This weekend (Sunday, 22) is Stiv Bator's birthday. He would have been 57 had he lived...Greg Shaw was born the same year... he died two years ago....Stiv died in 1990
They really gave me my start in the punk rock biz... Stiv and Greg. Greg Shaw paid me, and many people find that unusual... he commissioned me to shoot many things for bomp, ranging from record covers to their xmas card photo and even referred the then-upstart Bug Music to hire me to do their xmas card photos as well. Stiv was like a big brother and a child to me at the same time... we went on the road together, were roommates in London and in odd situations around the world
I miss these guys something awful.
