Candid Photographs of Debbie Harry in ‘Vulture’ T-Shirt at the Whiskey a Go-Go Club, 1977

“The ‘Vulture’ shirt was given to me by one of Chris Stein’s oldest friends and it became one of my favorites,” Harry has since explained. “The skull and bones, we did an iron-on and put them on there. Those were my favorite black toreador straight-leg pants. I think they were cotton with a high waistband; really hot, good-looking pants. The little beret was dedicated to two of my favorite images: Patty Hearst when she was ‘Tania’ and Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde.”

This design is from the 1970s. The original was found in a sporting-goods shop. “We never knew what kind of team it was. It’s one of the first shirts I was photographed in. I wore it for shows.”

These photographs were taken by Brad Elterman at the Whiskey a Go-Go Club on the Sunset Strip in 1977.

  1. I love these! Thanks for posting! One minor consideration, however. "Candid" means, the subject didn't know the photo was being taken.
