Molly Hatchet concert pictures ~ Bill O’Leary

A word from the photographer


MOLLY HATCHET here touring in support of the Flirtin’ With Disaster album for a little over 2 months when I first photographed them in 1979 opening for the OUTLAWS at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Playing this iconic venue was a gigantic achievement and both Florida bands were up for the challenge.

Three guitar players rocking

I had listened to their albums quite a lot prior to this show and could not wait to see them live, they quickly became one of my favorite southern rock bands. How could you beat three guitar players rocking right in your face, with lead vocalist Danny Joe Brown leading the charge. Hell yea.

“Beatin’ The Odds”

After the enormous success of the “Flirtin’ With Disaster” album, the band started headlining shows on their own. I photographed them once again on the “Beatin’ The Odds” tour, this time at the Capitol Theater in Passaic, New Jersey. They seemed even more solid and tight in their playing this time around.

At this time in their career, Danny Joe Brown had left to form a solo band, replaced by new vocalist Jimmy Farrar. Live, they did not miss a beat and were rocking harder than ever. Hard to believe that only one member of the original band, Steve Holland is still alive and kicking.
