Ticket Stubs

Hit Counter

This was one of the first times I shot concert photos. My girlfriend Joanna, my friend John C., and I went to visit Johns girlfriend at Marietta College in Ohio. She had tickets to the Home Coming show. This was a small gym, like a high school. Before the show we were hanging down front so I could get some photos as they came out. Then I noticed some guy with a briefcase that had concert stickers all over it.  He looked like he was part of the band talking to "stage" people .So when he took off and went down this small hallway from behind the stage. I followed him .There were other "roadies" hanging around but no one said anything to me. He turned the corner with me right behind him and there they were. It was the locker room and the whole band was sitting there listening to the World Series. I just started shooting. At one point Greg said "hey man your not suppose to be snappin that thing back here". I just kept shooting. It turned out that the guy with the briefcase was coming to get them for the show. When I took the photo of Duane taking
out his guitar, he said "Lets do this thing".
Man !!! very cool experience for a 19 year old Rock & Roller.
I was hooked shooting concert photos.

Joanna and BR way back then----   

"The gentleman who you followed down that hallway was road manager
Willie Perkins. He was the only one who ever carried that stickered tour
briefcase you saw. That was the original tour briefcase used from '69
when Twiggs Lyndon was the road manager
."
