JIMMY RECCA gig: music + art =win-win

Jimmy Recca in front of "Pin Striped Skull" by Brent Myers

Jimmy Recca, bassist for The Stooges during their legendary phase with both James Williamson and Ron Asheton on dueling lead guitars (cd box set of same available here LINK,) played a solo acoustic gig for the opening of an unusual assemblage of fine art talent: an exhibition by members of the Art Directors Guild, IATSE local 800 (that's union art, scenery and design personnel of movies and tv to us civilians.) It was all instrumental sets with his Gibson acoustic, the Stooges' "Gimme Danger" and the Stones' "Angie" emerging as highlights.

Jimmy is seen in front of Brent Myers' "Pin Striped Skull," a painting which already has been seen in a book about Kustom car detailing. Lynda Burbank's painting below, reminiscent of a crowded ensemble style currently popular in high fashion photography, also caught my eye. These works and all others in the exhibition remain for sale at Gallery 800 on 5108 Lankershim, North Hollywood, Calif.
