Better Days


Jeffrey Lee Pierce, 1980, originally uploaded by Theresa K.

Here's Jeffrey Lee Pierce backstage at the Whisky A Go Go around 1979 or 80. We were all at the B Girls show.

This picture represents better days for Jeffrey - he's so young here - 21 or 22, and looks kinda happy to be there.

Jeffrey Lee Pierce was a complex man who kick started a lot of positive things in music. He was not afraid to go to the dark side, either. And often that leads to an early death.

Someone in LA is making a movie about Jeffrey.... that's a story that needs to be told. There's so much to say, and this blog isn't the right place.

But I hope you enjoy this picture of Jeffrey from better days. I am now off to Chicago for the Blackout, and will return with more photos!

So see you there, or see you at the Saints gig at the Ding Dong Lounge in NYC on Saturday.

No new posts til Monday... delve into the archives!
