Gary Sherman, photo by Mari Mur. I read that, before you became a filmmaker, you were a musician for Chess Records at a really young age. Were your parents in the music business? He was a manufacturer and retailer. He was quite successful. He died at the age of and danced all to way to the grave. Never sick a day in his life. Before the war he was big into silk, but when there was no more silk during World War II, he went bankrupt. After the war, the price of silk had gone up tenfold or twentyfold, because all the silk was destroyed.
It all came from Japan. My dad, who knew fabric inside and out, figured out how to make a tie that was silk on the outside and synthetic fabric on the inside. That way he could make a silk tie for a fraction of the price. He invented the one dollar silk necktie, which became the rage all across the United States. He went from being bankrupt to being extremely successful.
Did he want you to become his successor in the business? First he went after my older brother, but Mark wanted nothing to do with it. Fuck buddy Sherman he came after me. And I went off to art school, to his chagrin. I left home and put myself through art school.
We were separated for a while. Fuck buddy Sherman, and because of my lifestyle. I was a hippie. It was the sixties, man. My dad and my bride to be talked me into it. My mother and I were always… My mother died almost twenty years before my dad, which gave me a chance to become close to him. My dad was quite a guy. My mother always kept us a bit separate. The last ten years of his life I got to know him really well. I moved back to Chicago to spend time with him. When you went to art school, did you already have the ambition to become a filmmaker?
I wrote cartoons when I was really little. They were published in school. When I was a kid my parents were all in favor of me studying art. One of the best art schools in the world. They had a junior school, which I attended all the way through high school.
I drew, I painted, I sculpted. But when it came to college, and I wanted to go to SAIC, my parents said: No, you have to become a doctor, a lawyer or an engineer. So, you put yourself through art school? Later on, yes. I had told my parents I wanted to attend the Illinois Institute of Technology to become an engineer.
After Hitler had classified all of them as degenerate, they had a choice of leaving Germany or going to a concentration camp. Mies deed Crown Hall on the campus, which is now one of his most famous buildings. Crown Hall housed the Institute of De. The ground floor was for architects, the basement for deers. Mies liked architects better. I moved into a little room above a garage in a terrible neighborhood. It had no heat. But it was all I could afford.
What medium were you leaning towards at that time as an art student? The first year was foundation year. You had to learn every form of de. He felt that teachers were always teaching history. So, anyone who taught there, was only allowed to teach one day of the week. The rest they had to be working. The people we had coming in were unbelievable. Mies came every week.
Cosmo Kampoli taught sculpture. Misch Fuck buddy Sherman would come and lecture us on print making. An incredible environment. Aaron Siskind, the father of modern photography, came in to critique our work. Siskind was a little guy, always covered in cigarette ashes.
He lit his first Pall Mall in the morning and with that cigarette he would light the next one and so on, all day long. Anyway, he saw my work and asked me what I wanted to do. I answered: either visual de or product de. Next thing I knew I was a photography major. Well, this is where Chess Records comes in. I was working my way through school and one of the things I did to make money was play in a band. We played record hops on weekends.
We decided we wanted to put out a record, so we recorded one at the Chess studio. Afterwards, Fuck buddy Sherman sound engineer, a guy called Ron Malo, came up to me and asked if I could read music. I said I could. He said I had an incredible range and offered me studio work at Chess, mainly singing backing vocals. To which I said yes immediately.
I was the white kid at Chess. There were only two other white musicians. They were established musicians, I was just the white .
It was great. Around that same time I Fuck buddy Sherman an old 16mm Arriflex camera in school. Nobody knew anything about it. So, with some help I took it apart and got it to work. I started shooting some footage, just for fun. And when Aaron Siskind gave us an asment to photograph people at work, I asked him if I could shoot it on the movie camera. He was really friendly with me. So, I asked him if I could film the rest of the recording. He said: Yeah, man. I love having my picture taken. I told him it was for school. After a few minutes he says: This is great.
Well, it was pretty far-out footage. Bo was about to go on tour and they wanted me to go with him. I asked school if I could get that time off. So, I went on tour with Bo Diddley and shot the footage. When I came back, Marshall put me in contact with a post-production house and they taught me how to edit it. I ended up putting it together and Marshall sold it to like seventy-five television stations around the world. It won a bunch of awards and suddenly I was a filmmaker. And you were eighteen or nineteen at this point?
Yeah, I was nineteen when the film was finished. I used to lie about my age, because who would hire a kid?
Right after the Bo Diddley film, I got calls from other record labels who wanted me to do these music performance films, which were basically music videos before they were called that.Fuck buddy Sherman
