Poe flew the coop, but his raven remains

I’m in Charlottesville, Virginia for Thanksgiving with relatives. My cousin Rick took me for a nighttime walk around the grounds of the University of Virginia, and I was feeling very Jeffersonian, what with the architecture and all, only to find this scene through the window of an old dormitory room. It seems that Edgar Allen […]

Happy Birthday Billy Jones

Today would have been Billy’s 61st birthday. The legendary Outlaws guitarist is shown here on the left with friend and driver Five-O, aka Gene Key. I took this in October 1975. The Outlaws were driving north on the Pacific Coast Highway traveling from San Diego to Los Angeles when Five-O pulled over so we could […]

On the road with the famous Mike Graham

I’m headed to Minnesota today with the Outlaws/Blackhawk.  The snow on the ground is whiter than our driver’s beard, but not as deep. Mike seems to be a good driver and a very nice guy. I’ve shown him here behind the wheel of the Pioneer Prevost tour bus somewhere between Cedar Rapids and Minneapolis.

At the many concerts I’ve attended, I often turned around and found someone of interest in the crowd to shoot. These are just some anonymous people who caught my eye. I spotted this enthusiastic gal […]

1975 Jewfro

Here I am, backstage at the Santa Monica Civic Center in October, 1975, inventing the classic facebook selfie. I can believe that my hair was that long. It’s hard to believe I was ever that thin. Those were the days.

Ready for some barbecue?

When I last posted a picture from the Lexington Barbecue, my son had just graduated from high school, and it was too hot to even think about taking a picture of an open fire pit. In North Carolina, elections and barbecue go together. There’s no better venue for glad handing and politicking than a good […]
