From The Shive Archive: a picture of Stevie Van Zandt that you can pray to every night... featured in the new HBO documentary Stevie Van Zandt: Disciple

June 24, 2024

"Got a picture of Brian Wilson that I pray to every night," sings Little Steven in "Love Again," which mixmaster extraordinaire Bob Clearmountain calls "one of my favorite songs of Steve's" in the excellent new documentary Stevie Van Zandt: Disciple. And here (above,) courtesy of our friend and photographer extraordinaire Jim Shive, is a picture of Stevie that's definitely a worthy talisman for invoking the power of prayer, too. Jim caught Little Steven in action at what was then known as The Garden State Arts Center (a.k.a. the "opera out on the turnpike" in "Jungleland,") and is now known as PNC Bank Arts Center, on June 19, 1984.

Jim's beautiful photo also appears in Stevie Van Zandt: Disciple, and in celebration of the documentary's arrival on HBO/Max, he's now offering special limited-edition giclee prints of it in three different sizes. Click here for all of the details.
