Leee Black Childers IS mentioned, as one of the four great Max's photographers, along with Anton Perich, Danny Fields and Brigid Berlin, and a photo OF Leee appears. However, NONE of Leee's photographs are included in either the book or the show about it at Steven Kasher Gallery. Leee is alive and well, and still an active photographer with many recent and upcoming shows. So why is he missing here? Absurd.
Every one of the Cockettes ( a very famous drag troupe from San Francisco with many documentaries and books about them extant) are identified only as "a Cockette" except for Pristine Condition. As if they didn't all have names! It's like showing a photo of Mick Jagger and John Lennon and captioning it "Mick Jagger and a Beatle".
Dee Dee's Ramone's wife, Vera, who recently published her own memoirs, is "unidentified"!!! Couldn't anyone make phone call? (Actually I learned that someone from Abrams, the publisher, DID make a phone call, to Lenny Kaye, who told them the "blonde in the photo" was Vera, Dee Dee's wife.) Many quite famous people are "unidentified" in this book. Where oh where were the research people on this? Talking to "editor" Steven Kasher? The "unidentified" chimp at Max's was the World's Most Famous trained chimp, J. Fred Muggs! (Do you think Mickey would let just ANY chimp into Max's?)
I also have to say I was appalled when the New York Times article about this book and show gave Steven Kasher credit for having "helped discover previously unknown pictures of Max's from insiders like music producer and writer Danny Fields." (BTW Danny Fields is not a music producer.Read more ›
people who help make max's II a fun place for everyone not just the incrowd.
Lots of great photos in "MKC: Art, Glamour, Rock and Roll"- just the tip of the iceberg one would assume.
More please. Instead of bickering about what is not in this book, why not focus on another book with more?
I'll buy this one, that one and the other one.
