Watch the premiere of "Divine Tides" in a few minutes on YouTube...

...8:30 Pacific Time, by my Grammy friend Ricky Kej and Stewart Copeland...yes, that Stewart Copeland, drummer of The Police.



Remember the "Ed Hardy" trendy fashion craze from around 14 years ago?

Back in 2007 I was loaned original art by (Don) Ed Hardy, the legendary tattoo artist, in order to scan the art to produce limited edition digital (giclée) prints on paper.

Last night I opened a flat file drawer that I hadn't been in since around that time, and I found a forgotten trove of art prints by DEH, my friend the painter "Germs" and some other artists.

The Hardy editions were limited to 100 signed/numbered prints, with some printer's proofs and "BATs" (Bon A Tirer, which means good to print). Here are five Don Ed Hardy prints that I made back then:











I'll probably post the Germs stuff later, in case anyone's interested.

And, for the record, I don't have any tattoos.

NOTE: Edited again to remove the unintended annoying smilie faces that show up when a right parentheses is used.

My best friend & bandmate in several bands starting in 1978...

...has just passed away.

His name was Brad Frost, and he was a DU member called "benchley."

He didn't post much here - if ever - but he was a staunch Democrat/Progressive/Trump Resister.

He was a great visual artist/animator/cartoonist/song writer/guitar player and he was my best friend for over 40 years.

Here are some links to stuff we did together:



Brad did all of the animation on DP for Pot.



On 72 Virgins he sang lead vocal and played e-bow guitar.



Brad wrote the song, sang and played guitar on Jenna.

All of the above are from the 2008 Benedict Arnold & The Traitors' "Star Spangled Bummer" CD.

Brad did the cover art below for my band Green Sparkle Frog's 2012 CD "Die Happy & Other Songs About Life"



Die Happy, my friend.
