The Rolling Stones


Through an assignment from The Chicago Sun Times, who asked me to photograph Keith Richards for an article to promote his first solo album “The Xpensive Winos” I met Keith and his manager and was asked to spend some time on the road with him on his first solo tour in 1988. This resulted in me being asked to spend about three months with the Rolling Stones on their Steel Wheels tour in 1989. Following this I spent about a month on Keith’s Main Offender Tour in 1993, a month on the Stones Voodoo Lounge Tour in 1994, and the opening week of the Bridges to Babylon tour in 1997.

This photo was taken at Trump Casino at the end of the Steel Wheels tour during a pay-per-view concert where Axl Rose (among others) was invited to sit in with the Stones.
