COC and KYNG photos from Ride For Dime , Ace Frehley Dallas 2016

Photo gallery updates tonight include live photos of Corrosion Of Conformity and Kyng from their performances at the recent Ride For Dime 2016 show August 20, 2016 in Dallas Texas at Gas Monkey Live in celebration of Dimebag Darrell’s 50th birthday. The show also featured sets from Prong, Honky , an amazing tribute to Darrell from his friend and former Grim Reaper guitarist Nick Bowcott. The show was once again hosted by our brother Jose Mangin of Sirius Xm Liquid Metal. This was our biggest and best attended show in Ride For Dime history and was a perfect celebration of Dime’s life and music by fans, family and some of his closest friends. It was an honor to have folks like Grady Champion, Bobby Tongs, The Kat John Brooks, and the Rat provide their services for the day to make the show run flawlessly.

We have launched a new official Ride For Dime YouTube channel that will feature performances from past , present and future events. You can check it out and subscribe to be notified of new content here: Ride For Dime Official YouTube . There are currently a dozen videos from past events, we will continue to add content as time allows.

While in Dallas for the RFD event, Rita and I had the chance to go see legendary KISS guitarist Ace Frehley’s show August 18 at Gas Monkey Live. Ace put on another stellar show that included classics like Strange Ways, Deuce, Rip It Out, Cold Gin and more. Getting to hang and catch up with Ace after the show was definitely a highlight of the weekend, for both of us having been fans for the better part of 40 years. 14063833_10207317000178395_5394557037478211970_n

Ac/Dc with Axl Rose Atlanta Concert Photos and Review

Last Thursday, September 1, 2016 I had the honor and pleasure of photographing one of history’s greatest rock and roll bands – Ac/Dc in Atlanta Georgia for RockRevolt Magazine .

In my 17 year career as a photographer this was the first chance I have had to photograph the band which includes crossing off another guitar legend from my bucket list, the one and only legendary Angus Young. As we all know, the band is currently being fronted by Guns N Roses singer Axl Rose , who absolutely NAILED it. My inner 12 year old was out in force the entire evening as the band played hit after hit after hit for nearly three hours. The sold out crows at Phillips Arena was on their feet from start to finish singing along to each and every song. I could write much more about the evening, but I will instead suggest you click the link below and read RockRevolt Magazine editor Valerie King’s wonderfully written review of the show. We had such an incredible time, that just moments after walking out of the venue, we were both so blown away that we wanted to go again the next night. With only 5 shows left on this tour, and possibly their final Us tour, I highly suggest if they are anywhere near you, DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW !!! I have seen and photographed well over 10,000 concert in my career, and this one stands out in the top 5 !

You can read the full review of the show here: Ac/Dc 9-1-2016 Atlanta concert Review RockRevolt Magazine . 

Photos from the show can also be seen on the RockRevolt site as well as a gallery  on my site here: Ac/Dc photos Atlanta 2016 Chad Lee Photography .

I’ve been working on a couple of projects this past week that required me to go through my archives of Dimebag Darrell  photos. While doing so I

updated my site with over 200 images from 8 different Damageplan concerts and the final photo shoot Darrell and I did at and near his home in October of 2003 for several of his endorsements including KORG , Dean Guitars , Krank , and DImebag Hardware .
