What Are Your The Best Concerts You've Photographed? Part T
Jim Colburn, Photo Editor, Photographer
McAllen | TX | USA | Posted: 10:10 AM on 09.09.08
->> "My all time favorites are Lisa Minnelli, Elvis Presley, Dizzy Gillespie, Elton John and George Clinton."

Arron Copeland was sublime, Tony Bennett was great and Rudy Vallee was hillarious but my favs would be the Sex Pistiols, the Ramones, Thin Lizzy and...

Spinal Tap (at CBGBs).

->> I think I'm going to agree with Jeff and Adam(from round 1 of the thread) and say NIN.

Linkin Park at Projekt Revolution in Cleveland last summer was a good one.

Both Rock on the Ranges have been fun except for the 9000 photogs in the pit and only about 6 of them having a non p&s cameras or camera phones.

->> Tom Petty...

While most artists restrict you after three songs or maybe a song or maybe the first 30 seconds of the first three songs, Petty let the photographers shoot every single song of his concert including the encore back at Summerfest in Milwaukee in 2005.

Not only was the concert great, but I had to slow down my shooting so I did not fill up all my cards. I've never seen this before from such a big name.

->> wow. weird. several folks said tom petty. he was the WORST artist I ever had the displeasure to shoot in 35 years. he limited the media to the sound board at the concert I shot. and if my good friend and competitor at that time (now my boss) scott sharpe had not loaned me a 400mm lens combined with my extender I wouldn't have made the almost full frame body shots of petty. all the other GWC's with their 50mm and 180mm lens were hosed. I have since heard that was a period petty hated the media and this was our "punishment". but then again he went into a serious tailspin after that album which he has never critically recovered from. (meaning come on he's never made another hit since then) he has since relied on the hits from the past. and maybe he realized being an ass to the media was counter productive. but I am so glad he's changed his ways. I love his older stuff.

3 songs that felt like 3 months. I was standing in front of the guitarist's amps and coulnt hear myself think. Also, I was almost spat on by the bass player Flea.

It was AWESOME!

Slipknot stopped in St. Louis for Metal Mayhem and they were SO INTENSE. They wear masks for all their shows and it makes it one "hell" of an experience....no pun intended!

->> Honeyboy Edwards, in his room at the Chesire Motor Inn hotel in Atlanta, where he was staying while playing a couple of dates in town in 2000. It was just the two of us in the room; I was there to do his portrait, and while I was shooting he was playing his guitar and singing, and talking about his days of hanging out in Mississippi with Robert Johnson, including the night Johnson died. After we finished the pictures, we went to Fat Matt's Rib Shack (a local blues and BBQ place) and got a bunch of ribs. He walked over to the wall and looked at the photos of all the old blues greats, and started naming off all his old friends.

Mississippi Delta bluesman Mr. Johnnie Billington, at the River Mount Lounge in Clarksdale, Mississippi, in 1992.

Another Mississippi Delta bluesman, Lonnie Pitchford, and some of his local musician friends, in somebody's backyard in Pickens, Mississippi in 1995, after shooting his portrait there. I had recently started playing guitar and, along with shooting pictures, got to sit in and play for a few hours.

Otha Turner's Labor Day goat barbecue and picnic in Gravel Springs, Mississippi in 2001, with Otha Turner on the fife, and other music by members of the North Mississippi Allstars, the Burnsides, and other local musicians; one of the most incredible musical events I've ever been to.

Also, standing behind the speakers on stage with REM at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta back in the mid 80's was fun.

Palm Desert | CA | USA | Posted: 5:42 PM on 09.10.08
->> In April, 2008, I photographed Roger Waters from Pink Floyd. Talk about an incredible show! This group really knows how to create eye candy for the audience. If you ever get a chance to see a Pink Floyd concert, DO NOT pass it up. The best part was when Roger introduced this giant, two-story-tall, inflatable pig. It was supposed to cruise over the crowd, pop and drop small ballots supporting Obama for Prez. Before the pig could drop the ballots, the giant pig suddenly started to drift east. Roger Waters said to the crowd, "There goes my pig." The tether holding the pig came loose and the pig disappeared into the night sky. The promoter offered $10,000 for the return of the pig. Two days later, two separate groups of people found the remains of the pig and claimed the prize. They split the ten grand and received four free lifetime passes each to all future Coachella Valley Music & Arts festivals.

As many of you know, "Coachella" is known for its alternative music but has been bringing in large acts too. I've photographed lots and lots of bands, (too many to list) but one that sticks out in my mind was a super crowd favorite: Gogol Bordello. Those guys had so much fun with the audience. I thought they were gonna start a riot!

->> 14 years of shooting punk rock shows has given me thousands of amazing memories...to name a few:

My first show that I photographed: Ten Yard Fight during the Back On Track tour (1997 or 8 I think) using a Yashica MG-1...not one shot came our properly exposed...

Circle Jerks at Montreal's legendary Foufounes Electriques (the Electric...uh...arse) and having a stagediver kick a flash off the top of my camera (accidentally, so I let him live...)

Good nod again to the Dropkick Murphys, this time opening for the Mighty Mighty Bosstones back in 1995, I knew they would eventually become great...

Springsteen...'cause he's Springsteen...

Portrait shoot with Ian MacKaye from Minor Threat and Fugazi...the most down to earth amazing person I have ever photographed...

The first time I saw/shot Sick Of It All, I have now seen them over 20 times and still get shivers up my spine...

Shooting Throwdown at the Warped Tour and ending up on my back in the photo pit with a fisheye pointed straight up below a crowd surfer being held up by security...

Anti-Flag playing at the Medley. It was the birthday of one of the guys in Against Me!, so as a treat, Anti-Flag came out to play their encore...completely in the buff. All of 'em. I have some interesting shots from that night I tells 'ya...

Shooting Murphy's Law for the first time and almost being kidnapped by singer Jimmy Gestapo who kept insisting that we party after our portrait shoot. After explaining numerous times that I don't drink, he gave me a hug, told me he loved me and walked away in search of a beer...

I never shot a show at CBGB's, but I was allowed to stroll around one day while they were closed and shoot some stills in there (
http://www.timsnowphotography.com under the CBGB'c heading on the right)

Anytime I got to shoot AFI before they became big. They are still super humble, and shooting them has always been amazing. Especially at 242 Main in Burlington back in 97 or so, the club held around 125 people, there must have been 300 in there...

I could go on for hours.

->> My favorite band to shoot is Project 86. They are an Orange County, CA band, and I usually only get to see them once a year or so when they come to NC for a show. I hung out with them on the road for a couple of days back in `99 and really enjoy reconnecting with them each time they do a show nearby.

Other favorites include Jethro Tull and pretty much any of the Lollapalooza's from the early 90's. My favorite was with Green Day, when the band called for the lawn seat ticket holders to rush down to the stage where there weren't too many gold circle ticket holders. The band was miffed because most of the people there (they were one of the early afternoon bands) were way out on the lawn area of the amphitheater. Needless to say this caused quite a problem for the security guys and the ticket handlers. They stopped the show and made the band get off the stage until everyone went back to where they were supposed to be. I made some nice pictures at that show.

Best show was an evening with Willie Nelson, Rusty Wier, Steve Fromholz, B.W. Stevenson where they all performed together and individually for four hours. This was early summer of 76.

Hate to do any concerts now, and haven't for some 20 years. First three songs: what a joke! Fist song has smoke that makes shooting impossible till the third song, then its blue lights. Ugh!!!

Doobie Brothers, Edger Winter and a 3 bill show with Pure Prairie League, New Riders of the Purple Sage and Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen. All the other student newspaper photographers wanted to party, so I got the assignment for every show. I had the run of the place, no restrictions whatsoever. Predictably, but unfortunately, the program department went broke putting on all those ambitious shows, there was a big inquisition and nothing on that scale ever happened again. Those were the days . . . .

The concert was a free and held on an intersection of Yonge Street in Toronto in front of a music store. The street was jammed with people from building to building must have been a few thousand people crammed in there.
People were climbing poles and trees.
I had a great vantage point on the top of the three story record store!
I was one of those rare concerts where you could shoot the entire concert, but the fans made all the pictures!
