Well you should. I’m sure you have heard of this game, or maybe you and your friends have even tried it once or twice. If you have no idea what I’m talking about it’s basically a game where the idea is you can connect Kevin Bacon to any actor in less than 6 steps. For example we will use my favorite: Audrey Hepburn. Audrey Hepburn was in “How to Steal a Million” with Eli Wallach who was in “Mystic River” with Kevin Bacon. BOOM! Now wasn’t that easy!? It doesn’t hurt either with a little help from our friend, The Internet
I’ve sorta had a thing for Kevin Bacon since “Apollo 13” I’m usually met with odd inquisitive stares when I list him as the first actor when asked the question “which actor do you find attractive?” But I don’t care I’m a loud and proud KB supporter! Here’s another little fact for you, that you may not be familiar with: he is in a band with his brother, aptly titled The Bacon Brothers. Now before you go on the “oh no another actor in a crappy band rant” let me say this is no Keanu Reeves “Dogstar” band. I dig their music and Kevin Bacon can sing too in case your wondering. Now I have seen their band more times than I can remember, should this fact cause me embarrassment? Some of you may answer with a resounding “YES!” but again I’m gonna own it 100%. The first time I saw them play I was in 7th grade, yup you read that right 7th grade so 13ish?? And I don’t wanna brag but I met him after at a private show at the now non existent Planet Hollywood. I hope you read that sentence and imagined me brushing my knuckles on my shoulder.
The photos from this concert were actually taken at last year’s Comic Con when he was there promoting his new show “The Following” And you can bet I was excited to hear the band would be performing, and for free no less! SWEET!
Concert photography was my first real foray into photographing people. I quite enjoyed the energy and raw emotion in it that is not much unlike what I get from shooting a wedding. I guess there was some sort of a natural progression happening there!
