Thirty-five years ago today I arrived in Armero, Colombia, to cover the aftermath of the mudslides caused by the eruption of the Nevada del Ruiz volcano that buried alive more than 20,000 people. One of the victims was thirteen-year-old Omayra Sánchez, who was trapped by the body of her grandmother and a collapsed wall. I put down my cameras to help pull on a rope to save her, but it was to no avail. One of my colleagues took a photo at that moment that won a Pulitzer prize. When I went back the next day, Omayra had died of exposure. This was the second-worst volcanic disaster in the 20th century. RIP, Omayra.

November 13th, 1982, Yoko Ono invited me to photograph her with her son Sean Lennon in their Dakota apartment. It was two years after John Lennon's tragic death - Sean was seven years old in this photo. Just this week it was announced that Yoko, 87 and ailing, was passing control of all the family businesses to Sean. Photograph ©1982 Allan Tannenbaum / Polarisimages.com all rights reserved.

It's nearly 40 years since I took a stroll with John Lennon and Yoko Ono in Central Park. November 21st, 1980 to be exact. John and Yoko had just released their "Double Fantasy" album, and I was photographing them for the Soho Weekly News. This photo of them having a smoke was overlooked on my contact sheet until just now. Photograph ©1980-2020 Allan Tannenbaum / sohobluesgallery.com all rights reserved.

Robert Mapplethorpe, the gifted photographer better known for being the boyfriend of punk poet Patti Smith, would have been 74 on November 4th, 2020. This is my 1975 photograph of Robert attending the Man Ray Bal Blanc at the New York Cultural Center. Rest in Peace, Robert.

If you haven't yet seen the "Studio 54 - Night Magic" exhibition, run over to the Brooklyn Museum before November 8th to catch it. For former denizens of the disco, it will bring back lots of memories, and for those who were too young, it will show you what the excitement was all about. I've got lots of photographs in the exhibition, including this mural of a bare-chested bartender. There's also a photo of me by Bill Cunningham and some of my memorabilia. Kudos to curator Matthew Yokobosky for creating another fantastic spectacle at the museum. Photographs ©1977 - 2020 Allan Tannenbaum / sohobluesgallery.com all rights reserved.

October 1968 - 52 years ago - was the first time I brought my camera to a rock concert. Jimi Hendrix at Winterland in San Francisco was a mind-blowing experience, and one of the photos actually helped me get my first break working for the Soho News. I got to hang out backstage after this gig and saw him two more times in S.F. The last time he had Buddy Miles on drums. Buddy was wearing an American flag shirt and I was tripping on acid. Those were the days! Photograph ©1968-1970 Allan Tannenbaum

I'm constantly going through my contact sheets and discovering overlooked images that should be seen. I just digitized five more Patti Smith photos and I love this one of her kneeling onstage while playing her Fender Duo-Sonic taken at The Bottom Line in 1976.

"I became Iggy because I had a sadistic boss at a record store. I'd been in a band called the Iguanas. And when this boss wanted to embarrass and demean me, he'd say, 'Iggy, get me a coffee, light.’ "
Iggy Pop, 1979 by Allan Tannenbaum

Artist Luciano Garbati made this sculpture of Medusa holding Perseus’ severed head — an inversion of the centuries-old myth where Perseus slew Medusa - in 2008. It has just been installed in Collect Pond Park opposite the New York City Criminal Court building, and has quickly become a  must-see for tourists and New Yorkers alike.

Forever changing the tune of late-night cable television, 'Saturday Night' (a title later changed to 'Saturday Night Live') made its NBC debut on October 11th, 1975 with inaugural guests Janis Ian and Billy Preston. From its onset, music has always played a pivotal role in the program with many significant moments in music history playing out on the 30 Rock soundstage over the last four decades and counting.

Upon SNL's 45th anniversary, we’re taking it back to one of our favorite moments captured backstage by MHG photographer Allan Tannenbaum (@soho_blues) on the eve of Patti Smith’s (@thisispattismith) breakout appearance on the show. With Gerald Ford's press secretary, Ron Nessen, as the evening's host, this particularly memorable episode not only saw a side-splitting #PattiSmith impression from Gilda Radner and John Belushi's Dead String Quartet but also the breakthrough of a then-burgeoning downtown punk scene that night by way of Smith's stirring performance of "Gloria" and "My Generation".

With select works on view at both Los Angeles and New York City gallery locations by appointment only, this online exhibition takes a timely look at the enduring ideals and eras championed by the late-great to better reimagine what it means to be a dreamer in the digital age.

Tomorrow sees the all-access unveiling of Morrison Hotel Gallery's next online exhibition, 𝐁𝐀𝐂𝐊𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐆𝐄 𝐏𝐀𝐒𝐒. From the "backstage queens" of @whitesnake to @therollingstones’ “ballrooms and smelly bordellos, and dressing rooms filled with parasites", set the mood at the link in bio with a new @spotify playlist which captures the enduring essence of green room culture, tour grind confessionals and great hits brought to life on stages around the globe by some of the exhibition's most noteworthy subjects.

Last ride of the summer with my 1968 Norton Commando 750 to Palmer Hill in the beautiful Catskill Mountains of New York State. Behind us is the wilderness with some of the highest peaks in the range. The roads up here are fantastic for riding and experiencing inspiring scenery.

I'm shocked and saddened to hear of the death today of reggae star Toots Hibbert at the age of 77 in Jamaica. With his band The Maytals Toots pioneered the reggae sound and had many wonderful hits, including "Pressure Drop" and "Funky Kingston". Besides having a powerful and passionate voice, Toots had a beautiful soul and keen intellect. I was very fortunate to have met him and hung out. This is my 1975 photo of Toots smoking a spliff backstage. We will miss you, man! Photograph ©1975-2020 Allan Tannenbaum / sohobluesgallery.com all rights reserved.

Nineteen years ago today Islamist terrorists attacked the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. One of the many heroes who responded was FDNY Firefighter Timothy Duffy, who rode is Harley-Davidson from his home to Ground Zero. This is my photo of Tim arriving downtown after the first WTC tower collapsed. Never forget heroes like Tim, never forget the nearly 3,000 people who died in the attacks, never forget the thousands more who are sick and dying from ground zero toxic exposures. Photograph ©2001 Allan Tannenbaum / Polarisimages.com all rights reserved. My photos of Tim are featured in this month's HOG magazine with the story about him.

Flashback Friday - all the way to 2019 when I photographed my good friend, the legendary singer/songwriter/guitarist David Broza and his band in Tribeca. David's using one of my photos from that session to promote his live-streaming concert this Sunday, September 6th, 2020. If you're not familiar with his music, please tune in. And if you are, you'll be there. His eclectic style and range of material is amazing, his singing in Hebrew, English, and Spanish is passionate, and his guitar playing is masterful. Not to mention this fantastic band! Photograph ©2019 Allan Tannenbaum / sohoblues.com all rights reserved.
