A word from the photographer
ON THIS NIGHT: Jeff Beck
On this night I photographed one of my all time favorite guitar players, Jeff Beck. He was on tour supporting his album “There And Back”, the last of a trilogy of albums I consider his classic rock fusion period including “Blow By Blow” and “Wired”. It was a cool October night, but if you were a guitar fan, it was about to heat up. The opening track off “There And Back”, Star Cycle started the show off with some blazing guitar licks.
In the zone
I very quickly was in the “zone” thru my viewfinder, hopefully getting some memorable images of this iconic guitar player. Usually knowing all the music, helps in capturing the key moments, on the other hand I sometimes find myself not shooting and enjoying the performance and the music. Often when you are in the “zone”, the sound seems to go away. I always look for a balance between concentrating on my shooting and enjoying the show as well.
The unique Jeff Beck
Jeff Beck was simply amazing this night, one of the best guitar players I have had the privilege of seeing, let alone photographing. He is very unique in that any note he plays, or sound he makes thru his guitar seems to naturally and purposely fit the song exactly. His band this night also included one of the best rock drummers out there, Simon Phillips. Bassist Mo Foster, an accomplished session musician was outstanding as well.
Over too quick
Another fantastic night in the life of a concert photographer. I did not shoot as many images as I would have liked to, but the joy of seeing Jeff Beck in person was worth it in the end. As seen here, I cannot help but be satisfied with the images I captured. There is an old saying, “time flies when you are having fun”, this particular night that was the case for sure.
