This page contains pictures of some Famous/Infamous People (In my eyes) whom I have met through my many years of photography, journalism and writing.  All of the individuals posted I have had the pleasure and some not, to meet them.  Many people meet lots of people in their travels.  Some are famous and some are infamous in someone's eyes.  They go through their lives and never tell their stories of those people and the stories remain untold, or undiscovered until the person dies or gets very old and shares the stories with grand or great-grand children.  I have decided, whether people are interested or not I am going to show pictures of my Famous/Infamous people. 

Jack Russell Founder Member of "Great White"
 
 "Jack Russell's Great White."
 
 
 

Jack Russell was a Founding Member and the lead singer of the Rock Band “Great White.”  As many bands of my era, they too fell under the spells of the drugs and alcohol abuse.  He also has many health issues which contributed to his self-medicating.

They were a multiplatinum band with a bluesy hard rock feel performing songs, over six million, like; “Rock Me,” “Save Your Love” and the band’s cover, which received a Grammy Award nomination for “Best Hard Rock Performance” of Ian Hunter’s “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” instead earning a double platinum certification for the album “…Twice Shy.”

 

In December of 2011 he continued with his own band, as not to cause confusion, called “Jack Russell’s Great White.”

February 20, 2003 was the day of the fire at the Station, a Rhode Island nightclub, during a show by Jack Russell’s Great White, caused by pyrotechnics and highly flammable sound insulation; making the band only partially responsible for the incident, as well as, other documented issues.  The fire killed 100 people, including the band's guitarist, Ty Longley. 

Jack Has bounced back again and is now touring with his “Jack Russell’s Great White” and they are as great as ever. 

I was the lead photographer for one of the promoters and was fortunate enough to meet jack and the band in Douglas County a few years ago.  He is a respectful man and I found it to be a great pleasure to meet them.  He is only 9 months older than I am.

Patten and Goff
 
 

Well, I had the pleasure, I think, of meeting a couple of goof-balls from Virginia, Lucien Patten and Lane Goff, who are YouTube sensations when their song “Proud of Who I Am,” went viral a few years back.  They are in the military and have had the chance to do some touring.  I met them at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Castle Rock Colorado, when again, I was a lead photog for one of the promoters of the event.  My wife even got the chance to get a hug from the two.  I told them it is the least they could do after making me the butt of one of their jokes.
