WANTED: Shots that I missed

  1. Anybody get a good "curtain call" shot from the audience? The guys lined up perfectly, but there was no way I could make it to the middle of the floor for the shot.
  2. I missed all of Deiggj band's sets! :-( I was in Helsinki for Hensley-on-the-Rocks on Thursday, and on an airplane back to the U.S. Sunday night. :-(
  3. Shots of Lee Kerslake from the VIP seats (bleachers) -- I was so paranoid of the "photo pit" closing up on me that I forgot to…

Remembering Herluf Hermansen

Lively Legends

Back in the U.S.A from Salo, sleep-deprived and jet-lagged but exhilarated - what a weekend! I have a HUGE amount of pictures to sort through and process, but here are three shots that give an idea of the main event venue. Attendance was excellent -- the main event was heavily promoted locally as "Uriah Heep Legends Live" and drew a large crowd outside of the "heepvention" attendees. (NEWSFLASH: Tapio just reported that it was a sold-out show, 1000 tickets!)

Easy Livin' in Salo 2009: Arrival Photos

Lee Kerslake and Paul Newton have arrived in Salo. Ken Hensley, on the other hand, is leaving Salo for the night to perform Past, Present & Future in Helsinki.

John Lawton is arriving on Friday.

I'm shooting Ken Hensley's Helsinki show tonight, which means I won't have any shots from the opening meet-and-greet celebration of Easy Livin' in Salo. Hopefully other attendees will fill the gap for me.…
