For this latest edition of our Picture Book series, we present to you our favorite photos of musicians with the ol’ stars and stripes. Do you have any favorite ones? Send ‘em over to whenyouawakela at gmail dot com and we’ll add them to the list. Check out photos of Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen and more after the jump.

It’s Movember, folks! Movember is the global fundraising movement dedicated to raising awareness of prostate cancer and men’s health. Thousands of men from across the world sign up and pledge to grow a mustache from scratch for the entire month November (no shaving)!
Though I can’t technically grow a mustache (I am female after all), we still wanted to fully support the movement here at When You Awake so have put together this collection of some of our very favorite mustaches to lend you inspiration.
If Dylan, Parsons, Harrison, The Avett Brothers and just about every other one of our favorite musicians have worn mustaches, surely you can do it for one month for charity, right?
But that ain’t all. If any of you decide to participate, email us (whenyouawakela at gmail dot com) your page on the Movember website and we will not only 1) feature your profile on When You Awake but 2) put all of the readers’ names who completed Movember into a hat and choose one to make a special mixtape for at the end of the month (on any theme of your choosing). So get out those razors for one final shave and check out more of our favorite ‘staches after the jump.
Dusty Springfield spinning vinyl. Additional photos of famous and not-so-famous women spinning vinyl –including Brigitte Bardot, Bobbie Gentry and others — are after the jump.
We saw this picture of When You Awake’s Editor in Chief Jody Orsborn’s parents, taken on their wedding day in Napa, California in 1970, and were so inspired that we decided to put together some of our own favorite vintage hippie wedding pics. Check them out after the jump. Do you have some good ones of your own? Post them up over on our Facebook page.
