I cant wait for it. I think conor is ace, i have backstage access not just pit access, and it's going to be my first gig under the new british smoking ban! Ill be able to ride home on the train and not stink of the stuff. Should be a great gig all round.

x:lol:

Em, English ban you mean, 'up north' we've had the ban for a year already...

Both beautiful with stunning eyes :shock:

No contest... Turbonegro, but only if I had waterproof casing on my gear.

Don't you mean "bloodproof"? Hehe!

Hopefully will be photographing them again when they tour Australia (have stated they will on their latest myspace blog) - one of the most fun bands I have ever seen! Looking forward to getting their new album.

I swear you guys must be thinking of GWAR. I've shot Turbonegro twice headlining and there was no flying fluids to be found. GWAR on the other hand requires plastic bags and UV filters at the very least :)

I'd like to shoot:
Rammstein - so much fire!
Kiss - High contrast makeup, spectacular lighting and more fire!
Iron Maiden - Long time favorite
Judas Priest - same as aboive

In 2003 it was definitely Turbonegro that doused the crowd in "dolphin blood" the band then threw feathers all over the crowd which created quite a bloody mess - looked like murder in the henhouse!

It's a pity Hank has given up his ass rocket routine - that would be something to capture!!!

Norwegian punk-rock brutes Turbonegro are infamous for their pyrotechnical stage-antics. This includes the ass-rocket - a giant roman candle being lit from their singer’s backside.

I've never seen GWAR. Here is a pretty average photo of Hank holding up the bucket of "dolphin blood" that I took with a point and shoot - if you look at some of the upraised arms you can see they are covered in blood.

One I've shot before - Pink Floyd. I'd love to shoot PF with a DSLR and some good lenses.

Alas - I can dream on.

TOOL - Other than the fact that they're my favorite band, don't have another reason.

Tina Turner - Music and stagewise
Robbie Williams - Cos I'm just a fan. :p
Justin Timberlake - After seeing him in concert I have to admit he's good on stage. And I'm still bloody mad the photo store was closed so I couldn't buy myself a small P&S. Grrr... I had such a good seat!

I'd also like to shoot some musical actually.

Saw Turbonegro several times now, last time in Glasgow (a couple of years ago) they 'tarred and feathered' the entire front of the audience and Hank complained 'cause the venue wouldn't allow him to do his 'ass rocket' routine. Maybe when you saw them headlining they weren't allowed to do either? It's just not punk unless the lead singer has a roman candle shooting 10ft sparks out his backside!! :lol: Look forward to seeing them when they tour here in August, though undecided as to whether I'll be risking my 400D or not...

Grrrr. Do not sneek in camera if you are not allowed to bring one in.

On the other hand, your have some great shots of Semlor, princesstårta, avenyn, kungsportsbron och kanalen, operan (fast jag föredrar gamla opera huset) and a lot of other good stuff.

Your nature photography is pretty cool.

Anyway - nice pictures of my old home town there.

Wow. None of that in Oct 2003 or Oct 2005 in Seattle. I can't see them not being allowed to do the blood at the 2005 show as GWAR plays the same venue regularly. I am glad they didn't though as I would have been running for cover. The ass rocket is probably just too much for US audiences or venues :)

When I shoot a wet show like GWAR I put my camera in a gallon sized ziploc bag with a hole just slightly smaller than the front of the lens. I seal it up by screwing a UV filter in over the small bit of plastic that hangs over the diameter of the lens. I have gotten totally soaked (GWAR seems to pick on photogs) but my camera has always stayed nice and dry.

do they all still have to be alive? because if not, then led zeppelin would be on that list for sure. but then again, so would jimi, janis, frank...............

living, i think prince would be a good portfolio shot. i guess most of pink floyd is still living so that is a good answer. i saw roger waters a couple of months ago and it was a great show. i couldn't even find anyone that even had a line on credentials. i could have taken a point an shoot in there though. also richard, i'm with you on tom waits; however, i think i would rather have that time to talk to him than to photograph him.

He's on my list of people I would love to invite to a dinner party!

I love your Lou Reed quote too - have seen him a couple of times and each time he was sensational but alas wasn't photographing him.

There are quite a few bands/musicians that are no longer with us that I would love to have photographed and I am lucky enough to have photographed many people have listed on the board here and many of the people on my "list" I have photographed - that's why I went with Tom Waits... my second pick would be Neil Young.

Nice tip! Maybe try this out when the TurboJugend roll into town later in the year (if I can get accreditation) or next time I take a trip on the river in my mates canoe! :)

Wouldn't mind shooting Genesis on Saturday, the staging looks incredible, but given that it's an outdoor gig, I reckon some of the effect will be lost at this time of year.
