That DEF LEPPARD Needs A Hearing Aid

Def Leppard/ Bryan Adams Concert
TODAY SHOW-Rockefeller Center Plaza
May 27, 2005
7am press call

There were two seperate stages set up on either side of the plaza, with two seperate press pits.
Both pits had risers, but were half the usual size. Bryan Adams preformed on the 48th street stage Def Leppard on the 49th St. one.

This was a tough one to shoot. Adams never left the mic while playing guitar= not good photo.
Def Leppard was very tough. Open shade on the stage, sunny backround (watch those hot highlights!); and once again, the staff photographer for NBC shooting right in front of the pit, as well as a video guy, another guy with a kid, not to mention the usual three camera crew shooting the show. One photographer had words with that staff photog. I believe the term he used was "You're an a-hole" or something effective like that.

I actually was told by that "It's-all-about-me-myself-and-I-and-my-pictures" f@#%$ that I didn't need to be an asshole about him being in the way...

Well, I'm truly sorry if I offended your feelings dear, but maybe if you hadn't been STAYING IN MY FUCKING WAY AND BLOCKING MY SHOTS EVERY SINGLE FRIDAY (OR MONDAY, OR THURSDAY) FOR THE PAST 3 WEEKS I WOULDN'T NEED TO BE ONE TO BEGIN WITH...

My balls are starting to itch and that's making me angry, and you won't like me when I'm angry...

So take your roaming privileges and put them to good use, for example : STAY THE FUCK OUT OF THE PENNED UP PHOTOGRAPHERS' WAY !!!

Trust me, your feelings will thank you for that ;-)
