Rob Zombie Great American Nightmare Tour
I recently covered the Rob Zombie Great American Nightmare shows for Rock N Roll Industries Magazine. This show was the largest I have ever covered. An air plane hanger filled with shoulder to shoulder people. For being such a large show I was very pleased to be one of the few to have shot from the stage for nearly every band except for Rob Zombie himself. To be able to meet some of these headliners was also amazing. Singers such as Bert McCracken of the Used has received my respect for coming to many of the following shows.
Among many of the interesting moments and meetings was Andy Dick, it was unexpected to see him and it wasn't my first time. The first time he hipped my friends shirt in order to take her tit out and suck it in the middle of a gay bar in Palm Springs. This time was not much different when he licked a guys tit, though I will admit that he was dressed as a nurse. With the likes of many of the larger artists it was more on the lines of business as usual with Andrew W.K and Rob Zombie. For them it was in and out.
There was strong support by
One of the surprises I had was the varying degree of photographers at the show. Two or three professionals, a couple high armatures but mostly low level. Shooting bands such as Rob Zombie with point and shoot cameras. Everybody has a start but with many shows there are things not possible.
I also find it important for people to know their equipment no mater how much is spent.
I will admit though that the downside of big shows are drinks starting at $11. But over all I have taken the best shots of any show as me being a photographer.
