Is there room for another Oscar on these shelves?
Below: Tom Hanks with Dave Clark at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2008. Hanks makes his point at the induction, below a portrait of the Dave Clark Five.
This is what happened to Russian model Anne Vyalitsyna when she listened to the Dave Clark Five (see album covers) before posing for the 2007 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. I told her she should have headed for the desert. In this gear, even a beach would have been preferable. (Richard, those boots may go well with my Cincinnati jacket!)

POP AND ROCK STARS AND TYPEWRITERS
In descending order: The Monkees (from left, Micky Dolenz, Englishman Davy Jones with an Olympia, Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith, whose mother, Bette Nesmith Graham, invented the curse of typewriter collectors, liquid paper, in 1951). The Who singer Roger Daltry in October 1985 with an Adler (?). The guy seated in front of a Facit in July 1962 is Tony Meehan, who was once the drummer with The Shadows and later became an executive producer and A&R man. He auditioned The Beatles for Decca, which famously rejected them in favour of Brian Poole and The Tremeloes, having said, "guitar groups are on the way out". The Hollies, another big British band in 1964. Graham Nash, seated at the Imperial, later became part of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The Beatles Fan Club office workers at an Imperial portable in December 1964. From left, Bettina Rose, Anne Collingham and Monica Stringer. New York quartet Sō Percussion, from left, Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski (at a Remington?), Eric Beach and Jason Treutingis, in 2008. Vocalist Cedric Bixler Zavala of the Mars Volta at his Royal Safari during the KROQ Weenie Roast at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, California, in May 2005. Interpol in Los Angeles in October 2002, from left, Daniel Kessler, Sam Fogarino, Paul Banks (at an Underwood?) and Carlos Dengler.
One for good measure ...
Staunton Military Academy, 1954. He wouldn't be able to type if it was the Dave Clark Five!
