I knew I was at risk.

Over the years Sandy Linter’s watched the best photographers, supermodels and lighting people work. As one of the top makeup artists in the world, her job has been to make models camera ready gorgeous, but when she’s the one being photographed, Sandy knows how to strike a pose.

The first time we met I was in my early 20’s. Sandy looked like an angelic goddess. It’s a mental image I will always remember. Here are some of my favorite photographs of Sandy.

In the 70s, I worked a lot with model, Rosie Vela. I was introduced to her as “Roseanne,” so I continue to call her Roseanne. She calls me “Red” because she remembers my red hair from 1975!! This gorgeous photo was shot by Albert Watson for Vogue and Harry King did her hair.

It was August, 1969. I was married to Adam Linter who managed a club called The Salvation, on 1 Sheridan Square in New York City’s West Village. I used to go there early in the evening to dance. One night Jimi Hendricks was there, all by himself, just tuning his guitar. No one else was there. He saw me and sang a minute of “Foxy Lady,” then took off his wristband and gave it to me. It was animal skin. Continue Reading

I’m reading Keith Richards’ book, LIFE. I’m into the chapter when Keith met Patti. Love this! They actually met at Studio 54 on her birthday in 1979. They’ve been together ever since. It’s a love story like no other. The book is awesome. I started with the hardcover, then it was too big to take with me, so I’m really getting into the softcover. Yes, I know I’m a little late…
