Rolling Stone Show

AD: Steve Charny

I've had the great honor of working with Rolling Stone over many years, creating portraits of Kurt Cobain, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Carlos Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and many others, so I was thrilled that SI and Rolling Stone had organized an exhibit of the wonderful work done by so many artists for their Record Review over the years. The piece above, of John Mellencamp, will be in tonight's show, and was created last fall for the release of his album No Better Than This.
 
I've included another piece below, one of my favorites, that was done in 2005 for the release of Paul McCartney's Undressing Underwater which coincided with the Rolling Stones' Rain Fall Down. Given that both Paul and Mick were knighted, it seemed approriate to give a duel(ing) review of their releases, with the Sirs battling it out for the public's attention. Keith is in the background, playing his electric lute, oblivious to it all.
