Loverboy, July 1981 - Album Cover Art
As unbelievable as it seems my stylist could only fine one pair of red leather pants in NYC. Unfortunately they did not fit any of the guys in the group. My 13 year old daughter, Tymara, came home from school and they fit her, so she wore the pants and we hired a male hand model to complete the shot. There was never any duplicity about who wore the pants but over the years different members of the group took credit and it created a mystery that lasted for over 30 years. A year or so ago a Canadian Radio Station was doing a program on Loverboy and called to interview me about the cover. It was the first time anyone asked me outright who was on the cover and it seemed time to tell the story.
