Popiconic Moments 1. Die
Iconic moments from Pop Music. Here Pete Townsend of the Who is stuttering My Generation in I965. The painting is a stencil from the exact moment he says “Die” in the phrase “Hope I die before I get old”. He is not hoping for an early death but expressing the hope that he doesn't get “old” in attitude like the older generation he sees about him. He doesn't mind getting old but wants to retain some of the enthusiasm for life that youth naturally has. At this moment the younger generation no longer wanted to emulate the older generation as had always been the case, but create their own aspirations and heros.
The colours are a retina-scratching colour pairing.
