American Dream Conceptual Art

Penthouse Magazine - October, 1980What, We Worry?

When in 1903 — or was it ’04? — my mother and father came to the United States from the old country, their dream was not unique. Steady work and schooling for the boys, who were born during the following decade. He was a tailor, a quiet man. She was a seamstress, nimble of finger and mind. He was easy, seeking no more than his due. She was feverish, seeking something more. Though she was skilled in her craft, her spirit was the entrepreneur’s. Out there, somewhere, was the brass ring. This was, after all, America.MORE from Penthouse

Dixie Chicks Caveat

Penthouse Magazine - September 2000Road Chicks

It surprises a lot of people to hear this, but the Chicks have been touring for more than ten years. There isn’t much these fearless Texas women haven’t seen or done. But they might never have gone on the road if it hadn’t been for the generosity of one of their female fans.MORE from Penthouse

Three years before the Dixie Chicks figured out that music and politics rarely mesh like a beautiful chord, they had fun stories to tell.

The Doors: Abre Las Puertas | 30 Years Ago This Month

Open the Doors

Penthouse Magazine - September 1990Riders on the Storm

It seems that whoever met Jim Morrison walked away with a different impression: southern gentleman, prick, poet, brute, charmer, et cetera.

I lived with Jim for six years on the road and in the recording studio. This book is my truth. It may not be the whole truth, but it is the way I saw it. From the drum stool.MORE from Penthouse

People who have never heard of the The Doors could well be familiar with their music. An insider now opens The Doors for Penthouse.
