these guys aren’t in Black Flag anymore

2 years ago, when I pawed through my Black Flag shoot from the Observatory, I wasn’t very happy with the results. I pawed through them again today and found a couple that I like … It’s always good to get away from your photos after you take them … Then come back and look at…

I’ve been waiting 30 years to shoot this band.

Those who know me, know that Stiff Little Fingers have been my favorite band FOREVER. I’d say, since 1980. Last week I finally got to bring my camera to one of their shows. While this is not my best work, I have an excuse, it’s hard to shoot while bouncing up and down and singing…

WOT?!?!?! I got the cover? Well, part of it anyway

Punk Globe Magazine was looking for photos of certain artists to include in their “Best Of” Book. I was pretty happy when I got an email from Ginger Coyote from Punk Globe Mag that one of my Captain Sensible photos made the cover! (He’s up at the top, above the “u” in Punk).

RFTC | The Bronx | Dead Heavens

In the spirit of trying to keep these posts less wordy, I’ll make it brief: 1. This show was awesome 2. I’ve discovered that I’m a total wuss and prefer a barricade to shoot behind 3. There was no barricade at this show due to a request from one of the rock bands. 4. These…

Tres Padres near Cinco de Mayo

I am one of the biggest “dorky-fan-boys” I know. Needless to say, when I got a text from Lou Barlow last week asking for permission to use some photos I shot of a recording session back in 2013, I was blown away. I love all Lou’s music, but I have to be honest and say…

A 3-fer!

I hope when I type things like: “I was lucky enough to score a photopass” that I don’t sound like a phony. I truly feel lucky to get these photopasses. Regularly, professional, working, photographers will ask me how I get my photopasses … I am lucky to have friends in the right places who can…

Death or Glory #9 (I think)

While I am proud to work on every episode of Death or Glory, there are a couple that I am a little closer to. This is one of them. I think it’s because I was able to reach out to Tom Hazelmyer to be a guest, so I felt like I helped to get the…

That was in tents – Like a circus – Replacements.

I am cutting down on the wordiness of my posts. A few words and a few photos. Done and done. Now that I’ve exceeded my word-count allotment for this post … I’ll simply say that I’ve always felt that I was a little late to the Replacements … I think “Let It Be” was my…

Drive Like Jehu are pretty good

I saw Drive Like Jehu the other night in Pomona. It’s been over 20 years since seeing them last and they still are amazing. Rob Crow lending a hand on LUAU. SUIT UP!
