    In Barnes and Noble today I saw a book with the title "Bass Cultures". I think that was the name. It was a book about John Entwistles collection of basses. Has any one seen this book.
    I also saw a book that was pictures of porn stars. Really nice. I don't rember the name of it though. One page had the actress dresses nicely and on the page facing that one was a picture of her in the same pose with out a stich. I'd give it a ten but I had to be exposed to actors too :mad: .
  2. Bass Culture is a fantastic book. Beautiful basses (and guitars) well photographed. Entwistle has a great sense of humour. I love the suits of armour in the background of some of the shots.

    I haven't seen the other book but it sounds interesting.

    The other book is by a famous photographer named Timothy Greenfield-Saunders. I can't remember the exact name of the book. It has pictures of the men and women in clothes and then in a similair pose nude.

    The guy is a family friend because his mother went to college with my grandmother. He is actually a really nice guy (not a pervert). He directed a movie called "Lou Reed: Take a walk on the wildside "as well which is really good,

    John was an avid collector of many things, in addition to guitars and basses. He had numerous complete suits of armour. He also had a complete set of Marilyn Monroe collectors plates!

    I just got this "Bass Culture" from my father for my birthday. It really is a fantastic book. Not only is the age and scope of his collection incredible, the incredible condition his instruments -many of which are 50's and 60's is often nearly immaculate.
    I guess his basses were either in perfect condition or smashed to bits in a fit of the "rage of entwistle"

    Also notable: for such a bass player the book shows that he also has an incredible guitar collection.(pre cbs fenders and early gibsons especially)

    It was not at any barnes and nobles around me, but Borders had it in stock at two diferent locations.
