But we were doing exactly what we wanted to be doing! We were in love with the music—these guys were the answer to our prayers. They wanted us there, and they treated us like goddesses." — Michele Overman

"When you’re a kid sitting in your room playing guitar, you don’t have to worry about being successful…"

 


One of Bob Dylan’s muse, Suze Rotolo. She inspired his song “Boots of spanish leather“. 
Describing their meeting in his memoir, Chronicles, Volume One, Dylan wrote: “Right from the start I couldn’t take my eyes off her. She was the most erotic thing I’d ever seen. She was fair skinned and golden haired, full-blood Italian. The air was suddenly filled with banana leaves. We started talking and my head started to spin. Cupid’s arrow had whistled past my ears before, but this time it hit me in the heart and the weight of it dragged me overboard… Meeting her was like stepping into the tales of 1001 Arabian Nights. She had a smile that could light up a street full of people and was extremely lively, had a kind of voluptuousness – a Rodin sculpture come to life”

The Ramones
NYC subway, 1975.
Gruen was doing a “day in the life” feature for Rock Scene magazine, following the punk rockers from their home in Forest Hills to a gig at CBGBs. Their ripped jeans “were not a common look at the time,” Gruen says, and they got looked down on everywhere they traveled. Last fall, Gruen says, a woman came up to him at an exhibit and said that the couple across from the band were his grandparents. “They were the kind of people who dressed up to go to the grocery store,” Gruen says. “I love the contrast of the old-school style.”

Joan Jett
Los Angeles, 1976.
Then in the Runaways, Jett “came over to my hotel room (at the Sunset Marquis) for the shoot. It was exciting to have Joan Jett on your bed.” Gruen was impressed that she was wearing a Sex Pistols T-shirt that she had made herself, at a time when the band had yet to record an album, and even the photographer barely knew who they were. “It was very hip of her.”
