Unfortunately I cannot show you photography that is produced by music, nor can I show you music that is a result of photography. Yet I can show you photographs I have shot of musicicans, bands, and rock-n-roll idols from a few moments in history that I am so glad I was there to see and capture!
These first few photographs are random shots of buskers in Rundle Mall, an arcade in the Adelaide CBD, South Australia:

I’d really like the opportunity to shoot more recent rock idols, yet so very glad I was there to photograph Jimmy Barnes, Johnny Diesel, and James Reyne.
