Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, and Jean-Michel Basquiat at Warhol’s studio at 860 Broadway in New York City on April 23, 1984.

Madonna & Martin Burgoyne (Studio 54 bartender and Madonna’s best friend during that time), 1983 photographed by Maripol.

Burgoyne and Madonna befriended each other before she became famous. They were roommates and he played a huge role in Madonna’s early career. He managed her first tour and drew the cover image of Madonna for her 1983 ‘Burning Up’ EP album cover. They partied with artists Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and others. He was raised in England and went to New York to study art at the Pratt Institute.

Madonna and Burgoyne also supported each other emotionally and financially during hard times — after she was raped and when Burgoyne contracted AIDS.

Burgoyne died in 1986 after battling that disease. He was 23. Madonna wrote a song about him called “In This Life” that was on her 1992 album ‘Erotica.’ 

Photos include Madonna & Martin as well as Burgoyne’s sketchbook.
