Brian Chalmers – Rolling Stones and KISS

Thanks to my good pal and former co-worker Charlotte, for this:

Here's a scanned picture of the Rolling Stones t-shirt that Brian did, that I mentioned in this post:

Charlotte's comments:

This t-shirt reminds me of all the copy-and-pasting Brian did with pictures... we laughed a TON about Jerry Hall's pic in the NO!!

Charlotte also shares a scan of the classic Buzzard shirt that Brian did for the initial reunion shows at Gund Arena when KISS came back in makeup, which I guess was 1996, if I recall correctly. While the scan cuts off parts of the picture, you'll get the point.

This was without a doubt, the most popular Buzzard t-shirt that WMMS did in the 90's (in my opinion.) The station made a really small number of these the first time around - maybe 250, no more than 500 at the most. Like the Rolling Stones and Petty shirts, we gave these away to concert goers on the air, and on the way to the venue.

I was really low on the totem pole at this point, and had to work hard to get hooked up with one of these shirts, which is still one of my personal favorites.

We did a 2nd pressing of these shirts later towards the end of the decade. At that point, the station was owned by Nationwide Insurance, and they made us put their logo on all of the shirts that were being made - so the back artwork for this one was later accessorized with a Nationwide logo in the bottom corner, which sucked. Still, Buzzard and KISS fans ate these shirts up, logo or no logo - this was a hot one.

Dig the classic script on the WMMS lettering!

I'll try to dig out my t-shirt in the next few days to take a picture of the full artwork.

P.S. - If anyone has other cool scans/pictures of Brian's stuff that they would like to share, email me and I'll try to get it posted here on the blog.

And a reminder for all, that Brian's memorial set for this Saturday, has a new location. Updated details are here.

Cheers!
