This year, I have been grabbed by a singer, water poured on me by a guitarist, tonight I had this object that was on stage kicked towards me and fell on my foot...just a crazy experience and I'm loving it so far, lol

I would say SXSW 2011 with Odd Future. Crates of water bottles on stage, and the rapper pouring it on the photographers. Packed pit restricting movement and the odd future crew stage diving into the photo pit. crowding flipping out and throwing beer and clothing towards the stage.

I hate it when the pit is packed a lot of photographers, it cramps my style

I was sitting on the front/side of the stage (there were huge speakers in front of the stage and I'm sitting on the box those speakers are on) and the bass player of Ceremony literally just walks over me and climbs on top of me. One foot on my leg, other on my shoulder, then up on top of me. You can see it in this video starting at the 2:07 mark.

I'm shooting Sonic Youth at Voodoo Festival in NOLA in 2005. Thurston Moore is brilliant and totally drunk. He jumps down into the pit with us photograpers and wants to take a picture of the crowd. He tries to grab the camera of a photographer buddy of mine who happens to be the team photographer for the Hornets, and there is no way he is giving it up. They are wrestling for the camera for several seconds while security is totally shocked and confused. Eventually, Security has to pull Thurston back off the photographer and the camera.

Undeterred, Thurston goes to the edge of the pit and grabs a fans camera to take pictures of himself in front of the crowd, gives the camera back, and gets back on stage as if it was totally normal.

I've had singers pull me up on stage and announce I was single (divorce was just finalized), I've had them tell girls to get on stage on flash the camera while they posed next to them, and I had one drummer give me a stick and had me beat on a drum while he got a drink.

I've also had women grabbing my crotch (most local shows don't have a pit, so I'm stuck in the crowd), use me as a pole for their pole dance, and generally rub on me because I was somehow associated with the band.

Yeah, I love taking shots of local bands. :)

Oh another one, the BIGKids set at the festival I was covering....the lead singer threw away the microphone cover towards the crowd because she didn't like it, a gust of wind made it change direction...and guess who stood there (on purpose), yes me when it hit me...cue laughter from the crowd
