Joe Cocker on the Cocker Power plane

Joe taking my photo on the Cocker Power plane! Joe Cocker Mad Dogs & Englishmen

Hello fans and folks, I’m almost done scanning and photoshopping the 1970s. Besides being obsessed with crafting really good images out of sometimes grainy, blurry ones I’m finding many that bring back memories long forgotten.

This process has not only brought me in touch with my young self, but has me blown away by how quickly time flies and how impossible it is to really absorb how many of us on the tour have died. To see Joe and Leon alive and vital and so beautiful and know that they are gone from this life is hard to accept. I’ve become more philosophical in this process, because they are so alive in these photos. As are Carl, Bobby Keys, Francine, Kay, Miss Emily, Donna, Kellogs, our roadie, and the filmmakers, Pierre and Dave.

So proud to be standing on stage honoring Joe and being honored ourselves. I wanted to be part of the music so deeply, when I was young. This was an extraordinary moment for me as a photographer, to also be able to sing in the choir.

Soon, I will jump to 2015, to the reunion/tribute concert with TTB and friends, and be back in this century. I wonder what I’ll begin to recognize about myself from this perspective. Being in 1970 has given me so many revelations about myself and the life I led between these years.

The patience it takes to do a book, to follow day upon day this path over months, years, only happens for me when the work I’m doing is a true labor of love. Thank you to everyone who have been and continue to be part of this process, who has sent me love and money for advance copies or commented when I’ve posted on FB. It is also part of the labor of love that makes something shine and be.  Love, linda
