Musea Art Contest 5/30/11

May 30, 2011

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

The new Musea Issue features 6 concert pix of me playing and singing in my Inwood Box Office Concerts. They showcase the photo talents of David McGhee. AND speaking of photographers of musicians (here comes the question finally)  Which rock photographer is the only one that had his photos used as album covers for all three of these: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and  The Who. Name that photographer. For extra stars give the albums.


Ethan Russell who did these covers,  Beatles:  Let it Be, Rolling Stones: Get Yer Ya-Yas Out!, The Who: Who’s Next and Quadrophenia.

We had no winners, seems y’all’s answers didn’t ‘develop’ on this one.

I don’t dumb down, so please wise up! Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of my NEW cd CALLED ‘30′! – (first anti-band CD) or my NEWER cd CALLED ‘NEXT”(‘06) or my NEWEST cd CALLED ‘THIRDS” (May ‘07) or my MORE NEWEST cd Called “FOUR-TH” ‘08 or my Just RELEASED MOST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘5-TH’(Nov.’09)( one of the 5 CD set). (has them all plus videos and more) if you are the first to E-MAIL ME AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ blanks of course) with the correct answer to this art question.

FINE PRINT: The CD prize is only available to those with mailing addresses in the US. Foreign winners will have to settle for the miniscule fame alone, and the satisfaction of a job well done. But don’t forget you can listen to all the music on the website, whether you won or lost – and I’d be glad if you did!

This farmhouse near Hartfield, was, over decades, the home of two British greats – the earlier resident was a noted Children books author. The later resident was a rock pioneer. Though they seem to have nothing else in common, they both lived at the same home. Name the farm house.

You know its:

A bad book … if it has a subtitle

a bad film … if it has a symphony orchestra on the soundtrack

a bad recording … if it has guest artists

bad art … if it has to be explained by the artist.
