This is the way I remember it… One day, when I was working in Los Angeles, I was asked to shoot a group. They promised a big surprise. I was told to be at the Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Blvd the next day. Very mysterious! A couple of other photographers were waiting there too, when

Back in 1981, I was looking for speakers at the RAF in Hilversum. I worked in Hilversum a lot, since the Dutch studios were mostly there back then, and the tv program TopPop was taped there. So I walk into this beautiful store, with stereo equipment everywhere, and different departments for different music, and a

Tom Waits: Too Cool to Tour

In 1975 Dutch journalist Constant Meijers slept on my couch in LA for six weeks. He used me as his photographer for his magazine OOR. We did interviews, sound-checks, concerts, parties, and more in those intense six weeks. The Dutch had a knack for finding great American acts before they made it big on their

In April 1977 on a sunny spring day, some music journalists and myself were invited to join Fleetwood Mac on a boat touring the harbor in Rotterdam.

                                                      A couple of years after I had moved to Holland, I heard through the grapevine that The Police were going to be in Amsterdam for a performance on Rock Planet. I’d heard great

While sifting through my slides and negatives to scan for my website, I stumbled upon my negatives of a Pink Floyd concert taken some forty years ago. I was amazed to see them and rather happy with some of the pictures. I don’t recall much of the concert, except for the colossal cloud of smoke expelled from

In 1975, I was at The Roxy in Los Angeles seeing the Tubes. They had an unusual stage show and a lot of celebrities were in the crowd to see it. Amongst them were Ringo Starr and his drinking buddy Harry Nilsson. After the show, the crowd shuffled through the exit while the VIPs were whisked
