All these pleased folks were at BookMarc in West Hollywood (the literary annex of Marc Jacobs) the last week in November to meet and greet famed rock and roll photographer Bob Gruen, there to sign his newest offering "Rock Seen." Above, Bob Gruen, Evita Corby and Leanna Asheton.

Above, Frank Infante of Blondie poses with rock couturier Evita, she of the Stooges' Hollywood '70s-era inner circle. This subliminally echoes Gruen's poster to their left of Iggy Pop and Debbie Harry.

More Stoogin' around with Evita and Leanna, daughter of Stooges' drummer Scott Asheton and purveyor of his cool "Rock Action!" merchandise. I purchase some great T-shirts of same from her that evening.

Popular and eclectic DJ, guitarist, stalwart Iggy Pop-protector/wrangler, guitar tech for the mighty James Williamson, both of Iggy and The Stooges, and now synth-celeste musician for that band during their "Raw Power"-era selection "Penetration," the multifariously talented (and blissfully happy newlywed to Ms. Angeline King of their The Bang! band) Derek See departs from tour duties to pose with new mutual friend Evita on this night just before the show in town (blog to come...)

Emblematic of an ultra-successful book signing event, BookMarc sold out all copies of Gruen's new book (cover above) before we even arrived, so my purchase was the one below, the tome itself bound in shiniest hot pink satin!
