New York Dolls Newcastle Cluny 2010

I am still recovering from the three night stint of New York Dolls at The Cluny here in Newcastle. It has been like the holiday season to be photographing a band I admire and have followed  for all of my adult life and before – which is a long time.

I was lucky enough to see Johnny Thunders play at Newcastle Riverside – back then never in my wildest dreams could I have envisaged seeing the New York Dolls playing at a pub under Byker Bridge – I feel now anything is possible.

In 2004 I saw their first reunion at Royal Festival Hall at the time I thought it was going to be their two gigs at that venue then they would go back to doing their solo work – since they have delivered two strong relevant albums songs from which they play in their live set-  they are not just are not just relying on past glories. It was good to hear some new songs at the gigs from their new album which they are recording here in Newcastle.

You can see my photographs from their Royal Festival Hall gig on my Flickr page

Anyhow I must admit I felt more pressure than normal shooting these gigs as I really wanted to do the band justice at such keynote  gigs for our area.
