The place was wild. Notice the moon and the spoon. Everyone and everything was HOT !

Enjoy,

That's me in the Studio video @ 2:22 "Funny Girls" the only manboy you can see.

Those were "THE" days.

Richard,

Are you kidding? ----thats great . The place was wild and the party did seem like it would go on forever.
Were you a regular ? I made it there a couple of times when I visited NYC. Those days were incredible.

What are the chances that you would be photographed at 54 and then be put in a video seen almost 30yrs later? Amazing!

When does the next one open? lol

V,

It is very difficult to describe the experience of Studio 54. It was the perfect storm of disco music, the drug culture, sexual inhibition and expression, economic  excesses, and the right people at the right time in the right place. I attended nightly as I sold Ecstasy in the back by the water fountain. It was an intimate ambiance as the majority of patrons were regulars, a lot like being in your own (very large) living room.

I don't think there will ever be another, as a large part of the above mentioned mix was innocence and excess, both of which (i believe) are gone forever.

Thanks to everyone for sharing the music.

Take care,

Richard
