The Jam’s LA Debut, Whisky, October 7, 1977. A similar photo of mine was used by their record company, Mercury Records. They paid for editorial, but used in ads. I was paid $30 but should have been paid $300 for commercial usage. So the next time you all think I’m so rich and famous, STFU! THIS happened to me ALL the time. Still does.
And if you think it’s so easy to recover money, STFU and get educated. The rock and publishing world is rough and tough. Much more than I signed up for.
I merely wanted to document a cultural revolution. I knew art history. I knew music history. I knew it had to be documented.
I didn’t know I’d sacrifice my life to it. But hey, some cool memories and GREAT photos. Now go buy a print or more or donate or do something to help! Cos this is killing me. And when I die or become incapacitated, this ALL ENDS. Think about that.
What HAVE YOU done to bring joy to people and create history? You can help me.
Just don’t give me a hard time, cos it’s just one more nail in my coffin. Deal.

Printing process: Lightjet professional prints. Kodak archival paper and inks. This process is the most light-fast, long lasting. Superior results to any silver gelatin or c-prints. After labs scratched and lost most valued negs, and both color and black and white were fugly, I am only offering museum quality prints from top professional labs.
Color and Black/White are usually printed on Lustre paper, which has gorgeous color but not much sheen. Metallic paper is great for some color, onstage photos. Depends upon image.
