Last Night's Report

So you wanna be a rock & roll photographer? Just listen now to what I say. Just get a camera, take some time, and get a photo pass to last night's Sweetheart Of The Rodeo 50th anniversary tour in Durham, NC. Then you go downtown, where Roger McGuinn, Chris Hilliman, Marty Stuart and company will not (and did not) let you down. Sweetheart may have not hit the charts, but on this night, it was more than alright.

Then you drive home to Charlotte, NC, edit photos, sleep a few hours, and then photograph SafeAlliance's annual breakfast, and give tours of your show at Spirit Square, and sell some plasticware. Maybe you are a little insane. So here's a reminder of last night's show, and the public acclaim, so that you won't forget who you are. La la la la, la la la la, and see you on the road.

PS, this show was astoundingly good. Grown men and women wept and smiled, and all was beautiful.

The Last Few Days

Thursday, photos of the Care Ring luncheon, WFAE Eats event, and Art Of Fashion event at Neiman Marcus. Friday, photos of the BRAKES gala, which ended at midnight. Seven hours later, I started a 18-hour, 5 event day, including two Hamilton events with the Blumenthal, International House gala, one golf tournament, and one birthday event. Anyone out there going to be in Durham on Monday night? See you there, and see you on the road.

A Passing Song In A Passing Room

Standing in a busy hotel lobby yesterday, looking at the rains of Hurricane Michael, when this song came on the lobby's PA system. Lift me to your place in the clouds, more soon, and see you on the road.

StudioEast (Arthur Smith Studios) Is Closing

Hello all-

I wanted to pass along the sad news that Arthur Smith Studios, more recently StudioEast, is closing after 55 years in business. The studio portion will go elsewhere, while the building is now owned by a law firm. While the building itself will thankfully still exist, it is sad to see the end of a place where so many famous people worked and recorded. This includes several songs featured in There Was A Time, including "Abba" by the Paragons, "Catch A Ride" by the Grifs, "Go Way Girl" by the Damascans, the Young Ages, and many, many more.

May the music and the people that created there live forever.
