Right now, at the Fullerton Museum Center (301 N. Pomona Ave, Fullerton Ca. 92832 (714) 738-6545), where Roy Buchanan's Telecaster, which he called Nancy is on exhibit in the Leo Fender Gallery through 2010 in a show called “Solid Design: Leo Fender’s Telecaster,” the current exhibit in the main gallery is “The 100 Worst Album Covers.” You can also find this Beatles album cover along with Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica, some Jackie Gleason LPs and more artifacts that may or may not be silly, disgusting or just plain pop culture kitsch. The nice thing about all this -- for me, anyway -- is that it all ties in neatly to my weltanshauung. I am such a weltanshauung kind of guy, you see. That's why they call me Doctor Noe.

You can find my Roy Buchanan Telly Talk DVD constantly playing on the far right of this picture (yup, that's my boy Dylan glued to the tube watching his daddy's creation) ...

I grew up in Orange County. My father had a record shop. The Beatles Butcher cover had another cover on top. They were able to get the cover off somehow to reveal the true cover. Made a lasting impression on me as a kid.
