Ibiza Rocks

Here’s the latest report from the Spanish leg of the Cosmic World Book Tour. Baron is in Ibiza where he gave his audio-visual presentation that includes tales of photographing Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones et al. Next stop: Mallorca for Mark Robinow‘s exhibit, “A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop a-lop-bam-boom, Six Decades of Rock ‘n’ Roll” at the St. Regis Mardavall where Baron will also be selling prints and signing books.

“My hosts here in Ibiza were Andy McKay and Dawn Hindle, two of the originals behind the former legendary Ibiza night club Manumission, where on any given night 10,000 partygoers gathered for an evening of music, theatre and revelry. Now Andy and Dawn are the driving force behind ‘Ibiza Rocks‘ a creative conglomeration of music venues, hotels and restaurants. A year ago they took over management of Pike’s, the once-celebrated hotel which had hosted celebrities from Tony Curtis to Freddie Mercury. Pike’s had fallen on rough times but Andy and Dawn brought their expertise to the property and once again it is a popular destination. The brand ‘Ibiza Rocks’ and its guitar pick logo is seen and recognized throughout the island, and the music continues in the courtyards of the ‘Rocks’ hotels in both Ibiza and Mallorca.
