I've been shooting concerts for about fifteen years. I've shot some pretty big bands at some pretty big festivals and pretty big venues. It's been a fantastic learning experience, and I've had a blast photographing some of my heroes. But only now can I say with a straight face that I've photographed a cultural milestone.
It was pretty funny seeing my mom get excited about me shooting a band she's actually heard of and enjoys.
I won't bore you with any of the band's insanely convoluted history other than to mention that lead vocalist Mike Love has been a Beach Boy since 1961, with current keyboardist/singer Bruce Johnston jumping in four years later. That's over fifty years, y'all.
Okay, that's it. No more blah blah blahing or witty captions.
I lied about the captions, by the way. Sorry about that.
