    The Atomic Punks are a Van Halen cover band, and although I typically tend to shy away from tribute bands, I had heard really good things about these guys, plus one of my fellow photographers plays bass in the outfit. I really enjoyed their set and unlike other tribute acts where I sit back and… Read more →

    Life onboard the Monsters of Rock Cruise is nonstop music – which means nonstop scheduling and hard work for the production crew behind the scenes.  A shout out to all those hard working folk who keep the party raging for several straight days.  Several acts were scheduled to play before we even left port.  The… Read more →

    Growing up in the 70s and 80s, I was lucky enough to grow up with some of the best bands and music of my lifetime. Many of those bands have given up the ghost or might continue on but without the same sound. Styx, however, is not one of them. Yes, like most of the… Read more →

    I recall hearing the name and seeing the albums, but I had never actually seen or even heard The Kills before taking this assignment. The line was pretty long going into the show, which was a good sign as the prior two shows I saw at this venue had a weak attendance, and the venue… Read more →

    Walking up to the State Theatre I noticed the lack of crowd that I was used to seeing wrapped around the building, waiting to get in, but then again there were two other shows going on this night as well, and I am sure that contributed to the lower ticket sales. With that said, I… Read more →

    I said it before and I’ll say it again – there is nothing like going to a show with absolutely no expectations and being blown away. It is common knowledge that if you are going to see someone like ZZ Top or The Stones that you are going to see a great show. You know… Read more →

    Way back in the day, when the world was black and white, and I was only 15, my mother, after a great deal of beggin on my part, finally allowed me to attend my first concert.  This woman was tough.  KISS in Augusta in 1975, “Mom PLEASE???!!!!” “No.” “But Mom, it’s UFO!” Again in 1975….

    Brian Forsythe, KIX’s guitarist, had told me that their sound check was at 4:30 p.m., and I was hoping to get there early and maybe we could grab lunch and catch up. Brian and I have been friends since 1985 when I thumbed down to Boston in the pouring rain to see them play on… Read more →

    I married a hardcore KISS fan, a man who judges all rock concerts by the fun, fire, and spectacle that is a KISS concert. He has been worshipping at the God of Thunder altar since 1977, and has managed to see the band seven times over the years. While seven KISS concerts is far, very… Read more →

    The day was just about perfect for an outdoor concert – not too hot, not too cold, and not raining like the last show I shot here – and by the way the audience filed in, I wasn’t the only one who noticed the beautiful weather. This was another show with an early start, and… Read more →
