Photo Challenge from Marsha

Marsha over at Sassy Mini Dolls sent me this challenge..and .a nice easy one it is too :-) I have to go to my photo files and pick file number 4 and then photo number 4, publish it here and explain a bit about it.

Well my photos are in files all over the show so I went to my sculpting folder which is what I am using at the moment and this is the 4th pic in the 4th file...

This is Ian Gillan. Ian who ? I hear you cry. He was the singer with Deep Purple...I am sure most of you know of them :-)

And yes, if he appears to be looking right into my camera it is because he was lol. This was at some small dive of a bar in Minneapolis a couple of years back. I could tell you I had his attention because I was the hottest chick in the room....but it was because I was the only chick wearing a very low cut Union Jack vest top and sitting right at his feet lol. Luckily Mick just humors me :-)

As you can see, nowadays, he is every bit the aging rock star. This is what he looked like in his younger days....

A tad more rugged than the pretty boy rock stars, Gillan was the first 'love' of my life :-)

Mick looked remarkably like this last photo when he was younger...hair and all. Which I guess was the reason I was so attracted to him way back in the beginning.

Anyhow, I have these photos in my rock star reference photo folder and am referring to them often for my sculpt.

Yes I am still bashing away at the clay. I hope to have new pictures for you tomorrow. Still don't' have my rock star but they are looking more human at least :-)


  1. Your man looks a little sweaty for me! Love the shirt and jeans and bare feet! Isn't it interesting how the old guys age? I sure haven't aged like that! :)

  2. He has been jumping about the stage for about 3 hours :-)

    I haven't aged like that either Kathi :-(

  3. Ah, yes, I remember Deep Purple . . . ah, days gone by . . . . . Hugs, Marsha

  4. Actually, the younger version looks rather like an Indian film star from the 70s. Why do rock stars all look the same? Even here. After all these years, the lead singers still adopt this hairdo. Are you a groupie, Jayne ;)?

  5. Great pic jayne , it is so sad seeing our heart throbs getting old . he was pretty hot though when he was in his heyday !
    Need to sort out my photo as I also recieved the challenge but mine are all on the old laptop in my workshop..........just bet my fourth file is something really boring like "size charts" LOL
    Think I need a rockstars file too :0)

  7. Days gone by indeed....I am still there...right up front, often on my knees lol.

    Am I a groupie Sans ? Mainly in my dreams but I do try :-)

    Who is the Indian film star you mean...I'd like to look at piccies :-)

    Size chart...LOL Julie. Yes get a heart throb folder...certainly makes the day go faster looking at all the pics :-)

    Oh I have many rock star.....I've followed a lot of them around for years :-)

    Remember the old Odeon in Brum Debie ? When it was a music venue....I was there all the while :-)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment :-)
