It is amazing to be photographing concerts at this moment, as all the bands I grew up listening to are pulling it together and hitting the road again. I think the 90’s overall get’s glazed over as a time when bands were simply “re-imaging” the greatness that we’ve come to classify as classic rock (rock music produced primarily between 1967 – 1979). I think it is true that certain bands were heavily influenced by classic rock, but for me the 90’s was so much more. It was an influx in artistic expression through music at a time when many social issues were being brought to light for the first time. It’s almost romantic for me to articulate, and I feel that out of this beautiful influx of creativity Garbage clearly lead the pack as innovators in their genre. I mean you can’t mention the 90’s, or great front women of rock, without putting Shirley Manson at the top of the list of “Most Awesomely Talented Vocalists”. Her and her band forever made their mark on music with hits like “Stupid Girl” and “Only Happy When It Rains”, and I was so happy to have had the opportunity to photograph the first US tour since 2005.
