When the huge outpouring for Prince took over the internet I thought it was a shame that how we feel about the musicians we love is massively put out there after the person dies. I think we should celebrate our icons while they're still here and can feel the love.
This is why I am celebrating the birthdays of musicians I've had the privilege to photograph, and in this case, also publish his artwork in Starart for the world to see.
Today Klaus Voormann turned 78. And it is my hope that he stays around for a long, long time. Check out the video below...it's perfect for today as he's recording and mucking around in the studio with his pal, P. McCartney.
From Klaus's A Sideman's Journey released in 2009, this video is like a birthday party. Enjoy...
Pick up your new copy of the trade edition of my first book, Starart.
And a print of his painting, Tushe, numbered and signed or a straight print.
