Band Bio from Wikipedia 

Anthrax is an American thrash metal band from New York City, formed in 1981 by rhythm guitarist Scott Ian and bassist Dan Lilker. The group was considered one of the leaders of the thrash metal scene during the 1980s. Of the “Big Four” thrash metal bands (the others being Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer), Anthrax were the only band from the East Coast. As of April 2017, the band has released 11 studio albums, several other albums, and 26 singles, including collaborating on a single with American hip hop group Public Enemy. According to Nielsen SoundScan, Anthrax sold 2.5 million records in the United States from 1991 to 2004, with worldwide sales of 10 million.

Noted for its live performances, Anthrax signed with the independent label Megaforce Records, which released the band’s debut studio album in 1984. Lilker soon left the band to form Nuclear Assault, and was replaced by roadie Frank Bello. Lead vocalist Neil Turbin was replaced after two years by Matt Fallon, who was then subsequently replaced in 1984 by Joey Belladonna. With a new lineup, the band recorded Spreading the Disease (distributed by Island Records) in 1985. Anthrax’s third album, Among the Living, was released in 1987 to critical praise. The band experienced another lineup change in 1992, when John Bush from Armored Saint replaced Belladonna as lead vocalist. Sound of White Noise was released the following year, peaking at number seven on the Billboard 200. Studio recordings during the 1990s saw the band, influenced by other genres, experimenting with its sound.

Anthrax’s lineup has changed several times over their career. The band has had a number of vocalists including Neil Turbin, Joey Belladonna, Dan Nelson and John Bush. Founding member Scott Ian and early arrival Charlie Benante, who joined Anthrax in 1983, are the only band members to appear on every album. Bassist Frank Bello has played on every album, except for the band’s debut Fistful of Metal, which featured Dan Lilker. In 2010, Belladonna returned to Anthrax and has since recorded two more studio albums with the band, Worship Music (2011) and For All Kings (2016)

Artist Promo/Portraits Updated Hellyeah, Gary Holt and Chuck Garric

As always, when time allows I have been going back through my archives of images from the past 20 years and adding content from past shows and shoots to the site.

 This weekend’s update is the the Artist Promo/Portrait/Studio section. Additions include photos to the Hellyeah gallery from four different shoots with the band in 2006, 2007 and 2010. 

Includes never before seen images from the bands first photo shoot that we did in October of 2006 in Chicago over two days for the album cover artwork and press for the debut cd, which landed at #8 on the Billboard charts. 

You can view them here: HELLYEAH photo shoots

Another addition are photos of SLAYER and EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt , taken in my studio in February of 2016 on an off night from the Slayer/Testament tour. Gary had just received his new ESP GUITARS custom guitar painted in his own blood by artist VINCENT CASTIGLIA. This was the first shoot he had done with it , and what an amazing piece of art it is ! As a long time fan of both bands it was an honor to have him along with Chuck and Tiffany Billy in the studio followed by some amazing Bbq.

Here is a shot of the amazing piece of art from the studio shoot as well as one of it live on stage in action at a show in Atlanta later in the year

Final addition is a gallery of photos from a couple photos shoots over the years with friend Chuck Garric , bassist of Alice Cooper and front man of his own band Beasto Blanco that features Alice’s daughter Calico Cooper ! If you have not heard them yet , do yourself a favor and go pick up BOTH of their cd’s ASAP . Best description of Beasto Blanco is that if Motorhead and Rob Zombie had a baby it would be Beasto Blanco.

Dimebag Darrell / Damageplan 200 images added for viewing

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 . I will add more miages as time allows, including Pantera photos from  several tours once I have the old film negatives scanned. I had the distinct honor and pleasure of photographing Dime and the guys through the years numerous times on and off stage. Over the past several years since he was tragically taken from us many of these images have appeared in magazines around the world, posters, shirts, hats and more.

For now  this gallery features images from 8 shows between April and November of 2004 including 3 shows in Milwaukee, 2 shows in Chicago, Rockford, Madison and Dallas .

Rex Brown photos uploaded for viewing

In August of 2015 I had the honor and pleasure of having legendary bassist Rex Brown of Pantera, Down and KIll Devil Hill in my studio for two days of shooting. WE spent some time on various locations, including putting Rex and his new Warwick bass hip deep in the Harpeth River here in Nashville. It was a nice change for the day as temperatures were over 100 degrees and the water was quite refreshing. The rest of the time was spent photographing him with each of his new WARWICK signature basses and amps for future promotional use. Some of which have since started to appear on the net in various press releases as well as ads in magazines including Bass Player, Bass Guitar, Bass Musician and others. Included in this gallery are a handful of samples that have since been published as well as some of the actual ads. I will keep you posted as more are published and where you can find them.

I keep meaning to update here daily, but  life happens, and before I know it, a week or more has gone by. LOTS going on lately

keeping me incredibly busy. In the last 4 weeks I rode my bike over 3000 miles to the 75th annual Sturgis Motorcycle rally and hung out

for 7 days. I will post photos from the trip and amazing landmarks like Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse soon. Followed that up with a quick trip to Dallas for our annual Ride For Dime charity event down there, as always had a great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Spent 3 beautiful days at “the compound” as Darrell and Rita affectionately call it. More details on that weekend and photos to come this week as well as i try to catch up and stay current.

Lots of behind the scenes work going on as we get closer to the 4th annual Nashville Ride For Dime featuring SLAUGHTER this year. It too will have a separate update with ALL the details about our show this year , which is our biggest show to date. We have moved up to a 1600 seat venue – Marathon Music Works in downtown nashville.

Things have been jumping at Chad Lee Photography studio also with some amazing shoots in the past few weeks that have included legendary

Pantera bassist and friend Rex Brown. Rex and I had an epic 2 day shoot that included getting him neck deep in the Harpeth River, and 2 days in the studio photographing all kinds of things that I can share with you soon ! Had a great shoot with the high priestess of modern rock and roll Lzzy Hale of Halestorm for a few upcoming projects that include Marshall amps, and much like Rex, other things i can share soon. She is an absolute pleasure to work with, and always fun to hang with. We followed the shoot with a great dinner with NIck Bowcott and Halestorm guitarist Joe Hottinger.

Yesterday I spent a few hours in the studio with the guys in BEYONDUPLICATION from Bowling Green Kentucky. An AMAZING group of guys and they bring the METAL !! Super nice and humble guys, with an amazing drive and work effort, putting everything they have into this band. Recently wrapped up recording a new cd here in nashville and prepping to unleash it on the world. We had an AMAZING shoot taht included lighting drums on fire, which always makes for a good day !

here are some samples from the above mentioned shoots – stay tuned for more !
