If these walls could talk they’d probably have some eye bulging, jaw-dropping conversations to share. The music industry's top innovative superstars of the time are here partying with standup comedian "Sam" Kinison, who was known for his intensely harsh sense of humor.

According to Billy Idol’s biography Dancing With Myself, this photo was taken after the HBO Young Comedian Special back in 1984. According to Idol, this was the evening that spawned his friendship with Sam. Idol pointed out that at this time, Sam was heavily into coke and “was beginning to act more like a rockstar than a comedian.” No doubt this was a crazy night for all of them.
