Have you ever considered taking the test and getting a car?
Just thought I'd ask.

Quote: At Hammerfest this weekend, I only saw the whole set of one band, but photographed over 40. That was Satyricon, by the way. They were excellent!
Still haven't made it to Hammerfest My wife has to work on a stall at Crufts which is always the same weekend. We make up for it by going to Hard Rock Hell in December which, I'm sure you know, is held at the same venue in Prestatyn. Any plans to do photography there?
Last December was crazy. Out here in rural Lincolnshire my workplace closed down for the week 'cause of the snow, but somehow, with a bit of grit and determination, we dug the car out and drove to North Wales!! Now that's dedication!
I don't get online as much through the day now, but I'm just about keeping up with this Rock/beer/photography thread...

I'm Type 1 Diabetic Keith, and although that doesn't stop me driving, it does add around an extra £1000 a year to car insurance, (on top of the £3000 they want because I'm a fella) so I've never been able to afford it.

Maybe, last year it clashed with the All Tomorrows Parties festival at Butlins in Minehead. Neurosis were playing that, so I couldn't bring myself to miss it.
It's funny you should mention what this thread ahas become in that order. I've bare;y said a peep about photography
I talked about a book on an era of rock, I have a friend " Paul Coerten" who produced a book called "Golden years " sub title" rock 70-80" Published by Apach in Belgium, It's a 250 page 25cmx31cm book totally in b/w , it features 1 double page spread on each of the top rock groups of the era the stones,animals ,blondie,bowie to name but a few, he told me it does well, when he gave me a signed copy, (but he would say that wouldn't he)
He is now an advertising photographer in Brussels ,He speaks English so if you are interested, if you yahoo search Paul coerten the first reference is the book in question. I left Belgium 10 years ago but he will still remember me so don't hesitate to contact him just mention my name , Phillip McCordall.
Is this the book Phillip?.
I might have to see if I can have a look at one of those.
The reason I mention before that I've been told I should do a book, is because there seem to be none about as a guide to shooting music/action in low light.
Like I said, I'm quite cynical about whether something like that would sell. I suppose the only way to find out would be to go ahead and do it!
Yes that's the one
Rock/beer/photography... it pretty much sums up my life! It's great you get to combine them, sometimes all three of them!
Will you be at any of the Children Of Bodom/Amon Amarth gigs in April? Either in the audience or in a working capacity? We'll be at the Rock City gig. New Bodom album is great, and there's a new Amon Amarth out in the next few days. Bound to be excellent too...
I'll be covering a small Industrial Music festival thing held at the Corporation that weekend, so unfortunately not.
I'm moving house the next month, so I've had to cut back on the amount of travel I do until the moves complete so I don't bankrupt myself
I won't rub it in too much about how excellent the night will be then!
Must have a chat with you at BOA. My wife is crazy now that W.A.S.P. are headlining the Friday. BOA has always felt such a personal festival to us being relatively local, and now her favourite band is there... I'll never hear the end of it...
Shame Dream Theater aren't playing too. I can't make any of their July dates...
Haha, well if you do rub it in, I'll be able to return the favour after seeing DT at High Voltage
Damn you! Really wanted to go to High Voltage this year, espec as Judas Priest are doing their farewell tour, but I've signed up to do a charity Three Peak Challenge so I'll be up in't hills on the Friday, doing the challenge Saturday, and will be far too knackered to get to London on Sunday!Any thoughts on the new as-yet-unannounced DT drummer? I bet Mike will have returned... maybe...
OK, getting this thread back on topic: If you could photograph your favourite beer at any gig in the world, which beer and gig would it be?? Only kidding...
If money was no object, what photographic kit would you buy? Could be a single item, or a "setup"...
Sticking with that theme, what non-photographic item would you buy?
I suppose we'll wait and see about Portnoy's replacement. Maybe a new drummer may mean a new direction?
If money was no object, I'd purchase a 300mm f/2.8 of some description for festivals and arenas. The f/4 one I have is OK, but the extra stop would make a hell of a difference.
I'd also buy a new laptop. The one I'm using is down to only one functioning USB port, so a nice fast 12" replacement would be great. I've been looking at the Lenovo laptops actually. I could do with saving my pennies first though. I normally buy refurbished gear to save some money, but it seems refurbished ultraportables are like rocking horse poo at the moment.
Other than that, I'm quite happy with the kit I've amassed over the last few years, so I'm probably at the stage where I'd just replace whatever I break.
If money was no object, I'd probably buy a car (or at least the insurance for one). Nothing fancy though, just a small runaround would do me fine
Quote: Hehe, Paul, I'm a child of the 80s, so couldn't really comment on the 70s being a couple of months older than 30
LOl well I`m really not that old.
Looking back, my first aged 8
Bunked in with some mates on the saturday, we only lived around the corner. Returned home late stinking of leather, sweat, beer, lol you name it, spent the rest of the bank holiday grounded
Reminiscing so went and dug this up.
Headliners: Curved Air, The Faces, Ten years After
Weekend tickets: £2.00
Friday: £1.00. Saturday: £1.75. Sunday: £1.25 )
The festival, now known as the National Jazz, Blues, Folk and Blues Festival, goes ahead at Richfield Avenue, Reading and the top act is the mighty Ten Years After (shurely shome mishtake?).
The sun is blazing and police while away spare hours arresting nude swimmers in the Thames The line-up includes Johnny Otis, The Faces and Genesis. John Peel and Jerry Floyd are the comperes.
Do you prefer the big festivals or the smaller less known and less commercialised.
Quote: Do you prefer the big festivals or the smaller less known and less commercialised.
Hmm, it depends. Smaller festivals tend to have a better. more relaxed atmosphere... but at large festivals like Glastonbury the feeling of of a job well done afterwards is worth all the hassle.
Many of the smaller festivals tend to have the more interesting performers too.
My least favourite festival to work is the V weekend, in fact I hate it so much, I've refused it the past couple of years.
