    Photos: Steve Winwood – Live @ The Honda Center, Anaheim

    I am a big fan of Steve Winwood. I love his singing with the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic is one of my favorite bands of the late 60′s/early 70′s, and I even have a soft spot for some of his cheesy 1980′s output. For this 2014 tour, including this Anaheim, CA tour stop on October […]

    The Rolling Stones (w/Mick Taylor) – Live @ The Staples Center

    The Rolling Stones (w/Mick Taylor) – Live @ The Staples Center, 2013. Concert photography by Scott Dudelson. My favorite era Rolling Stones is 1969-1973 with Mick Taylor on guitar. During this Staples Center show on the ’50 and Counting’ tour, Mick Taylor guested on four songs including an epic jam on ‘Can’t You Hear Me […]

    Tyler the Creator (of Odd Future) @ Coachella 2013. Concert photography by Scott Dudelson. Tyler the Creator was all over Coachella 2013. Although he did not perform, he was spotted during Earl Sweatshirt’s set, in the photo pit for Pusha T (at which time i showed him this pic and got an indifferent reaction along […]

    Photos: Bumblefoot – Live @ Life is Beautiful Festival 2014

    Who is Bumblefoot, and how did he get such an awesome name? I was asked that by a couple people at the Life is Beautiful festival in Vegas. I don’t really have the answer to the latter question (read it on wikipedia, but his real name is Ron Thal – not as cool). A fellow photographer at the Life is Beautiful festival did let me know that Bumblefoot is a former guitar player from the recent era Guns N’ Roses incarnation. Based on the fact he was standing in front of me and performing in a band called Surface Rising, i am assuming this is what Bumblefoot has been up to since leaving Guns N’ Roses. (more…)

    In the late 1990′s Butch Walker was best known as the singer of one-hit wonder rock outfit Marvelous 3. They had a pretty good single with “Freak of the Week” in about 1998, but the band went quiet after that. But Butch Walker in the last decade has had quite a career revival. (more…)

    Chris Robinson will always been best known as the singer and focal point of The Black Crowes. And that’s great, the Black Crowes had some really good years (the one’s with Marc Ford on guitar being the best for my money). But post-Black Crowes, Chris Robinson has not gotten the attention he deserves because he’s still got it going on, and his new outfit The Chris Robinson Brotherhood is one hell of a band. (more…)

    Ryan Adams is a fairly polarizing figure. You either like or hate both his personality and music. I happen to fall on the side of enjoying both his personality (fucking crazy, pretty funny), and music (eclectic and prolific). (more…)

    OK, i haven’t thought about them in years, you haven’t thought about them in years, but it turns out The Presidents of the United States of America (PUSA) are not only still a band, but at FYF Festival they showed they are a genuinely awesome band.

    The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band gets a bad wrap from folks of my generation. In the 1980′s and 1990′s, mainstream country was kinda sad (and still is to be honest, IMHO), and these guys didn’t seem to make it any cooler (their 1989 Will the Circle Be Unbroken sequel notwithstanding). (more…)

    I will not go on about it in future posts, but I will state here for the record that the Lockn Festival in Arrington, VA is one of the best festivals in the country. Nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountatins, the festival site is settled on a patch of hundreds of acres of land, with festival camping sites all around it. (more…)

    Photos: Peter Frampton – Live @ The Hollywood Bowl

    Peter Frampton Guitar Circus Live at Hollywood Bowl by Scott Dudelson Photos: Peter Frampton   Live @ The Hollywood Bowl

    While Peter Frampton has become most associated as a solo act (via being the creator of mega hits – “Baby I Love Your Way,” and “Show Me the Way”), I like first think of Peter Frampton as guitarist for Humble Pie. With the death of singer Steve Marriott over 20 years ago, there is no chance of a Humble Pie reunion, and thus when Peter Frampton performs there are never any songs from that catalog (despite Frampton noting that this Bowl show was his first time back performing at the venue since his time with Humble Pie). Bummer. (more…)

    There is no argument to be made: Wynonna Judd is a bona fide country music legend. For over thirty years, Wynonna Judd – solo and along with The Judds – has been churning out country pop hits. And to a younger generation who may not know Wynonna Judd as a singer, they may know her from television appearances on Touched by an Angel and her stint as a contestant on season 16 of Dancing with the Stars.

    Since 2012 i’ve seen the girls of Garfunkel and Oates popping up on festival bills – FYF in 2012, Festival Supreme in 2013 – and each time caught the performance and laughed my ass off. I continued my annual tradition of seeing Garfunkel and Oates this time at The Barbary tent at the Outside Lands Festival in Golden Gate Park. (more…)
