Firstly, Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful time over the Christmas and New Year break (that's if you had a break!).
I went to see "Mick Underwood's Glory Road" back in November and took a few shots which I've posted on my Flickr Photostream. Anyone that knows me will be well aware that I'm a big fan of 70's and 80's rock music with Gillan being one of the first bands I ever saw live. Mick Underwood was the powerhouse drummer in Gillan and Glory Road play a lot of the old Gillan classics. Unsurprisingly this was my cup of tea and a gig I really enjoyed. The tracks have really stood the test of time and I would even say matured like a fine wine (or cheese....is there a bit of a food and drink thing going on?).
I haven't done much live music photography in the past but I was fairly pleased with the results although the need for a faster lens soon became apparent. So 2 of my New Year's resolutions are to take more gig photos and get a faster lens!
Here's to a great 2014.......
