Bryan Adams’s Tony BlairImage courtesy of the artist and 401 Projects, New York.
On Saturday, the Far West Village’s 401 Projects opened its fall season with “Visions of Rock,” a gimmicky showing of photographs by eleven arts-inclined musicians. With an uncharacteristically bold-name roster of artists (shutterbugs include Lou Reed, John Mayer, Patti Smith, Lenny Kravitz, and Michael Stipe), the opening brought in the big names (Reed, Auf der Maur, and Stipe among them), but the face we were most happy to see was Tony Blair’s in the above photograph, which was taken by Canadian rocker Bryan Adams. We always knew Blair was cooler than our president. Plus, we just noticed that he’s kind of hot. —Rachel WolffWait, Bryan Adams Took a Picture of Tony Blair?
