I am the fucking son of a superman


He's been gone longer than he was here.

Not familiar with this guy, but he looks interesting.

Darby Crash was the lead singer of The Germs, one of the major punk bands from the early days of the scene in LA. He killed himself the night John Lennon was shot, so it didn't even make the papers. Poor boy. Hell of a band. He was gay, too, but no idea if that fueled his suicide. The title is one of his lyrics.

That's about as bad as poor Farrah Fawcett dying on the same day as Michael Jackson.

I'll have to check their music out.

Big love,

They were not a good band, but they were good at what they did.

DTG your last comment resonates for me - That's how I feel about my artwork - I'm not good, but I LOVE it so I think it's good for what it is...

And that's damn important.
