Rock icon Fender Stratocaster turns 60

Fender.ad.motorcycle Buddy.Holly.&.the.CricketsHard to believe, but the Fender Stratocaster, which changed pop music, now is 60. The solid-body electric guitar was built in 1954 by Leo Fender, George Fullerton and Freddie Tavares at their small California shop. Buddy Holly was an early fan of Fender’s futuristic looking  guitar, which he showed off on his first album with the Crickets in 1957.

Part of Fender’s success came from the print ads devised by Bob Perine, who attended the Chouinard Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles and went on to open his own ad agency in Orange County in the 1950s. Bob devised a series of clever ads that showed young people carrying Fender guitars while surfing, skydiving, riding motorcycles and being at the beach. Bob also redesigned the Fender logo. When Bob Dylan walked out on stage in 1965 at the Newport folk music festival, carrying a 1964 Fender Strat and began playing rock music with a band — he was booed at the time — the world would never be the same again. A few years later, Jimi Hendrix lit his Stratocaster on fire at the Monterey Pop Festival.

Canadian freestyle skier JP Auclair dies in avalanche

jp-auclair.Photograph by Chris O'Connell

JP Auclair, 1977 – 2014. Photograph by Chris O’Connell

Last year, we posted a fabulous video that captured some urban freestyle street skiing made by legendary skier Jean-Phillipe Auclair and Dave Mossop of Whistler’s Sherpas Cinema.

Sadly, JP Auclair died this week in an avalanche in the mountains of Patagonia in Chile. He was 37. National Geographic’s Carl Andreas Fransson, originally from Sweden, was also found dead. Two others survived.

Here is the video that Auclair and Mossop made in the industrial town of Trail, British Columbia, and Nelson, B.C. They shot it without a crew and didn’t take out any permits, but it caught the public imagination like no other ski film:Last week, Auclair posted this video on Facebook, saying he was thinking about skiing “dreamy spines”:The Bella Coola is a remote area in the interior of British Columbia. The video shows how dangerous making these ski films can be.
