Just ran across this old pic of me with horror metal icon Wednesday 13 at a Rob Zombie show in Tampa, Florida. I won’t bore you with the details, but Wednesday and I grew up in the same small area of North Carolina and have mutual friends in the music business. This isn’t my first encounter with Mr. 13; I was introduced to him by our friend Jamie Hoover at his studio in Charlotte many years ago. Wednesday 13 has a very successful career spanning his bands Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 and Murderdolls.
One of the really cool things about my job is getting to meet some interesting people. Some are also nice, such as is the case with Alice Cooper. I’ve worked with him several times over the years and he is an extremely cool guy. Always friendly with his fans, fun and very patience with all the photo requests and autographs. He even puts up with me jumping in for a photo. I just wish all of my clients were as nice. Yes, I’m talking to you Micky Dolenz.
A backstage image I captured of Here Come The Mummies at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater, Florida recently appeared in the entertainment industry / venue publication Pollstar. My pic is top, left-hand corner. My name is spelled incorrectly but I’m used to that. As least I GOT a photo credit this time!
