Papa Roach - That Kiss - Brixton

I've had literally FOUR emails asking if I managed to snap a shot of the "embrace" between Papa Roach front man, Jacoby Shaddix and guitar god Jerry Horton.. The guys have been playing together for years, so hell, why not have some man love on stage. Here's that shot for all you people that just can't get enough, or, wanted to be either one of Jerry or Jacoby for that moment...

Papa Roach - A Close Band

A blisteringly good performance by the guys, Papa Roach has been making ear drums bleed since they decided to enter a school talent competition with a version of Jimi Hendrix' Fire... They didn't win... Later that year, Trombone became guitar (Jerry) and Jacoby met his wife, then girlfriend and fan.

Lenny Kravitz - Brixton Academy 2009

Lenny Kravitz, What can I say... Well, how about *please can we have some nice lighting next time?* First song "Hello, I've turned the SUN on and placed it on Lenny's face" and second song (only two tracks, folks) was "Let's make him look sick.. hmmm...GREEN!" - Regardless, the lad performed well, he drives the women nuts and isn't half bad on the old GEE TAR! - He'd make it insomuch as my "So ya wanna be a rock star" post is concerned... Are You Gonna Go My Way is still my fave Lenny album, easily... Reminds me of when I first really met my mate Tom... We were down the coast, driving around in his mother's red car listening to it at full tilt... good timesLenny Kravitz Lenny Kravitz - Brixton 2009

Hilltop Hoods - Islington Academy 2009

I popped along to the Islington Academy to see Hilltop Hoods play... They totally rocked it - The crowd were manic (As the photos show!) the lighting, as it seems was a theme for the evening, was 'orrible! This be a little bit of video what comes from me pressing the wrong buttons...

Some photos - Why I went there! Crowded! Hilltop Hoods - Islington Academy Salute or Heil? Hilltop Hoods - Islington Academy Crooner! Hilltop Hoods - Islington Academy Top shot... Hilltop Hoods - Islington Academy

I did the best I could (did I?) with the light I had... Hilltop hoods are an infectious blend of sledge hammer and velvet - go buy their latest cd State of the Art
