John Klemmer began playing guitar at the age of 5 and alto saxophone at the age of 11. His other early interests included graphics and visual art, writing, dance, puppetry, painting, sculpting, and poetry. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and began touring with various local midwest “ghost big bands” (Les Elgart, Woody Herman) as well as playing with small local jazz and rock groups. After switching to tenor saxophone in high school, Klemmer participated in the Chicago jazz scene, playing with commercial small groups and big bands while leading his own groups and touring.
Presented is an original concert tour sweatshirt from John Klemmer ? at the Roxy. The yellow crewneck is vintage and measures 16.75? across the chest and the 21.5? from top of collar seam to bottom. No tagging. Nice artistic saxophone design on front with a John Klemmer at the Roxy design on back. The shirt has some age spotting.
This lot is from the T-Shirt collection from the estate of Chuck Landis (aka Largo) veteran promoter, concert best known as co-founder of the Roxy West Hollywood rock club in the early 1970?s and in 1980. Many of the T-Shirts come from performances that were at the venue. They have been locked away for many until now.
The Rox bar was a regular hangout for John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Alice Cooper and Keith Moon Heidi Fleiss in the 1980s. So you can only imagine what stories can tell?
