I can't take credit for this post. My dear friend k-rawk, queen of the Panther Moderns, sent me some awesome photos of The Runaways shot by Brad Elterman. Given we are the modern day Joan Jett and Cherie Currie (we're so over Betty and Veronica) I couldn't help but feel inspired to rock out and post these photos.
I love Elterman's vintage photography. He is an original and spent many late nights documenting Hollywood's party scene and emerging musicians back in the day. Lucky guy. Just check out that bad ass photo of Matt Dillon circa 1980 and Joey Ramon hanging out in a parking lot. I may have been born in the seventies, but man do I wish I lived through the seventies. This weekend it's all about feathered hair, cherry bombs and the occasional scissor kick. Awwwe yeah!
