In this photograph by Coco Gordon from Ray's Roof Event, you can see Ray adorned in jeans and t-shirt. (His shoes in this case were pink sneakers with masking tape on them, which was NOT typical.) In the 60's, Ray often wore a similar get-up, but instead ofthe 70's and 80's era denim jacket, he prefered a motorcycle jacket- a look which critic Jill Johnston told me she found "scary."
