There’s a reason why guitarist Ross Friedman goes by the monicker Ross The Boss. Get him on a stage in front of a wall of amps and if the fillings in your teeth don’t start rattling after the first chord, something ain’t right! Ross was member of Metal stalwarts Manowar for most of the band’s glory years. He is a founding member of both Manowar and Punk legends The Dictators. His work with Manowar covers the band’s best era and […]
Well what a fantastic day this years Record Store Day turned out to be! From catching up with friends from school to wrapping it all up with a classic Amyl & The Sniffers performance at Greville Records. For someone who has a love affair with records since I was ten years old, and someone who frequents record stores 3-4 times per week… it’s kinda Record Store Day everyday! But I still get excited when this date appears on the calendar. […]
Word amongst fellow photographers Australia wide was the lighting was a real challenge for the current Primus tour. Had I fully known how challenging, I would not have applied for this gig. But, I was already booked in and was not going to back out last minute. The show started the huge background screens seemed to be the main source of light creating nice crisp silhouettes of the band.

I dunno how I ended up in the front row of this one but boy did it prove to be an absolute war zone once Amyl and her sniffers hit the stage! But I digress a little. My partner and I who are both fans of the band decided to go to tonight’s gig. Purely as punters and a rare night out together. We bought a pair of tickets yesterday and were very excited to go and see the band. […]
It’s not every day one gets the opportunity to photograph Robert Plant. For mine, there is none bigger than any member of Led Zeppelin so getting the chance to photograph such a legend – I jumped at the chance. With two sold-out shows at the gorgeous Palais Theatre in St Kilda, my home and a mere walk away to get to the venue made it all even sweeter. I arrived at the venue an hour before showtime and I was […]
With the inaugural Download Festival finally upon us, the weather gods were not kind to the plethora of Melbourne Metal fans heading to the festival. It threatened to be an absolute blow out of Noah’s ark proportions but by noon the ponchos were being put away and sun-screen was well in order. In typical Melbourne fashion, the weather changed suddenly and for the most part, we had a relatively dry day. Go figure! The downpour that greeted punters that arrived […]
