“It was 40 years ago today,
Sgt Pepper taught…” oops! — wrong decade, wrong band.
40 years ago, in the summer of 1973, my friend Bob Easton, along with his wife Jeanine and baby daughter, moved to Bolinas, and we spent three months putting together the book Shelter. I did the writing on an Adler portable typewriter in the tower loft (up a ladder) and Bob did the layout in the attached shake-covered geodesic dome. Our typist was Joe Bacon, from New Orleans, “fastest typist in the west.”
In photo, l.-r,: me, Joe, Bob with baby Chandra, Jeanine at lunch in my dome one day during production of Shelter in 1973. For the rest of the above, see my latest GIMME SHELTER newsletter at: https://www.shelterpub.com/_gimme/_2013-05-07/gimme_shelter-2013-05-07.html
