Flashback to the mid 1990s, when nu-metal was on the rise, and KoRn was there at the forefront.  I’ve saw KoRn late last year, and during Mayhem this year, but had yet to shoot them.  This time however, I finally got my shot to play with what I saw was their amazing lighting…

Live Music – Amon Amarth @ The Paramount

While I may have missed the chance of shooting them at 2013’s Mayhem Festival, no better how bad the ice, snow, and wind was this winter night, I was not about to miss the mighty viking kings, Amon Amarth.  After a sold out show in New York City, they traveled a few minutes east to The Paramount in Huntington, New York.  I […]

So you know that hard rock band from the 90’s that has songs on the radio all the time?  Yeah, Stone Temple Pilots, that’s the one.  Well, they went and kicked out their  lead vocalist, who by all accounts, has caused them nothing but problems and fustraition over the last 10 years.  And you know […]


Live Music – The Bayside Tigers @ Canal Room
