A word from the photographer


I first heard and saw MAXX WARRIOR in early 1985 at a rock club in Wilmington, North Carolina, US. They immediately stood out to me as a band that were going places. That night, I happened to have my camera equipment and a portfolio of my previous work with me. I got in early before the doors opened, watched sound check, then introduced myself to the band and showed them my work. I asked if they would mind me shooting that nights show, they happily agreed. I got some amazing images that first night, not the usual in a small rock club, typically with weak stage lighting.

A second shoot

After the show I hung out with bassist Perry Richardson, a super nice guy. He asked if I could shoot another show coming up in a couple weeks down in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, US. I photographed them again, this time surprised lead guitarist Scott Atkins was not there with the band for some unknown reason, but I got more images that were amazing. This band with bassist Perry Richardson and vocalist CJ Snare eventually merged with another band White Heat with their guitarist Bill Leverty and drummer Michael Foster, becoming the hugely successful band FIREHOUSE later in the late 80’s. Perry Richardson would later leave FIREHOUSE to join STRYPER.
