Cassette tape rock star art

In the most creative recycling I’ve seen in a long time, some talented artist on Flickr makes these amazing portraits of rock stars using only cassette tape. (Kids, if you don’t know what cassette tape is, it’s the thin, seamless black ribbon found inside of musical cassettes old folks like me used to buy).

Look at these portraits, they’re amazing:

Bob Dylan:

Go to the Flickr site and see the rest. Bravo!

Mitch Mitchell drumming in heaven now

Mitch Mitchell, one of my favorite rock ‘n’ roll drummers, died a few days ago while I was away from the computer. Mitch was 62 and on tour playing the drums when his body was found in a hotel room in Oregon.

I won’t write a lengthy blog post, but I just want to say goodbye to Mitch and thanks for the crazy hot beats on all those Jimi Hendrix Experience records, particularly “Fire.”

Are all the best drummers in heaven now? Discuss.
