Firehose West Coast 2012 posters by Scott Johnson and Ron Donovan

Firehose Sacramento poster by Scott Johnson & Ron Donovan

Fire­hose reunited for the first time since 1994 this year, play­ing a short west coast tour. Just to make things clear, I’m not talk­ing about Fire­house, the 80’s hair metal band. But these posters WERE printed at the Fire­house Kus­tom Rockart Co., or Hangar 18…anyone not famil­iar with this band and their his­tory should make them­selves so…

Any­way, all of these prints were laid down on the same back­ground that was cre­ated for the series, which was a 3 color recre­ation of a weath­ered piece of parch­ment paper. The first of the series was Ron Donovan’s Bob Ross with Gene Sim­mons makeup, and the next three fol­lowed suit with more afros and the remain­ing mem­bers of Kiss. All four were designed by Ron Dono­van and Scott John­son, with each one tak­ing the lead on a rotat­ing basis. Why afros and Kiss? Why not? So, the series pro­gressed as follows…

Sacra­mento: Bob Ross / Gene Sim­mons 7 col­ors
San Fran­cisco: Richard Pryor / Paul Stan­ley 7 col­ors
Fresno: Lit­tle Orphan Annie / Peter Criss 6 col­ors
Indio (Coachella): Don Cor­nelius / Ace Frehley 12 colors
