Shane MacGowan – The Pogues – Atlanta GA, 9 Mar 2009 Shane, god love him, is an extraordinarily rare talent, but it’s hard to get a good picture of him because he doesn’t have many, or any, teeth. Photography info: Camera: Nikon D300 Lens: Nikon 24-70mm constant f/ 2.8 ISO 1600, 1/100s, f/ 2.8 at […]
Trent Reznor – Nine Inch Nails – at Phoeniz AZ, 15 May 2009. Although given last night’s Grammy debacle, I like to think of this as “Did you seriously just cut away from my act halfway through so you could thank your ad sponsors??” (For those who don’t know – The Grammys in its infinite […]

[do_widget id=social-widget-3] Having lunch with Josh Freese, wife Nicole, and son Hunter, during his fairly bizarre (in a good way) promotions for his Since 1972 solo release. Purchase packages ranged from a 5-minute call with him to his being your servant for a couple of weeks and getting to ride around LA in Danny Carey’s […]
[do_widget id=social-widget-3] Perry Farrell – Jane’s Addiction. Perry Farrell smoking … something … handed to him by someone in the front row. Lakewood Amphitheatre, Atlanta, GA, 10 May 2009. Photography equipment notes: Camera: Nikon D300 Lens: Nikon 24-70mm ISO 1000, 1/160s, f/2.8 at 48mm.
Nine Inch Nails. First moments of first show of the then-said-to-be-the-last NIN tour. (Later made moot by the decision to do another tour.) The Bowery Ballroom, New York, 22 Aug 2009. Photography equipment notes: Camera: Nikon D300 Lens: Nikon 24-70mm ISO 1000, 1/100s, f/ 2.8 at 48mm
