I, just a few days ago, bought a bunch of clippings on eBay. Some things within I already had copies of (the whole NME December 4th, 1982 edition with Jim on the cover, taken by Anton Corbijn, for example). There are actually a number of good things…gig reviews, album and single reviews…some Belgian magazine articles, etc…but I primarily bought them for THIS!
If you have visited this blog regularly, you’ll know how much I have coveted this picture, and wanted it in colour. The only other colour copy I had seen of this was barely 2 x 3 inches in size. This one is approximately 8 x 10 inches. Oh…that make up! Look at him! Beautiful beastie he is! I mean…yeah, he’s alright. Lol
Ahem. Decorum, decorum.
Anyway, I am “made up” to have myself a colour copy of it.
It’s only just a snap of it on my iPad for now. I will take a proper scan later and upload…and will share some of the other clippings too. (Not many other pics, really…mostly just text.)
UPDATE: Proper scan now here…
Sadly no idea on photographer because it isn’t mentioned on the clipping. Wish I knew.
