In 1998 John Frusciante rejoined the Chili Peppers and the first big show on rejoining the band was at the RFK Stadium in 1998 on the Free Tibet concert. Due to bad weather on the Saturday when the band were due to perform the concert was cancelled. The band were then told there was no room for them to play on the Sunday line up. Pearl Jam close friends of the band gave up 20 minutes of their set time and The Peppers got to play 4 songs. Anthony at the end of 'Give it Away' used to chuck his guitar to the bands roadie to catch and I managed to take one of my favourite shots of the band.

2012
A3

Taken at Leeds festival 2012. In all the years Ive spent shooting the Foo's (Around 18 years now) Ive spent allot of time chasing Dave around various photo pits in many countries. This was the first and only time Ive ever seen ALL the band in the pit! I only managed to get a few shots as there was that much chaos going on coupled with poor light.

Without a doubt Leeds and Reading festivals in 2012 were the best gigs I've seen the band play in the past 10 years.

Perhaps one of those moment where you have to pinch yourself to be reminded how lucky you can be. This shot was taken in the Chateau MarMont hotel in LA. After spending 5 days with Anthony as he wrote lyrics and recorded the vocals in the hotel suite converted into a studio for the 'By the Way' album. On the last day Anthony said I could go into the vocal booth with him as he actually sang the vocal track to Venice Queen a song off the album. This will always be a very special song to me.
