Way back in 1982, fresh out of high school, I brought my Nikkormat to suburban Chicago bar Haymakers to see the brilliant soul/funk/psychedelic hitmaker, Sly Stone. Notorious for not showing up to gigs, fortunately he made it to the show that night, and I shot a couple rolls of Kodacolor, beginning my music photography career. He’ll be back in Chicago next month.
Here’s my most recent live music shot; Monotonix at the Empty Bottle, 3/28/08. Haggai Fershtman pictured.
