Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all of you out there.. I hope that you have a great 2008. Actually, I hope I have a better one, but, I hope you have a great one as well. By the way, do I look as mushy as I think I do in this photo?

Nice walk on Chorleywood Common

I went for a nice quick walk with my wife around the beautiful Chorleywood Common, in Hertfordshire, UK. Obviously, I took a camera with me. Then for some reason, Lyn decided to let me take a quick shot of her, which is unusual.

Mind you, she only let me take two shots of her as she intimated.

Did she mean something else?

Led Zeppelin and Sam Moore at O2

This was probably the biggest reunion of all time. I met up with Sam Moore and Joyce his wife at the hotel early evening. We were then picked up and taken over to North Greenwich to the O2. I dont think I have seen as many celebes in one place before. It was mad. I then met up with my mate Martin Klip and we attempted to get a coffe somewhere. Funnily enough, every Starbucks we walked into was closing or closed, all very odd.. Anyway, we found a haven in Wasabi a Japanese resturant. We then headed backstage dressing rooms and met up wth Joyce and Sam Moore. After a while I went into the arena to watch the mighty Led Zeppelin. They were truly amazing.. Again, I couldnt believe how many celebes I saw and knew as I walked down to the front of the stage. The band were brilliant and kashmire was exceptional, mind you it was all great. I then headed back over to the Indigo venue to shoot Sam Moore, Ben E King, Percy Sledge and Paul Rogers.

Shane MacGowan 50th Birthday Party

The day started with me shooting the stills on a video shoot in the East End of London. It was all very civilized and well organized and for a change really nice people all round. I then headed to North London to the now legendary Boogaloo. There was to be a party for my mate Shane MacGowan. He will be 50 on Christmas Day. As the Pogues are now on the road, this was the only real chance for Shane to have loads of friends in one place for a party. There was quite a turn out. The Arctic Monkeys, The Horrors, Madness, Tim Burgess, Kevin Rowland (Dexy's Midnight Runners) The Pogues, BP Fallon and a few others as well. Kate Moss was supposed to be there as well, but, she missed her flight back from New York. So, that was a shame as she and Shane are good friends. So, thanks to Gerry O'Boyle it was another great night at the Boogaloo...

Squeeze Live in London

The last time I shot Squeeze was, I think about 1979.. I need to check that. Anyway, tonight they were playing to a sold out crowd at Hammersmith Odeon, or as its now known Carling Apollo, Hammersmith, London.
