Graham Coxon and Damon Albarn of Blur For Premier Guitar

Check out one of my photos of Graham Coxon and Damon Albarn in the last issue of Premier Guitar. 

“Coxon and Damon Albarn began playing together as schoolboys in Essex, England. The telepathy, brotherly affection, and creative tension between them is a cornerstone of Blur’s most vital and enduring work.”
