Broadway Wall of Fame…the Unveiling

The story here is I drove down to the the restaurant, Dopo Teatro which is one block from Times Square, with the owners of the Long Island Wyland Gallery.  There was a red carpet with Paparazzi hanging out early to get a good spot, fighting with each other…literally (one was kicked out by John Stamos’s body guard). Over 200 hundred people filled the restaurant including many day time soap stars and the whole cast of “Bye Bye Birdie” (and even the hair dresser for 17 years of the late Joey Ramone).

When John arrived the  video that Mike Love made backstage in Tampa(see my previous blog) was  played as a tribute to John congratulating him as the first on what is now known as “The Jim Warren Fame Wall”.  Not a person to be one-upped, Mike mentioned that The Beach Boys are right behind John for the Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary tribute on the Fame Wall Los Angeles!

When we finally did the unveiling around 11:30 at night, the camera lights were flashing like crazy. John Stamos gave a double-take at my painting and simply said “I want to take this home with me.”

John’s tribute portrait is now hanging  on the specially prepared wall as the first on this New York Fame Wall with room for many new paintings…the next inductee to be announced soon.

    Great picture but he is (in my opinion) the most beautiful man on God’s green earth. That is just an opinion

      Hi Kathy!

      Jim hasn’t painted me yet but I’ll pass on the suggestion! And you can find Self Portrait by using the index on Jim’s site and going to the “s” section..it’s there!
