'Hugh Hefner's Playboy' Features Vintage Snapshots Of The Magazine's Early History
Popeater - over 3 years
Hugh Hefner has always been more than willing to give the world a glimpse into his very personal -- and very polyamorous -- lifestyle. So it's no surprise that the velvet-adoring gentleman has opted to create an expansive, illustrated autobiography featuring not one, but six volumes of vintage photos and artwork that tell the story of Playboy's first 25 years. Barbi Benton and Hefner, Miami 1970 "Hugh Hefner's Playboy" was recently released by Taschen, highlighting the golden years of his magazine empire. (You know, if you are of such a mind to think they ever existed at all.) The book celebrates Playboy's 60th anniversary by pulling together childhood artworks, decades-old letters, and autobiographical excerpts about Hefner's time as a cartoonist, military man and youth about town.

Bands with names like Abhorrence, Abruption, disEMBOWELMENT, Gorefest and Gorguts made me feel like I was taking my own life in my hands when I went to their sets at The Whisky A Go Go or Gazzarri's on Sunset Boulevard. But I had no choice. Roman Coppola had just hired me to star in the second movie of a three-picture deal he had with his father's Zoetrope Studios. I played the manager of a real-life hair band called Brunette and this formerly Mormon, sheltered USC graduate needed to do her research. I was paranoid about working on a set I imagined rife with drugs and sexually transmitted diseases you could catch simply by shaking hands with a head banger. But I arrived to a familial, laid-back set where Roman set a placid tone. His cousin, Nic Cage, would stop by and make all t ...
