Max’s Icon: Waylon Jennings

Max’s Icon: Waylon Jennings

“This was taken on the second floor of the famed nightclub known as Max’s Kansas City. Anybody who was anybody in New York hung out at Max’s, and famous musicians from all over the world would drop in, including Waylon. He was the headliner at Max’s that night, and this photo was taken in the afternoon, during sound check. And as you can tell, Waylon seemed quite interested in getting himself into a bit of trouble with a little New York City girl with a camera. I might add that I’m 100 percent certain that he succeeded in getting into trouble that night, but I’m happy to report that it wasn’t with me…. Waylon had many different personalities. And charm and playfulness was one of them.” — Raeanne Rubenstein
