Oh My Godard Gallery (972 Granville St.) in Vancouver on November 3rd and will continue until November 30th. If you live anywhere near Vancouver or have plans to be in the area in the next couple of weeks, I hope you'll stop in and check out the show, buy a book, a t-shirt and/or a print to hang on your wall.

Here's the opening in pictures, since a picture is worth a thousand words. I apologize in advance for the ridiculous number of photos that include me...feel free to just look at all the cool people who were kind enough to pose with me...

The gallery from the street a night or two later, long after closing.

People actually showed up to look at my pictures...or maybe they came for the wine.

Lin, Christa and Tony. Lin came on the invitation of Marc Reagan - he lives in NJ and couldn't make the show. Marc and Lin are huge Marc Bolan fans and have been involved in organizations and promote events that keep Marc Bolan's memory alive.
Rock on!

Meet Helene and Sam. They came after hearing portions of my interview on Rock 101, even though they were supposed to be somewhere else. Thankfully, they had a good time...especially having their picture taken by Ellie Gibbins under a photograph of her husband, Badfinger drummer Mike Gibbins.

I caught this picture of Ellie taking a picture of me.

Dave and Vanice were invited by my sister. They drove all the way up from Northern California to share in the festivities. How cool is that?

My hero - who also happens to be an amazing photographer - standing next to FZ.

Ellie came all the way from Florida on her motorcycle.
What can I say? She's hardcore and I'm honored to call her my friend.

My friends, Mark and Carla, who flew up to Vancouver from L.A. because they're awesome. BTW, I'm not as short as I look standing next to Mark...I'm a little over 5'8" so he must be 7'.

Tyler, me and Ellie.

Meet Kalaya Point and Andrew Eggleton. They came over from Victoria (that requires a ferry ride, thank you very much). If I'm not mistaken, they were also inspired from hearing portions of my interview on Rock 101.

Ellie dragged this unsuspecting couple off the street and held them hostage. They were on a weekend get-away from Portland and had no idea what they were getting themselves into. After Ellie finished talking their ears off, I had a go at them. They were really cool people. They left with the promise that they would order a book when they got home. We said our goodbyes. Twenty minutes later, they were back...buying a book for Heather's dad, Mike. (Hi Mike, I hope you like the book!) After they bought the book I told them they had to come to every future show. Can't wait to let them know we have an opening in Siberia.

This is the Godard Gallery gang. The girls on the end (Paige and Kelly) own the joint. Jeff (next to Kelly) hung the show. The guys on either side of me were very cool - they are correctional officers and were manning the door. That's King in front...the one with the glowing eyes. He's a real dog...obviously with a few super-powers I didn't know about.

So glad you posted these pictures. I was so disappointed not to be there but it looks like you had a great crowd and a good time. I'm so happy for you.
Thanks again for the invite, that was a thrill in itself.
