Wow! This year has gone by REALLY fast. This was really hard to decde what were my favorite photos of 2012. I had the opportunity to cross off 7 bands of ye old bucket list and that's pretty awesome. So choosing just 10 was a really difficult task. But with that being said, here are my 10 favorites from 2012.
(Xander's Note: I couldn't do it. I had to break the rules and go to 22.)
Oh yeah and before I forget...
1. What was your favorite show to shoot for Buzznet this year?
Ugh! There were so many and most of them were bucket list bands. I would have to say it's a three way tie between Dave Matthews Band, Slipknot (I was one of 2 photogs in the pit) and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Hon mention would go to Jane's Addiction.
2. Any great moments you can share?
Sharing the pit with only metal photgs "Iron Mike" Savioa and Chad Lee during Slipknot's set at Mayhem in Auburn, WA.
3. What is your favorite photo and why from this year?
Too many to choose from, lol come back to me on that.
4. What band's live set were you surprised by this year?
Three way tie between, RHCP, Jane's Addiction and Slipknot.
5. Who are you dying to shoot in 2013?
Muse, Soundgarden, Flogging Molly (was approved this year but thanks to nasty weather it didn't happen) and maybe I will get lucky and get mainstage for Sasquatch this year (hopefully 4th time is a charm ;-/)
