As a manager at a local Ticketron office from 1974 to '91, Ilona Simon snapped photos of Frank Sinatra and other music legends who blew through town. Now she's paying tribute to them with the photo exhibit Star Struck, on display at her martini bar, Budapest Blonde. "I was privy to the bands and backstage," she says. "I always carried a camera." Her collection includes photos of Boz Scaggs, Yoko Ono, and Elvis Presley, whom she caught at a 1975 concert. "He looked so good and fabulous," she recalls. "Amazing how two years later, he would balloon and die."
