Shot from the audience with my point and shoot. TOD puts on one of the best live shows I have seen. If you are sitting close to the stage, you always must be aware of debris (instruments) flying off of the stage. I have a story for you. Coming soon.

This is a shot of VTSM when they opened for DEVO.
We used this as a promo flyer. I think this was during 'Smeared", Saturn's guitar stance helped me figure that out.

This shot was taken on the side of the stage while he was waiting patiently for his band to arrive from NYC. They were stuck in traffic and arrived late. He just sat there waiting. I asked him if i can take his picture. He said 'No Problem". I will post more from the show soon.

Shot @ Lollapalooza 1995, David Yow has to be one of the most interesting characters I have ever shot. He looked completely out of his mind at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. All over the place, falling over chairs, knocking into people, falling off of the stage. This is a shot of one of his more 'graceful" moments. More Yow antics to come.

I am a HUGE Jane's fan, so getting to shoot Perry this close was a big rush for me. The lighting was just amazing this night. I plan on posting a lot from this show, as well as Jane's shows. Hope you like them.

This was taken during the "Escape From Bellevue" Show's second run. Some gal from the audience, ran up behind Chris Campion and started gyrating. Pretty funny.

This was my first U2 show. I think my dad got me and my buddy Rudy tickets in about the 10th row. Concert shooting was starting to become an obsession here. Sneaking the camera and the lens in every show i could. Not only was it truly amazing to catch The Unforgettable Fire tour, but we caught it at Radio City Music Hall.

To me, this shot really captured the energy of VTSM live. This was taken during their 2nd Boogaloo residency promoting their new album Circus of Enlightenment.(this shot appears in the album's booklet) We really got into the set dressing and tried to create a mini circus tent inside of Boogaloo. A video for Hi on Wade was also shot on this same night. Those Boogaloo shows were really amazing. I miss them.

Courtney Love was on the cover of Rolling Stone the week of this show. I had a copy of the issue in my camera bag. I saw her backstage skipping around aimlessly with no shoes on and ripped nylons, toes coming through and all. Ughh. She looked pretty fucked up. As she passed me, I decided to pull out the magazine and ask her to sign the cover. I thought it was going to be a disaster. Not saying a single word, she stopped, signed it and and skipped off.
My friend Mike Arfin is their booking agent and i had just hung with mike and met the band about 20 minutes before their set. Really nice guys. A lot of energy on stage, I enjoyed them.

I was planted in the 4th row to shoot Madonna for her Girlie Show Tour by this ticket broker guy. He thought it would be nice to give his clients some prints from the show. Good idea, especially for me. He had me shoot The Rolling Stones shortly after this. Posting them soon.

This is Bez from the Mondays, probably on a whole bunch of Hallucinogenics. The Happy Mondays were so great live. This was pretty much when they were in their prime. I went to the Garden the following night to see them open for Jane's Addiction. Didn't shoot, but wound up discovering Jane's. Amazing.
I shot the brand new 1000 asa speed film at this show (Ektar 1000), the following morning, I brought the rolls to 60 minute photo. I came back in 60 mins, they weren't ready, another hour...not ready, and so on. I waited in the store to get my hands on them, and realized that the photo clerks were making tons of copies for them and their friends. This show got me hooked forever shooting concerts.
