Pat Travers Band concert pictures ~ Bill O’Leary

A word from the photographer  


Another of my all-time favorite guitar players, PAT TRAVERS was on his “Crash and Burn” tour here in 1980. I photographed them at the Palladium Theater in lower Manhattan. They were riding a wave of success with the radio hit “Snortin’ Whiskey” from the latest album, as well as the hit cover song, “Boom Boom (Out go the Lights)” from their previous live album “Live! Go for What You Know”. I was ecstatic to see a guitar god I had been listening to for the past 4 years or so.

Home at the old Palladium Theater

The band was amazing with original bassist Mars Cowling, drummer Tommy Aldridge and second guitarist Pat Thrall seen here. An amazing guitar player in his own right, this tour would be his last with THE PAT TRAVERS BAND. With five albums of material to pull from, the band ripped thru all the favorites, “Hooked on Music”, “Life in London” and a version of “Born Under A Bad Sign”. A great show at the old Palladium Theater, fast becoming a home base for me shooting concerts in New York City.
