Diamond Head-Cairo Son and Dead Man’s Whiskey-Islington o2 Academy

Opener Dead Man's Whiskey, from London,  managed to charm me with their heavy rock, I wouldn't mind seeing them again actually. For a band that has only been together two years they show a lot of promise. Cairo Son's music is not my cup of tea, so a after the three songs no flash, yet

Metal On Metal Festival in Ulft

If I am not mistaken this is the 2nd time that this festival is being organised in the Dru Cultuur Fabriek in Ulft in the east of the Netherlands. Almost 500 people had bothered to show up and check out a handful of tribute bands such as Unforgiven and The Art Of Pantera, but also

The Seattle metal outfit Sanctuary graced London a visit before embarking on a mainland Europe tour with Overkill. I shot Sanctuary back in the 80's when they played Aardschok Festival in 1988. where Megadeth was the headliner. I only found out by chance that they were coming down a fortnight ago, and after nabbing their

Paper vs Digital

Since dropping my Facebook account I have replaced it with reading a load of books, I suggest you all do the same :-) I realised that whenever I had a spare moment I ended up grabbing my iPhone and browse through the timeline and concluded that the large majority of my so called 'friends' had

Ice Age

After I left military service (444 IBC) in August 1988 I stayed at my parents' house for a few months where I managed to get on their nerves and was more or less told to get my act together (read: get a job and move out :) ) so I started to become an apprentice

Blackfoot in Amsterdam 1982

Since I have been spending some time scanning some of my archive in I came across these two shots of Blackfoot, Rickey Medlocke, Charlie Hargrett, Jackson Spires and Greg T. Walker who opened up for Iron Maiden and Scorpions. Funny thing is that these two shots are actually the first two shots I ever took

Film scans

The last few days I have had my scanner on and threw a few negs in  and low and behold we have a few shots to show :) Obviously these are the rejects / outtakes, call it what you want it, and the good stuff stays 'secret' until the book will be published, but at

Scanning my metal archive

So I finally decided to start scanning my metal archive (I think Gerd-Jan Vleugels' passing made me get my finger out I suppose), the large majority being from 1982-1987. Quite an undertaking, I am looking at having to scan in about 1,500-2,000 images from which I will have to edit it down to about 10/20%
