@phish finally nailed their elusive crushing festival show at @bonnaroo The band was lost on the majority of the 80k fans that came to the festival, but for the long time fans that stuck around it was an epic performance. I’ll post more about the weekend but for now check out @treyanastasio and that mug
A year ago we lost @anthonybourdain and the world got a little less fun. However bad you have it few of us have the zest for life that Tony did. It’s sad that people who have it all can’t find happiness but it cannot be bought. It has to come from within and should be fueled by your love for your friends and family. Enjoy yourself. Live. Love. Reach out if you need help because people do care. Call me. Call my mom. Call 8002738255. Stick around. Life goes fast enough as it is.
@vampireweekend is the first magazine portrait shoot I’ve done in years for @relixmag Magazines are an endangered species and it’s always nice to see your shoots on paper in this day and age. Also had some fun talking to @arze about his love for jambands and the influence of the @gratefuldead in some of their new tunes.
Happy Bday @prince What can I say that millions haven’t? Where do we get that funk now that you’re gone? Why’d you leave so soon? The party was just getting started. You, Lennon, Mercury, Petty and Garcia amongst my favorites that left us way too soon. I hope you’re eating pancakes wherever you are.
We say goodbye to the good doctor today as Dr John has died. Dr John was a true original and his music has some of the deepest mojo I’ve ever heard. A couple years back he did a 3am at the Howling Wolf that was one of the deepest Voodoo grooves I’ve ever experienced. This shot is from the festival that got their name from one of his albums @bonnaroo during his NiteTripper late night set. He was a true original that inspired many great musicians and he will be missed.
@taylorswift@brendonurie capping off a great day @1027kiisfm@wangotango_ Thanks to TSwift for tagging the photogs! That’s the way the true pros do it and welcome to her 118 million followers! I got a special post coming later for you all!
@eltonjohn@rocketmanmovie opens today and the reviewers are foaming at the mouth. I was a huge Elton fan and 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' is one of my desert island discs. The first time I shot Elton, he was performing with @gunsnroses at the 1992 @mtv@vmas at Pauley Pavilion in LA. I saw him backstage and was pretty stoked cause this was my first chance to talk to him. 'Hi Elton, can I get a picture' without looking up he said 'Piss off'. In two words I realized my fantasy had been shattered and Elton was an asshole. Wasn’t the first or last time that happened, just a crushing blow to what was left of my teenage heart.
Happy Bday to my brother from another mother @lennykravitz Every time I check into a hotel the clerk says “any relation to Lenny?” To which I reply “I am Lenny in disguise so please no autographs” Pix from 1993 @mtv@vmas in LA
