Just Because / Dude 72

Test Pressing, Dr Rob, Just Because, Art, Photography, Mick Rock, David Bowie, Mott The Hopple, Oasis, Dude 72

A classic picture taken by Mick Rock, Bowie`s official photographer, “the man who shot the seventies”. Part of a series of images that were submitted but overlooked for the cover of Mott The Hopple`s (Bowie-produced) “All The Young Dudes”.

I wonder what happened to the boy, “Dude 72”, a star in the making. As Noel once penned, and Liam once spat “The dreams we have as children fade away”. Hold on to `em.
