I met Dewey and Gerry and the rest of the "America" band members in 1990 when they came to Enid, Okla. to do a show. I was invited to "shoot" the concert and subsequently became close friends.
Since that chance meeting I have shot more than fifty of their shows from Calif. to Ohio and Neb. to Jackson, Miss. (nice to have a plane). I found that although each show format is basically the same, it has it's own separate magic for that particular show. I never get tired of watching them perform and always get great shots at every concert.
I've met their wives, girlfriends, kids, parents and friends and have found they surround themselves with the same kind of great people that each of them are themselves.
I started thier first online chat room on AOL and subsuquently built thier first official website later on. (I am no longer involved in thier web pages).
Because of them, I have met and photographed many other groups and entertainers.
