The Top 100 started as a hobby; a fan adoring his musical heroes and paying tribute by making portraits of them. The hobby became obsession and the project went from the boy’s room into the art world. But I'm still that fan, it's about them in the end, their music, and not about me.

Ed Sanders of the Fugs
Oil on canvas, 7 x 5 inches, 2016
Frenzy is a song from The Fugs' second, a self titled album from 1966. The song features, like their name, not so subtle references to the act of making love. They are also known for their not so subtle political satire. Frenzy was written by Ed Sanders, who together with Tuli Kupferberg, headed the band. Liner notes on the LP The Fugs were written by Alan Ginsberg.
