O That Rock & Roll!

Materials: Cast bronze
Dimensions: 13 x 18 x 18 cm

I didn’t like the first 45 single I purchased with my paper route earnings, bought because it was on top of the charts. In junior high school I forced myself to make a choice between playing music and practicing art. I chose art because I didn’t have to practice. At some point I did start buying music that I actually enjoyed. One small vicarious ‘claim to fame’ is that Jimi Hendrix and I attended the same Seattle high school, although he was years ahead of me.
