How foxy are you??

I am thoroughly enjoyed Star magazine this morning.

The first issue of Star hit the stands in February 1973. With its over-the-top advice and irreverent coverage of LA’s teenage groupie scene, it wasn’t long before Petersen Publishing was feeling the heat from “concerned citizens”. Five issues and five months later, publication ceased. A sixth issue was planned but never printed. Such controversy along with coverage of “new breed” Sunset Strip groupies (Shray Mecham, Sable Starr, Lori Lightning, Queenie Glam) and glam venues like Rodney Bingenheimer’s English Disco cemented the mag’s later cult status among fans and collectors.

Some nice man has scanned them all in, and you can flip through them. It’s fun.

Learn how to get the rich hippie look in Rags Bag and read their reviews of the latest movies, books and albums (from 1973…). I like hearing opinions on Ziggy Stardust before it became ZIGGY STARDUST! And both comic book Mick Jagger and Rod Stewart look just like a-one Mr. Vince Moon – don’t miss the next page, a Mick Jagger coloring poster!

Star 1973 words to live by:

DON’T let anyone tell you how you should wear your hair or make-up.

DON’T give up your guitar lessons because your boyfriend resents the time it takes up or is jealous of your instructor.

DON’T be afraid to give your opinion if you believe it’s right.

DO remember that only you are responsible for your life and what good comes out of it.
