Sam's Current Obsessions: #2 - The Fool

  The Fool were a design collective and a band during the mid-sixties to early seventies who influenced psychedelic rock and art BIGTIME. Although their band didn't really make it big, their art definitely did. They painted the Beatles' famous Apple Boutique building (before it was ordered to be painted over in 1968), designed a lot of the clothing for the store, and painted many other famous psychedelic art during the late sixties.

wife and my favorite person ever!

  1. The Fool --- Cool!
    FYI, Marijke is recreating for me the bagpipes Simon played on The Fool's LP, she's been commissioned to paint a set for me this summer (she's already completed the chanter pipe). Yours in Foolery, Kevin the Piper
