Max’s Icon: John Chamberlain

“Much of John Chamberlain’s education can be said to have taken place in New York bars like The Cedar Tavern and Max’s Kansas City during boozy nights spent with New York School luminaries Jackson Pollock and Franz Kline along with Andy Warhol’s clique of demimondaines. His antics there (he was once arrested for drunken fisticuffs with a police officer) gave him a reputation as something of a bad-boy artist.” -Interview Magazine
