Well here I am, day 1 off NAMM 2017 here in Anaheim, CA. I survived walking around all day, running to the Coffin Case booth to see and talk to David Ellefson of Megadeth and the gals in Dollskin. David does manage the girls now. Did a quick Instagram video to help promote their show tomorrow here at the Anaheim GardenWalk. Where they will be playing with Buckcherry, Vital Noise, Hillbilly Herald, Like a Storm.
Yesterday I got here and didn't make it into the convention center but i did make it out to the "A Farwell to King" Rush all star jam that happened at The Yost. Ran into good friends Jason Bittner (Shadows Fall / Flotsam and Jetsam) and saw Phil Demmel of Machine Head. Talked tohim some about the new album they are working on, family and life in general.
Got some good shots of some musicians i normally don't get to see play. Photos will be up, just got to do some in between and get them up and ready. Its going to be a busy week. Tonight i am photographing Randy Rhoads Remembered that will have a whole slew of musicians playing. Then I after walking around NAMM tomorrow, Friday, i am shooting the NAMM Jam show with Buckcherry, Like A Storm, Dollskin, Hillbilly Herald, Vital Noise that is produced by Delve Texas and be held at the Anaheim Gardenwalk. Then on Saturday I am attending the Schecter Namm Jam / party where Zakk Sabbath is playing with Kings X and Kyng at The Grove in Anaheim, CA
