1979, October - The famous shot of Bebe & Stiv by Brad Elterman, at a party for Blondie at Firoucci in Beverly Hills to celebrate their new record, "Eat to the Beat". He remembers: "I clipped this rare photo of my friends Bebe Buell and Stiv Bators from early proof sheet." From http://bradelterman.tumblr.com
Brad remembers in his website (bradelterman.com): "This photo was taken at an incredible party at Fiorucci's store in Beverly Hills. I think KISS, tons of stars and beautiful girls were present. Fiorucci's was known for its outrageous fashions and fun parties, as well as the punks who worked there. Bebe had been living with Todd Rundgren and was at many happening parties. Think of Elvis Costello's "This Year's Model," written when he was dating her. Stiv Bators was the lead singer of the Dead Boys. Interesting how celebrities attract. FYI Bebe is the mother of Liv Tyler. Stiv was hit by a car in Paris, refused to go to the hospital, and died in his sleep."
