> Does anyone know who the woman in the framed Rainbow photo is?
This is a Peter Blake print from the sixties. Here's info, thanks to some
folks on The Shout:
For a brief time I really hoped Babe was my type. It was 1966 and I was on
the fringes of a pretty weird scene in South London. Thats how I first met
Babe Rainbow. Her real name was Lucy Malony. It was a couple of years before
Peter Blake did that picture. Its a really good painting, or print or
whatever, but its not the real Babe, not the Babe I knew, anyway. She said
Blake got her to wear those dippy bits n pieces because that was what he
wanted and that was that.
