ARTIST TALK: HENRY ROLLINS x PHARRELL WILLIAMS

April 3, 2013  |  Culture  |  Comments Off

Needless to say, young Pharrell is more than a little outgunned in this artist discussion with legendary Black Flag frontman and punk icon Henry Rollins, but it's fun to watch the two dig in. Luckily, the topic of conversation never turns to wanton hedonism, conspicuous consumption, or overt consumerism, but hey, why would it?...

Yes, you just read that. The only thing that could have made this interview better would have been for Baldwin to grill Yorke for the first half as Jack Donaghy before tearing him to shreds as Blake from Glengarry for the second bit while the sensitive, self-affected Yorke rocked on the floor in a fetal position. The real interview was almost as good, have a listen:

Easily the most influential chameleon in rock history, David Bowie's storied career has seen him inhabit more personas than an accomplished schizophrenic, and at age 66, release a new album last month that debuted at #1 on iTunes and on UK record charts. The foremost arbiter of rock style and fashion at every generational and cultural pivot point, Bowie's avant-garde futurism and absolute abhorrence of stasis has seen him generate a massive archive of personal artifacts, that, despite years of massive chemical intake and general debauchery, he had the presence of mind to preserve in an institutional grade archive (complete with its own full-time dedicated archivist) for posterity. It is from this incredible collection that London's Victoria & Albert Museum assembled its current blockbuster visual retrospective of Bowie's life & times, titled, appropriately enough, "David Bowie Is..."

ESSENTIAL READING: AN INTERVIEW WITH LARRY GAGOSIAN

Love him or hate him, Larry Gagosian is easily the single most important force in the modern art world and a fascinating character to the core. His near unshakable media silence almost guarantees he'll be taking his storied trove of epic tales (including many with his now legendary friend Jean-Michel Basquiat) to the grave unheard. Luckily he sat down with fellow art world heavy Peter Brant late last year for a great Interview Magazine talk that—if you weren't paying attention—was easily missed, but shouldn't be overlooked: Read More

Given our longstanding relationship with former champion athlete Lance Armstrong, we at Supertouch were saddened to watch his confession to having used performance-enhancing drugs throughout his career. Having known him on a close personal level for several years now, though, we're sticking by a person who may no longer be a champion, but remains a kind and generous friend & family man nonetheless. His days in the record books may be behind him, but we're pulling for him to make the second act of his career equally great. (Featured: Fresh Lance graffiti on the streets of LA)
