Last night the epic CARBON FESTIVAL kicked off with the legendary RICKY POWELL slideshow event at 1000 Pound Bend. With plenty of rum and coke on hand plus his favourite size 12 Pumas in tow, Ricky took us through a two hour journey of his iconic life. Capturing moments as the ’4th Beastie Boy’, Rick told us stories of the seminal Run DMC Raising Hell Tour, befriending the one and only Basquiat and jonesing mama loving from bisexual beauty Sandra Bernhard and make up artist turned actress Debi Mazar. One of the most entertaining events I’ve been to in a long minute, Ricky took us all down memory lane to a better time when the drugs were stronger (DUSTED), the women fly as shit, and the streets electric. Check out my snaps below and make sure you get down to see the rest of CARBON on for this weekend only. Love you Ricky…you’re a true inspiration you dirty fuck!!!
