International Swingers at Studio 606 ~ Music Photography Los Angeles ~

What an experience!  I had the opportunity to photograph The International Swingers when they recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 recently.  The mixing board has it’s own amazing story which you can check here soundcitymovie.com.  Not knowing what to expect had me a little apprehensive and nervous and definitely anxious.  But the band, consisting of Clem Burke, Glen Matlock, James Stevenson and Gary Twinn could not have been easier to work with at all.  They were open and approachable and truly just fun.  I mean, I was in their faces all day and they could do what they had to do and well, not hold it against me if I was a nuisance.  It was my first time documenting during a recording or even seeing the process for that matter.  It was quite impressive and done old school on tape and produced by Brett Gurewitz which will then be released on–wait for it–a 45! I was truly impressed by the process and all those who are truly amazing in their fields.  Thanks for letting me be a part and so happy for the new friendships and experience.  There is an amazing relationship between photographers and musicians and this was exactly that.

International Swingers ~ Los Angeles Music Photography ~

The International Swingers include Clem Burke of Blondie, Glen Matlock of The Sex Pistols, James Stevenson of The Cult and Gary Twinn of Twenty Flight Rockers.  They played new songs and some of their classics to a full and happy house at Redballs Rock and Roll Pizza.  It’s great to see people doing just what they love and do best.

A great time was had by all at DNA Lounge’s Silicon Valley Rocks event to help bring music and keep it in schools so that kids may rock on for years to come.  I was happy to share in the music and fun with such a great group of people.

The Sunset Strip Music Fest ~Los Angeles Music Photographer~

Went with a friend last night and it was just a good time.  I was expecting Chris Cornell and got Ozzy but I have to say oddly he is quite the adorable rocker.  The fire hose of soap suds made me laugh the hardest I have in probably 5 years!  But a great time to be sure.  Great crowd and only wish I’d taken more pics of the spectators. Some of the best experiences in life are those most unexpected.
