TOM WAITS BY GEORGE DUBOSE

"My second opportunity to photograph Mr. Waits came when I was the photo editor of Spin magazine. This time it was summer and Tom wanted to go to Chinatown. At the end of this shoot, we walked past the San Genero street festival. Tom grabbed a folding chair and put it in the street to take a little rest after the big lunch. Note the famous alligator shoes featured in the 1986 Jim Jarmusch film 'Down By Law.'"

George DuBose shot the photo that would later become the cover for the B-52’s 1979 self-titled debut album. He captured Madonna during her first gig, created the cover art for the last nine Ramones albums and would go on to work with Tom Waits, REM, The Go-Go’s, Melissa Etheridge and Kid Creole and the Coconuts.

He captured icons in their infancy. DuBose was there, on the front lines, photographing artists who would influence decades of sound and style. His photographs evidence not only the beginning’s of such quintessential bands, but also the photographer who was there, unknowingly making legends of them both.

Now, House of Roulx is contributing in our own way by sharing DuBose’s works with both existing fans and an entirely new generation, so that they will also come to know the man who captured and help break the people who made music what it is today.
