Girls & guitars, 2 . . .
Three of our favourite girls - since the 1960s - and their guitars. They go on, decade after decade ...
Marie Laforet (our favourite from PLEIN SOLEIL/PURPLE NOON) in ST TROPEZ BLUES, 1961
Francoise Hardy (my teenage crush)
Joni Mitchell - evergreen. More on all them at labels.
I remember watching Joni waiting to go on at The Royal Festival Hall in 1970, the hippie princess with her guitar, standing at the side of the stage, not thinking I would be talking to her 2 years later in Kings Road, Chelsea .... as detailed previously.
