Mick Rock’s photo of David Bowie at City Winery

Legendary rock photographers Mick Rock and Henry Diltz visited City Winery in DC recently to tell the stories behind some of their legendary images during their “Behind The Lens” tour. Presented by Morrison Hotel, and hosted in DC’s beautiful City Winery on October 9, 2019, both Mick Rock and Henry Diltz were an absolute pleasure to meet. Their ground-breaking rock images changed the world of rock photography forever. The two also stayed after for a meet-and-greet to hand-sign some of their most iconic photographic prints.

Ty Segall performing at Ottobar in Baltimore, Maryland

For this Hazy Eye Music Media “Photo Flashback” post we’ll be taking a trip down memory lane with Ty Segall & White Fence. As a rule, I never miss an opportunity to catch a performance by the prolific garage rocker and rock & roll slave, Ty Segall. On this go around he paid a visit to Ottobar in Baltimore, MD on February 25, 2019 with fellow indie rocker and American singer-songwriter Tim Presley (aka White Fence). The venue wreaked of beer and stale cigarette smoke for this gig (I mean more so than usual). The band were drinking beer, the crew were drinking, and a large majority of the crowd were joining along.

Le Butcherettes performing at MECU Pavilion

Le Butcherettes are currently out on a massive summer tour with Devil Makes Three, Flogging Molly, and Social Distortion. The band is extensively touring North American in support of their 4th studio album, bi/MENTAL. Le Butcherettes is a fearless musical force lead by founding member and singer/guitarist/keyboardist Teri Gender Bender. Of course, I was there in the photo pit once again rocking out and taking pictures. As always, Le Butcherettes kicked ass and proved that they are still progressing and are not to be overlooked.

Greg Graffin of Bad Religion performing at The Fillmore Silver Spring

Classic American punk rockers Bad Religion stopped at The Fillmore Silver Spring recently, and I was the lone concert photographer rocking out in the photo pit. I was excited to see Bad Religion for the first time, and happy their performance was at a nice venue close to home. The band hit the stage at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD to a tightly packed house and proved that punk is certainly not dead. They very simply kicked ass and sounded fantastic!
