The Village People performing YMCA
Pictured here are The Village People performing live at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, circa 1970. As can be seen, by the outstretched arms here, the audience is singing and dancing along to the "YMCA."
Andy Warhol at his favorite spot, Studio 54
Pictured here is the man responsible for the creation of pop art, Andy Warhol. Surrounded by beautiful models and adoring fans, he is enjoying the atmosphere at Studio 54. Warhol was yet another famous frequenter of the club that always seemed to attract an excessive amount of attention.
For Andy Warhol's 50th birthday in August of 1978, co-owner Steve Rubell went above and beyond the norm, gifting Warhol a roll of 5,000 free drink tickets in addition to a large silver garbage can that was stuffed with about a $1,000 worth of crisp dollar bills. Warhol said it was the best present he ever received.
