Lester Bangs "Gonzo Journalist" Rock Music Mens and Womens T-Shirt


We love 70's rock around here (Stillwater rules! There should be a t-shirt)... but through that love we've discovered some great side characters that weren't rock stars, but true stars.

There's a handful of 70's Rock music writers, Gonzo journalists, that were culled through the desire of certain magazines to bring the debauchery and back story of rock and roll music to the people. I mean, who's seriously not interested in hearing the sex, drugs and rock'n'roll stories of the rich and famous?!? America loves to watch 'em fall.

Enter Lester Bangs, true anti-hero. You may recognize his name from the Cameron Crowe movie Almost Famous (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman), or you may have read one of his articles in Creem magazine, Rolling Stone, Villiage Voice, even Playboy and Penthouse. He was a well worn author.

What makes Lester Bangs a star though, was his perception of rock celebrity... he never put anyone on a pedestal. He interviewed world class musicians like they were human beings, he would even be difficult with them, sometimes talking about himself more than interviewing the pompous celebrity. He broke them down to reality, and got some very interesting stories (and reactions) in the process.

Lester Bangs is an extraordinary journalist because he'd throw rocks at glass houses... in today's media world of Payola and extreme bias, a writer like Lester Bangs would be considered a revolutionary soldier.

This T shirt is supposed to be about a rock journalist, but it ends up being more of a political statement. So when someone asks "who's Lester Bangs?"... you've got plenty to tell them about this rad article of clothing!
