Shannon Tweed and Gene Simmons are set to arrive in Ottawa and from the Tuesday evening party to the Bluesfest concert it should be lots of fun.
We will be covering most of the events so stay tuned to the blog and you will see a post on Wednesday showing how much fun you can have in the town that fun forgot…Its your backstage pass to the party of the year in Ottawa.
I want to thank all the residents of Ottawa who called and wrote in offering their support for
Shannon Tweed Day and their kind offers of goods and services to show Shannon and Gene that we really do know how to party. The response from the real people of Ottawa has been outstanding.
One bit of media I did want to clear up is the report that I shot Shannon for Playboy. While I do shoot for such publications for Time, Newsweek,Macleans and Businessweek…the feature in Playboy was shot by their staff photographer. The image I sold Playboy…my first big magazine sale about a quarter century ago..was a model test shot done for Lorraine Hammond modelling agency.
To those in Ottawa who tongues are still wagging over the Tweed Day debacle, I should note that Marilyn Monroe and Gina Lollobrigida appeared topless in film and print over 50 years ago.
Someone once wrote that living well is the best revenge…I think laughing well ain`t bad either.
