Who needs Calvin?
About ten years ago, Thom Yorke of Radiohead told me about how the band's guitarist, Ed O'Brien, was approached by Calvin Klein's people to model for them. Sensible Ed unsurprisingly declined the offer. As featured above in the pic from the band's website, DeadAirSpace, Ed comes across as rock n' roll sexy, stylish with ease, and iconic. In photos, Ed is downright striking. Ditto in-person.
