Max’s Kansas City

Steven Kasher and artist Forrest Myers (aka Frosty), talk about Max’s Kansas City, the gathering place for artists and musicians from the 1960s to the early 1980s. It was home to Andy Warhol and his entourage, as well as the iconoclastic New York music scene—the Velvet Underground, the New York Dolls, and undiscovered musicians such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Blondie, Iggy Pop, and Madonna. Kasher’s book Max’s Kansas City includes essays by Lou Reed, Lenny Kaye, Danny Fields, and Steven Watson, and photographs.

There's an exhibition of photographs from Max's Kansas City on view at the Steven Kasher Gallery Septermber 15-October 9.
