Tour commemorating the Reckless album.
With encore special guests Peter Frampton, Brian Campbell of the Chicago Blackhawks, and the Stanley Cup (I had dropped back to my seat and was taking video, which I rarely do – full video to follow).
Set cut short by technical difficulties.
Metal, with a few jazz numbers thrown in for good measure.
Lot’s of Guess Who and BTO hits!
For some reason Ozzy kept saying ‘coo-coo’ to the crowd between songs. Oh wait, its Ozzy.
Two legends at Air Canada Centre,
Tom Scholtz is a genius!
All the hits, but hard to photograph in the rain.
Soul / R&B legend, July of 2004 – taken with a disposable film camera. One on my earliest concert images.
Popular 90’s band from England.
Rick Nielsen used what might have been close to a million dollars worth of vintage guitars during this set.
Legendary Texas singer/songwriter Guy Clark show from 2005. R.I P. Guy.
Life. Highway. You know the drill.

Rock and Roll. Hoochie Coo!
With guitar hot-shot Nino Bettencourt.
Showed us the way!

Last London appearance for this great band. Unfortunately, they were very difficult to photograph with the point-and-shoot I was using back then.
Really only half of KISS.
Fun rock ‘n’ roll!!
Such a fantastic, yet underrated band!
Yes, it’s really only Gary Rossington left from the original (and at least it Ronnie Van Zant’s younger brother Johnny on vocals), but they still play well
Another great guitarist!
From the Bayfest and Rock The Park shows.
Voice was as strong and passionate as on the original recordings.
Scottish rock ‘n’ roll!
From two London appearances.

The virtuoso guitarist from West Virginia included a credible instrumental verson of Van Halen’s ‘Hot For Teacher’ in the set.

Was very excited to see Tom Petty for the very first time here in London Ontario – which was also his first visit to London ever!
A band that rocks a lot harder live than on record – great band!
Well, in a nutshell, the Rolling Stones were a well oiled rock ‘n roll machine at this Toronto show.
Many Canadians consider this their “Woodstock”, not for cultural or generational change reasons – mostly from an endurance standpoint!
Was fortunate enough to see two shows on Rush’s Clockwork Angels tour!
Large gallery of images from a magcial show!

A few hours after seeing Johnny in tent at this event I saw Edgar in a different tent!
They put him in a tent? Really odd.
From 2012. This was the most difficult time I have had shooting a concert – and I was front row, standing against the barrier at one side.
The Reverend Billy F. Gibbons.
Best show I’ve seen from the Lil’ Ol’ Band From Texas.
