Concerts on parade

Got back from Dixon in time to rush over to River Music Experience for the grand opening of "Out Loud and In Print," a new exhibit of concert photography By John Greenwood of the D/A and John Schultz of the QCT.

I've worked with John G. for 20 years, and have know John S. for about as long. They're both great guys, both love music and both have shot countless concerts the last 25-30 years. The 40 or so shots in the exhibit are a best of the best collection.

Worth seeing, so stop by if you get a chance; exhibit's in the lobby. If you do go, let me know which photo you like best.

I walked the wall several times, and finally decided my favorite is John G.'s shot of Stevie Ray Vaughn at the Col Oct. 4, 1985. During the ceremonies, he said that was his favorite, too. John S. hesitated and hemmed and hawed a bit before saying the one of his he likes best is BB King at the Adler Nov. 28, 2000.

The exhibit's a nice addition to RME, strongly local, high-quality; kind of stuff that will strengthen the place.

Thanks for the heads-up, John. And a SRV (at the Col) favorite to boot!

A crowd shot may have shown me, standing at the foot of the stage, entranced, and probably drooling uncontrollably from both sides of my mouth. What a show, that night. I was in awe.

Anxious to see the exhibit.
