Looking to See Some Real Art? How About the Tennis Hall of Fame
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Artist Andy Warhol, claimed one of his patrons, banker Richard Weisman, "didn't know the difference between a football and a golf ball." Warhol himself frustrated Jack Nicklaus during a photo session by continually calling his golf club a "stick," and in his diary wrote of Tom Seaver that the pitcher "was adorable. Athletes really do have fat in the right places, and they're young in the right places." Still, Weisman, who appreciated both athletics and art, commissioned the artist in 1977 to create an edition of silkscreen portraits of 10 top sports stars of the time. One of those iconic images is that of tennis champion Chris Evert. You won't find that artwork at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts or at the ICA, but it is on display in the Billie Jean King Gallery at the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum in Newport, Rhode Island. Sports halls of fame are not big collectors and displayers of art, which makes this one in Newport so different. The Baseball Hall of Fame in Coopers ...

Super Bowl Fantasy Halftimes 1967-1990
Fan 590 - about 5 years
Look, we all have opinions on the Super Bowl halftime show.  Who should play it, who shouldn’t, who’s hot, who’s not. It’s also a total no-win situation for an artist also (ooh, umm, except for the usual seven-figure paycheck for ripping off 3-4 songs and then being back at a hotel suite before the halfway mark of the third quarter of the game).  It’s big business, big sponsors, and massive artists. Following the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction in 2004, big-time heavy-hitters were brought in to provide relatively safe yet huge shows for mass appeal, unless you’re 25 or under and the Rolling Stones are as much your grandfather’s band as your father’s.  Also, men who aren’t confident in their sexuality won’t admit to the fact that they like at least 5-6 Prince songs, and NO women really adore The Who.  It’s a scientific fact — The Who and Rush — very few female fans. Madonna gets the task this year and though she would have been considered a more “dangerous” artist if she’d played ...

  • TWENTIES
  • 1983
    Age 29
    Tico and his first wife divorced soon after the formation of Bon Jovi in 1983. In 1996, Torres married Czech-born model Eva Herzigová in Sea Bright, New Jersey.
    More Details Hide Details The ceremony was attended by their closest friends and family including Donald Trump and the members of Bon Jovi. The band serenaded Eva and her husband with the hit single "Always" during the dance. Their marriage ended two years later.
    Before joining Bon Jovi in 1983 he had already played live with Joe Cerisano's R-Band aka Silver Condor in the New Jersey Rock circuit, and in the studio with Franke and the Knockouts, Pat Benatar, Chuck Berry, Cher, Alice Cooper and Stevie Nicks, recording a total of 26 albums with these artists.
    More Details Hide Details Tico was also one of the drummers auditioned by Kiss in 1980 after original drummer Peter Criss left the band. Torres was the original drummer for the glam rock band T. Roth and Another Pretty Face and played on their debut album Face Facts. Tico met Alec John Such while playing with a band called Phantom's Opera and it was this friendship which led to him joining Bon Jovi. When Jon Bon Jovi, the lead singer of the band, approached Torres, he was put off by the fact that Jon was 9 years younger than he was. Regardless of this he said it was Jon's charismatic appearance and watching Jon perform that attracted him to join the band. Known as "The Hitman," Tico discovered another talent: painting. He has exhibited his art since 1994. The successful first show was at the Ambassador Galleries in Soho, New York. Tico is a self-taught painter, who paints expressive pictures which show scenes from everyday life and the life with the band.
