1960s drawings of pop stars

As someone who grew up reading Look-In magazine in the 1970s, I love drawings of pop culture figures.  In the Teen World and Movie Teen Illustrated magazines I bought recently in America they had loads of drawings of bands – and not just all mainstream bands, some totally unexpected.  Some are good, some not so good.  Here they are and I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do:

Michel Polnareff in Bravo magazine 21 November 1966

For Valentines Day this year I got some amazing presents including 2 Michel Polnareff Italian language singles (Love Me, Please Love Me and L’Amour avec toi in Italian on one single and Ame caline and Le roi des fourmis in Italian on the other), plus this German language magazine Bravo from 21 November 1966 (no 48):

I’m including the cover just because I like The Troggs, but there’s also a large photo of Françoise Hardy, some photos of The Walker Brothers and an article on The Troggs.  It’s a great magazine, but the reason I’m posting it here is because of Polnareff, of course:

If I had the time I’d translate it – maybe at a later date, but there’s so much to share on here and so little time.  Also in the same magazine, they helpfully provided the French and German language lyrics for La Poupée qui fait non:

Must get back to my articles about Polnareff EPs at some point – I’ve only posted about two of them so far and there is so much more to cover.  Anyway, more soon.
