The story of rock photography
Jimi Hendrix in Monterey on his knees in front of his burning guitar, conjuring up the flames; Janis Joplin laughing on a couch, his left arm up his hip, in his right hand a bottle of Southern Comfort; Johnny Cash with a rage-distorted face, his right middle finger drawn like a weapon; Jim Morrison with his bare upper body as the embodiment of the voluptuous shepherd god Pan as well as the hedonistic worry-breaker Dionysos; David Bowie with his face at the level of Mick Ronson's pelvis...
JOHN GARCIA - The free swimmer
Curved Air's new studio album "North Star" is based on their powerful-progressive times in the early seventies. And this although of the original line-up only singer Sonja Kristina and drummer Florian Pilkington-Miksa are still present. Wonder violinist Darryl Way, who played a decisive role in shaping the Curved Air sound, has not been in the service of the British group since 2009; Paul Sax, however, is in no way inferior to him in terms of virtuosity. Guitarist Kirby Gregory was already in the seventies for a short time in the game, he is still an expert on his instrument.
Curved Air are among the longest serving British prog bands, but they never made it into the first league. Although their LPs "Air Conditioning", "Second Album" and "Phantasmagoria" landed in the top 20 of the British charts, and with the single "Back Street Luv" they even managed a single hit in 1971. But after that the band couldn't continue this success anymore. She disbanded in 1976. In 1990 there was a unique reunion concert in London. In 2008, Curved Air were brought together in a new line-up.
