The July 15th, 1976 issue of Rolling Stone featured a lengthy piece on the new show “Saturday Night”.
I particularly enjoy old photos of Lorne Michaels.
He was a babe. I also love how the show is repeatedly referred to as “SN” for Saturday Night, which beautifully, is also my initials. Coincidence? I think not.
There were also great portraits of most of the cast members. I’d never seen this shot of Gilda before.
In other 1976 issues…
A goofy McCartney from the June 17th issue.
A striking Hall and Oates full page ad from May 20th.
Lou in the April 8th issue. Gotta love that yellow script typography.
Dylan, March 11th. I could stare at this face for hours.
I just like this Bose ad. It’s a pretty sassy lil’ ad.
A February 12th, 1976 Patti Smith album review. All hail. Better than this? A full spread in the January 1st issue!
February 12th. Bowie made all of the other covers between January and July look silly.
Dylan and Ali in the January 15th issue.
“Bob’s attitude is very similar to the Buddhist view of nonattachment.”
And this gem from the January 1st issue. This is one for a caption contest.
And last, but most certainly not least, a letter from “Lennono” in the January 1st issue.
