I still remember getting a call back in 1997 from Wilbur Rimes, father of an incredible new young singer named LeAnn. Her song “Blue” was exploding on the charts.

In 1983, I decided that it would probably be a good idea if I started branching out from just shooting in Chicago.

In August of 1988, my next door neighbor, Don McLeese (who was the music critic for the Chicago Sun Times), asked me if I would like to go to New York with him the next day to shoot pictures while he interviewed Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. As Keith was one of my only […]

A few years ago, I lost my SM58 at a gig. As I scrambled about the festival grounds desperately searching for it and fighting back tears, I was met with curious looks and questioning eyes. Why the dramatics over a $100 mic that was so easily replaceable? One reason: that SM58 belonged to my mother. […]

In 1977, I went to a concert at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago and photographed Muddy Waters and Johnny Winter. The next […]
