Last night I was afforded the opportunity to photograph a rock legend. Iggy Pop, along with the Stooges, played a sold-out tribute show for the late Ron Asheton, the Stooges' original guitarist. It was a homecoming for Iggy, as the original group formed in Ann Arbor in 1967.
This job has allowed me to witness and photograph some amazing acts, performers and musicians. And I like to believe I've seen some great rock shows during my more active concert going days. But it wasn't until last night that I ever experienced a real ROCK show. The venue, the crowd, the energy and most definitely the performance combined and it was the real deal.
