Robin Trower

Photographed by Andy Warhol


Andy Warhol looks a scream: hang him on your wall Golly gosh and gee whiz, if it ain't Andy Warhol, artist and movie producer, who once did a number with a soup can, snapping a picture of Robin Trower at a recent 'bash' hosted by Andy, Terry Ellis, president of Chrysalis Records, and promoter Howard Stein, after Robin's recently successful concert at Madison Square Garden. People who came out to celebrate included members of Aerosmith, Wishbone Ash, Average White Band as well as Chrysalis recording star, Steve Hackett of Genesis, Lou Reed, Rick Derringer, Ben Gazzara and New York's 'Society Set' including Monique Van Vooren. Featured left to right: Ellis, Warhol and Trower [and two women who evidently don't merit a mention (Ed)]

John Overall writes (with characteristic density of wordplay!)
The picture was taken by my ex-wife, Wendy Blume, who had a column in the NJ rock paper Aquarian under the nom de plum Bea Flatte (a sharp cookie) for their April 21 May 5 1976 issue.

So ... did Andy ever publish the snap he's taking of our Robin?

Thanks, John O
