So where can start. I've been off the scene for while it would seem. I actually haven't and as I said in my last blog,I was putting things that seemed important at the time first and leaving others behind. Now i've realized what I actually wanna get done and hopefully with hard work and percistance in the next year i'll be able to make my dreams actually become a reality.
With 8 Days till new year. 2011 looks promising but i've gotta change things and make it work.
So enough of me and onto the story of how I got Kiss in this album. Turning up at the SECC that night I was pretty nervous, dunno why as i've done it about a million times before as it would seem. But there was pressure due to the the size of the band,how good they are to shoot,just everything about them was meant to be brillant. So i was looking forward to shooting something that would be lit up like the sun. A change for Glasgow,since its usually pitch black.
Plus I had my mentor there that night too. For you who don't know its my great mate John Lewis,I knew his stuff was gonna turn out good as he never fails to deliver in my book. It was all pressure that night.
So shooting the gig was like a blur,the lights,the eye contact,the interaction with the crowd. I can see how Kiss are such a big deal. Its a totally crowd friendly show and they love it. Looking to me as if they give it 110% to every show. Which is great after all they years. Something i'm sure the fans appricate since they have paid so much to see a band they love.
So after shooting what seemed like 2 seconds of the show we were ejected as usual. Coming out and walking back to the car to go put our gear in I moaned(not a surprise since it was my favourite thing to do) to John that I had made a total balls up of it.
Dunno why,I just felt like I let him down and some there people. I really thought I have made a total A class cock up....
So forgetting about that me and john when back in to watch the band that he loved and a band that as usual I had only heard one of there songs. Luckily I had heard of them as its not unusual for me to go to a gig and not have heard of a band who use to be massive and I defo should have hard of them.
Win some you lost some I say.
Right so finishing this off so i don't waffle anymore,leaving it with this.
Sometimes it takes a real kick up the backside before you realise what your not doing.
Theres more than one positive out of every negative. #PMA
