Church advertising

Stairway to Sky Grafitti Advertizing inspired me to get tickets….. The last word is IROCK ,yet to be completed, which was an FM radio station in the 70s. It was very common for very popular groups here in NYC to advertise this way by using five-plane skywriting. I went to see Zeppelin @ Madison Square Garden in 1977 at one of their most legendary concerts of all time. You still see the t-shirt reprints. Scott Muney handed me a Led Zeppelin button at the entrance while collecting toys and donations wearing a Santa hat. I still have 2 of the button somewhere. [will snap it for here]. I have photos of that concert in B&W and color as well. They let me in with 2 beer cans in my Minolta/400mm telephoto lens packed camera bag. [as long as it wasn’t glass bottles it was cool – now everything is like homeland fuckin securitied out]] This was taken at the intersection of 13th and 57th St in Brooklyn. The Church is St. Frances de Chantal which is still there. Minolta XE-7 50mm Tri-X overexposed horrendously and later water-stain-damaged. I’ll fix the dust later: Sorry no time lately. This lousy neg was by itself and I was just about to throw it away when I took a closer look at it. Zep, Rock on forever! View On Black
