Bring Me The Horizon played London’s Royal Albert Hall on Friday 22nd April in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. Rocksound.tv described the bands performance as a “coming of age,” as the band sold-out the iconic Victorian venue to perform alongside a 60-piece orchestra. As a former deathcore band, performing classical reworks from their latest album, ‘That’s the Spirit’ in such a prestigious and […]

In 1977, a local country music magazine asked me to do a photo shoot with a country star by the name of Dolly Parton. They gave me her hotel information and room number. It was a much calmer time in those days! I showed up at the appointed time and knocked on her door. She […]

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 […]

In 1976, I was breaking into the business, but I didn’t know how to get access to shows. One night, I went to the Ivanhoe Theater in Chicago to try to talk my way in. I figured a small place would be easier. I went to the backstage door and started talking to the guy […]

Like in real estate, location is what it is all about in photography. Often I am given about two minutes when I walk into a venue or hotel to find a location to shoot a portrait. Sometimes it just comes to me. Walking around on stage during a television taping with Count Basie, I looked […]

In March of 2003, I got a call from a publicist from Lave Records, asking me if I wanted to do a shoot with a band she worked with. They were called O.A.R., and they were playing at the Aragon Ballroom. I had never heard of them, and figured that they were the opening act. […]

I always have some fun when I am around the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I first met them when they played a small club in Chicago. They were kind of young, and quiet back then. Later, when I was on tour with The Rolling Stones in New York City in 1989, I went to visit […]

In 1983, I decided that it would probably be a good idea if I started branching out from just shooting in Chicago. My first destination was the US Festival in Ontario, California, on May 28th, 29th and 30th of 1983. I called a publicist that I knew was working with the festival, which was organized […]

Early in 1989, I read an article in Rolling Stone that said that the Stones were going out on tour later in the year. I sent the same letter to Keith’s manager that I had sent the year before, “Heard you guys are going out on the road. Call me if you need a photographer.” […]

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 […]

When I was a kid, I started listening to Blues music and grew to be a big fan. I always wanted to meet the guys making the music, and getting in this business made that come true. In 1977, I went to a concert at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago and photographed Muddy Waters and Johnny Winter. The next […]

In December of 1987, I set up a photo shoot with one of my favorite artists, Alice Cooper. It’s always great to photograph one of his shows. He’s one of the greatest live performers on the planet. His manager asked me to do a photo shoot with him that night, but unlike most artists, he […]
