Taylor Mead and G.

It’s not every day that one gets to be in the presence of one of Andy Warhol’s superstars.  In this case, the superstar was Taylor Mead. The 80+ Mead still performs weekly at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York.  Andy Warhol directed “Taylor Mead’s Ass” in 1964 at The Factory in response to a bad review of Mead’s performance in the Warhol directed “Tarzan and Jane Regained… Sort of” in which they stated, “nobody wants to see an hour and a half of Taylor Mead’s ass.”  The film, as you might have guessed, consists solely of shots of Taylor Mead’s buttocks.  But (bad choice of words), he was anything but an ass (another bad choice of words) when he posed for this picture with me.  Thanks Taylor. Keep on rockin’!
