Babyshambles

Title: Babyshambles

Caption: So, there we were at The Dublin Castle in Camden Town, London with Pete Doherty and Babyshambles. It was very, very sweaty hot and awkward in there. Peter did one of his usual mad flying acts. He never seems to care about getting hurt or anything. He just gets stuck in.

The band had just played to about 100,000 people. This photo was taken on the walk back to the dressing rooms.

London Amy Duffy - London Glastonbury 2008. I was absolutely knocked out by his performance at Glastonbury. I had never photographed hum before. I was very familiar with his music though. He came onto the main stage and was fantastic. Nicko McBrain of Iron Maiden is an absolutely fantastic drummer. He is also a real showman. There are only certain songs that I can get into his drum area during a gig and this was one of them. I have only a few seconds before all hell lets loose and the band fire up big time. Then I get out of the way as Nicko's drum technician takes my place and takes control of the situation. Norman Cook AKA Fat Boy Slim performing at The Brixton Academy Brixton, London This is one of my favourite shots of Pete Doherty and Babyshambles. This was taken during a stage riot at Reading Music Festival. Peter decided to invite all 15000 people onto the stage during the gig. The security were not impressed and complete mayhem unfolded. There were fights musical instruments were thrown into the crowd it was madness. This shot was right in the middle of this and it seemed like a one second gap in that madness. In fact if you didnt know how mad things were, you would think that it was all well and it looks nice peaceful and serene! BRIT Awards London Queen & Paul Rodgers performing in London's Hyde Park
