New biography on the easy-riding raging bull arrives.
Tom Folsom’s biography, Hopper: A Journey Into the American Dream, was feted this past Tuesday night at New York’s SoHo House, with an oddly special performance by No. 1 fan Molly Ringwald and lust-filled director James Toback.
Guess old Jack wasn’t around.
In any case, the biography is supposed to be great stuff. How couldn’t it be with the kind of fodder only Keith Richards could come up with. Hopper died as a renaissance man, known for his photography and art collection, besides Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now, Blue Velvet, and so many unsung B-movies from the ‘50s and the ‘60s.
In honor of Hopper, the SoHo House teamed with Del Maguey mescal, the party went late, and natch, there was a vintage Harley outside the tony club, which many moons ago the actor would have declined membership.
