The man himself didn't exactly impress me, at least the few images of him they had, but I will say the guy had one heck of an impressive career.

I'm not familiar with his work, but the article reads like a script for a pretty good rock n roll movie. I suspect he had a whole lot of fun in his time, which is more than most can claim.

The comment 'when they blinked you could hear it' cracked me up, along with his learning to swim by having to drag a comatose Iggy Pop regularly out of the swimming pool.

Why are they just now running an obit - he died in April, and many places, including The Warhol museum blog ran stories then.

Still, it's a good read, subs.

When Childers told Warhol of his wish to become a photographer, the Pop Artist referred him to Candy Darling, the "Warhol Superstar" and another glamorous cross-dresser: "Andy said, 'Candy says he is a woman. If Candy can be a woman, you can be a photographer. All you have to do is say you are'."

Amen.

Drag Queens are scary. I suspect that is part of the allure of being one.

I think, Warhol's drugged up thinking was 'if you keep telling people something, eventualy some will believe it'

Phew, I thought I was losing my mind again, because I was about to say that I could swear I heard about this back in the spring from a friend. He had posted a photo of himself with Leee in NYC from 1980 or so, and then another one from just a few years ago when he saw him again in New Orleans, I think, after a quite a long time.
