Bootsy Collins Funks the Halls

Legendary bass-man Bootsy Collins brought the funk to California this December for a week that went down in the books. Bootsy Collins is the Cincinnati funk master associated with James Brown, Parliament-Funkadelic, George Clinton, Dee-Lite and many other acts. Collins is a member of the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame and has been regarded as the Jimi Hendrix of the Bass Guitar. Collins is a pleasure to photograph as his outfits change every couple songs. Bootzilla played all the classics and one of the best versions of "Cosmic Slop" and "I'd Rather Be With You" that I have ever heard in all my years of lovin' the funk. "Everyone have a good New Year, baby."

PHISH at Madison Square Garden - 12.28.12

Kicking off their “almost” annual New Years run at Madison Square Garden, Phish appeared for their 24th show at the venerated arena on December 28th.  From the first notes of opener Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan through to the closing cover of Zepplin’s Good Times Bad Times, Anastiasio and band mates delighted fans with a strong, rousing night of music.  People familiar with MSG know that the structure is actually a suspended bowl, and at several points during the night the arena could be felt literally “jumping” to the music.
