Klaus Voormann

Happy Birthday, Klaus!

Klaus Voormann turns 77 today. I had the pleasure of working with Klaus on my book, Starart. Not only was he one of the musician/artists in the book, he was also kind enough to give me a place to stay at his house when my sublet was ended prematurely and he contributed the art for the cover of the book. And let's not forget the Grammy he one for best album cover art for Revolver.

This is a portrait I took of Klaus for his section in Starart.

As a musician he played bass with John Lennon and was the bass player for George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh. He was also played bass with the Manfred Mann Band and is the one playing the flute on The Mighty Quinn. So glad I found this video!
