Tickled to see this shirt at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame exhibit and really surprised to see that it actually has pink in the whitish squares! Pink that matches the bathroom.
Mad for plaid! Hahaha. Go ahead and click on the source to see their background. Groovy.
Maybe he should record these on a Teac Tascam Series 144 4-track cassette recorder? John Mayer had a secret show last night at Hotel Cafe where he tried out a few new songs. This is "Portable Heart"-lots of harmonica. His recent dip into Dylanesqueness may be explained by a Page Six blurb from back in July:
"We hear..That legendary producer Phil Ramone — honored recently by Billy Joel and Paul Simon at the Songwriters Hall of Fame dinner — will record an album with John Mayer to re-create the classic sound of “Blood on the Tracks,” which Ramone produced for Bob Dylan in the ’70s.” nypost Page Six
Here’s another new one “Something Like Olivia” (what? he needed a 4 syllable name? O.K. it does tickle the tongue) that I like better:
The Teac Tascam reference is to Bruce Springsteen’s recording of Nebraska which is a fabulous story that I think I’ll post next :)
“The Sharp Eyes Of Truth,” by Frank Stefanko
Also known as the picture from the cover of The River.
I saw the shirt at the Rock&Roll Hall of Fame Museum. It has pink in the lighter checks! I don’t know if it is original or maybe Bruce washed some reds with his shirt. Ha. I’ve also noticed this shirt in some of the Darkness photos. It must’ve been a fave. Yeah, I notice too much. Bruce is mad for plaid.
