Dan + Shay & The Band Perry Rock Out Wrigley Field

Last week in my summer soundtrack blog post, I wrote about how summer to me is country music. Well, that’s just how I spent this last Saturday night! I gathered with all my other country music fans at Wrigley Field to catch Dan + Shay, The Band Perry, and Blake Shelton on the Ten Times […]

Dailey & Vincent: Bluegrass at its best!

Since their formation, Dailey & Vincent have been a favorite of mine in the bluegrass genre. They brought Shure into the picture early on, and we have been enjoying this relationship ever since. The group was the first to perform at the S.N. Shure Theater inside of Shure HQ. I told Jamie and Darrin last […]

Backstage With Paul: Anthrax & Public Enemy

I have been friends with the guys in Anthrax for their entire career. Back in the beginning, when their first album came out, I was regularly selling pictures to Playboy Magazine. I met up with the band backstage at the Aragon Ballroom, and in the course of the conversation, I told them that if they […]

CMT Crossroads: Dierks Bentley & OneRepublic

Talk about 2 very different voices: Dierks Bentley and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic. However, two very good songwriters! The stories and melodies that come out of these two artists are unique to them, and putting them together was such a great combination. Not only that, they had to treat some of the songs differently as […]

Backstage With Paul: The Jacksons & Kansas City BBQ

In early July, Rolling Stone called and asked me to go to the Jacksons’ Victory Tour opening in Kansas City. Turns out, they liked the Springsteen and Prince photos, too. I flew down the night before the first show and went to the press conference at the Hyatt in downtown Kansas City. What a circus! […]

Backstage With Paul: CREEM Magazine & Monetary Reality

Paul was on the fast track to fame and fortune after that fateful night with Bonnie Raitt… or so he thought. Turns out that a picture may be worth a thousand words, but not necessarily thousands of dollars… “After my photography career started, I had to figure out how to make money at it. One […]

Congratulations Rhonda Vincent & The Rage!

If you want to see what a busy touring schedule looks like, look up Shure Artist Rhonda Vincent on Google and find her tour schedule. Ever since I meet Rhonda back in 2004, I was very impressed by her performances I had seen at the IBMA Bluegrass Awards. Her group, The Rage, was always super […]

Dave Mustaine & Shure!

Late in 2013, I had scheduled an interview with legendary Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine.  The last time I went to a Megadeth show was about 2 years ago in Louisville.  After the show that night, I had the pleasure of hanging with Dave for about 90 minutes.  We had a lot of great things to […]

A road trip with my son to see Shinedown & Skillet – PRICELESS!

How many times have you left town to go see a show a few hours away?  I’ve seen some pretty cool shows both out of town and out of state.  I remember going to see the first Monsters of Rock tour in 1988 with Metallica, Van Halen, Scorpions, Dokken and Kingdom Come at Alpine Valley […]
