Yesterday, we featured a couple of the more unusual (more unlikely) subjects from the Allen Ginsberg photo collection housed at The University of Toronto's Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library - Madonna and Warren BeattyToday, we feature another - images of Sinead O'Connor. The occasion was her June 20, 1992 set at the legendary (New York) East Village club, Sin-é (famous also as the spawning ground for the young Jeff Buckley

On October 3, just three months later, she appeared in the notorious segment on NBC's Saturday Night Live, singing an a cappella version of Bob Marley's "War" and ripping up a photo of the Pope (John Paul II)   

Never a stranger to controversy

and always an extraordinary voice. 

See for example here 



and here 



and here (to just give three instances):




Recent tragedy (the sickness of her son) has caused her to currently (temporarily, we hope) retire from the public stage
(mindful too of promoters and their rip-offs (see here)
and her own deeply-personal challenges - here 

Here's a recent interview (from April) promoting her tenth studio album, I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss
