Alice Cooper / Halestorm Nashville photos added

The current Alice Cooper / Halestorm tour came through Nashville over the weekend. Being hometown to Joe, Lzzy and Josh of Halestorm and Chuck Garric of Alice’s band, they played to a sold out crowd. Performing blistering sets , full of hits and classics at the iconic Grand Ole Opry.

Halestorm

Opening the show was Motionless In White ,with a 60 minute set from the Halestorm. Featuring a handful of songs from their Vicious cd  and favorites including, Love Bites, I Get Off, and more.   15 years ago i 1st saw them opening for Shinedown.     been a fan since and become friends   and seen countless shows. Sunday’s   , I saw an older, wiser ,  refined band . While they have always put 110% into their performances ,   this new tour this is a well oiled   machine.    no longer the young band finding their way, they are Grammy winning ,   road warrior   rock stars. From an early age , knew what they wanted , busted their asses, and went for it . on the way to a very long career at the top of their game. Watching them not change one bit as they have gained popularity and success . Treating every fan they same as they always have, making sure everyone feels loved and appreciated. After all , it truly is the fans that make a band,  they love each and every one of them. Living in the same city,   Joe and Lzzy are regularly out and about  supporting local bands,   performing  clubs as often as possible. Apparently their is hope for the future of rock and roll !

Alice Cooper

Closing the show Sunday was the King Of Shock Rock Alice Cooper .    Alice has certified himself as a timeless rock and roll icon . Having  a catalog of 27 studio albums, 48 singles, 11 live albums and 12 video releases , Grammy winner and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame  inductee . With no end in site , I highly suggest getting out to see this tour if it hits your area. Continually reinventing himself, this year’s stage show is everything a fan could want and more. Full of classics and a castle on stage with all the antics you know and love and new props and gags. His current touring lineup includes Glen Sobel, Ryan Roxie, Tommy Henriksen , Chuck Garric and Nita Strauss. The band is tight as can be and on fire. 

As a young child in the mid 70’s Alice’s album Killers is the first 8 track tape  I remember lifting from my mom’s collection. I was instantly hooked, and have been a fan ever since. In October of 2002 I had the honor and privilege of photographing my first concert with him in Milwaukee Wisconsin at The Rave . 

Sunday’s show

Putting on a 90 minute show, many of today’s younger bands can’t touch this 71 year old legend. Performing fan favorites like School’s Out, Billion Dollar Babies ,Under My Wheels and 17 others. Solo’s from all members, giant monsters, babies and the crowd favorite guillotine beheading , if you haven’t seen a show, do yourself a favor. Closing the fun filled set was the anthem School’s Out featuring Joe Hottinger and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm, with snippets of Another Brick In The Wall. Giant balloons, bubbles, and crowd covered in confetti Alice brought the show he is known for. Putting bands half his age to shame, lots of artists have stolen from , and imitated his act, even more should learn from it !

   Alice joined his band at an intimate venue The Basement East on an off day under the name The Goon Squad and surprised the crowd with a rare appearance. This the third time he has done this here in Nashville. A consummate professional that truly enjoys performing.

2019 tour promo video 

Chuck Garric / Beasto Blanco

Since that first show I have shot 10 more shows thankful to my friend Chuck Garric , Alice’s incredible bass player. Esp Guitars sent me out to do a photo shoot with Chuck for advertising in 2007 while still living in Chicago. We had a great shoot , images from it ended up being used in several ads for Esp and Coffin Case . Chuck and I hit it off that night , stayed in touch and reconnected when him and his wife moved to Nashville in 2013. An amazingly talented bassist, guitarist and vocalist, now with his solo band Beasto Blanco , that also includes Coop’s daughter Calico . Chuck , much like Joe and Lzzy can be seen regularly out and about in town and plays regularly with local bands, and events.

Rob Zombie photo gallery update 50 shows !

As time allows I continue adding images from the past. Today’s update is the Rob Zombie live photo gallery. Which now features images from 50 shows going back to 2002 . 

My first Zombie show was White Zombie opening for Pantera August 12, 1996 At the Riviera theater in Chicago. At the time I knew nothing about them, but have been a fan eve since. From White Zombie to his solo band, and all of his movie’s.

 

My 20 year career actually is due to my friendship with Rob’s guitarist John 5 . John and I met back in 1998 trading KISS posters . Back 1996 I shot the re union tour , seeing the photos John said ” these are great , you should do this for a living ! ” He and I have remained friends ever since, the rest is history .

  2002 was the first time photographing the band at Alpine Valley in East Troy Wisconsin. Since then I have shot nearly 60 shows all over the country. Festivals have included Ozzfest , Mayhem Fest , Uproar , Rock On The Range , Louder Than Life and others.

In This Moment – Photo Galleries

In This Moment – Photo Galleries

One of my favorite bands to shoot in the world is most definitely In This Moment. It has been a truly unique experience watching the band evolve from what was in the beginning, an opening stage act on Ozzfest to what is now a band headlining their own national tours . 

Their image has been a constant evolution, that continues to grow each year. Their concerts have become come well known for the several costume changes and on-stage imagery that constantly changes through their performance. After having spent several tours together and many other events, I am honored to consider them great friends.

My portfolio of In This Moment has has been updated with all of the individual photo galleries from the fourteen shows that I have photographed, including several festivals such as the Mayhem Festival, Rock On The Range, Welcome To Rockville and Louder Than Life.  

You can view over one hundred concert photos from several shows at this link:

Rick Springfield gallery updated   in Nashville – 10 years in a row

Rick Springfield gallery updated in Nashville – 10 years in a row

Had a great time working the past two nights with Rick Springfield at the Legendary Wildhorse Saloon here in Nashville. This marks 10 years in a row that Rick has sold out back to back nights over Valentine’s Day weekend. At 67  years young, he is still kicking ass and taking names. I highly suggest checking out one of his shows if you have the chance. They are full of timeless classic hits like Human Touch, Don’t Talk To Strangers, Affair Of The Heart, I’ve Done everything For You and of course the crowd favorite Jessie’s Girl.  Aside from the great music, Rick is an all around entertainer with amazing crowd interaction including bringing kids up on stage to sing and dance, walking into the crowd on tables during Human Touch and personal banter with fans during the show. 

I have had the pleasure of shooting these Valentine’s shows with him for the past 7 years including the after show meet and greets with the fans, who are incredibly passionate and supportive, many of them having travelled from other parts of the country and having seen him numerous times. 

 Saturday night he was joined on stage by long time former drummer Jack White who resides here in Nashville for a cover of the Kinks classic You Really Got Me. Past years have seen celebrity guests join him to sing along including Tom Kiefer, The Nelson Brothers and several others.

 You can view photos from nine shows going back to 2010 here on my site  Rick Springfield live photos .
