About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.

        It was a great show though you are only allowed to take photographs for the first 3 songs, its a case of set up, get in and out with as many shots as you can in a short space of time. Adam was nice to me though, he opened with a 10 minute version of “Round Here”.

        When I shot Sir Tom Jones during the summer we were only allowed 90 seconds LOL

        Not far off actually, Our shots had to be vetted and any where he was obviously sweating had to be removed.

        One of the biggest challenges with shooting gigs is that you can’t use flash. This is a real problem when the light is overwhelmingly blue. Thats one of the reasons you see so many black and white gig shots. Blue lights suck!!

        I’ll bear that in mind. When I attend concerts, I’m usually in the cheap seats, so my pictures are always blurry splashes of indistinct colour. I’m like, “That speck in the middle is John Mayer, see?” I get the funniest “If you say so…” looks. I need a better camera. Or more expensive seats.
