It's a privilege when you have the opportunity to design a project that is close to your heart. Stephen Moore hired me to design the book cover for his and owner Gary Oelze's upcoming release on The Birchmere. A place where I saw and became friends with Eric Lowan & Dan Navarro, saw and visited with Waylon Jennings for the last time and enjoyed many more fantastic acts. It's one of the best musical venues in the World. I did a few designs but a caveat was expressed after the first round to make the old neon Birchmere sign part of the cover. This is the final approved piece - I also posted the original photo of the sign and the marquee to show how I changed the letters to the book title. I cannot wait to read this volume and see all the wonderful photos from this historic "joint".
