I've put up a few limited edition t-shirts

Ya know I take photos of musicians because I love music *sidenote: I'm a musician myself...drummer

I also love photography...many different facets of the medium intrigue me not just photos of musicians and pop icons...I don't do this because I make a shit load of money, actually it's very very difficult to make a living at this unless your Ross Halfin or Danny Clinch

Sometimes taking photos of bands is more a chore than anything else, but the reward for all of the hard work is when you get that shot...

So dig this, I was talking with a bud of mine about how killer the Heavy Trash album is and how many hot model chicks he's been shooting lately ya da ya da and the topic of Aerosmith and Motley Poo came up, there going to be in the area again and he's put in a request to shoot them.

This had me scratching my head, hmmm this might be cool.

I'm sure there's going to be a boat load of super hot chicks there...These cheesy hair rock bands always pull a lot of ass. I've never gotten seems like the more gay and devoid of soul the music is...the hotter the chicks are *shrugs*

Are they still relevant?

Yea, I guess there's still a Camaro driving, genny drinking, mullet wearing, fringe jacket having crowd that is still trapped in the 80's and listens to this crap...

I've never been a big fan of either band. I would always get hassled in high school because I didn't listen to this s**t and listened to the Cure, the Bad Brains and Fishbone...

So I asked my bud "Where are they playing?" Darien Lake in Sept...

DARIEN LAKE HAS THEEE ABSOLUTE WORST F'ING STAGE I'VE EVER SEEN!!...No shit, it's 10ft to 15ft in the air *literally* and you CANNOT get a good shot! well I guess there may be a way if you follow these steps

A. pray the the musician comes to the very front of the stage where your standing so you can attempt a shot
B. you've brought a ladder or stilts in your camera bag
C. you pay one of the security apes a large sum of money to hoist you up on there shoulders for three songs...

Are you kidding me!?!? What a F'ing joke!!!!

btw you have an escort telling you how to do your job, I'm a grown ass man...I DO NOT NEED A F'ING BABYSITTER...

Looks like I'll be taking a pass on the Aerosmith, Motley Poo show...*shrugs* Oh well
