If you’re in LA, drop by the Leica Gallery on Beverly for “Rebel” by Richard Young open through Feb. 28. Richard Young got his big break covering London’s music and society scene when he crashed Richard Burton’s 50th birthday party hosted by Elizabeth Taylor. Taylor kicked him out. But Young developed a rapport with Taylor evidenced by a photo of her giving him the British version of the bird wearing her trademark bling including her Krupp diamond.
He shot the London music scene from superstars Elton John, Mick Jagger to the young punks Sex Pistols and Siouxsie Sioux and visiting Americans from Debbie Harry to Iggy Pop to Prince and Madonna. Of course, Kate Moss is included in her Johnny Depp era.
